The movie that made huge money and spawned a sequel? I bet DC and other studios wishes they could blunder like that.
The previous films did a pretty good job explaining all of this.
Pretty sure that is what The Meg is thinking.
Moot point. Her 4 films have made almost 4 billion at the box office. That is what matters to the studio. She makes money. Now if Episode 9 tanks, then you will see a change but her record so far has been one of big profits for the majority of her projects.
1st film over 1 Billion Dollars and huge Home Video Sales, Second film, same, third film, same. 4th film did not light things up but should still do ok once home video and other factors are accounted for. I would love to see the studio where if you said I will make you three 1 Billion Box Office earners and 1 that will make a small profit who would say nope, your gone.
JUst put up the comic book schedule as well.
They have another one I added to the thread on the target page.
It is like a Swim Cap in the water.
I think it comes down to money. I remember something abut him at first not being big on being in this film as he had concerns about all the FX and did not want to be in front of a Green Screen the entire time. Then I am sure he saw who was in the cast and of course, they likely upped their offer and he was more than happy to sign on. Films like this can be tricky as although they use mostly CGI vs a mechanical shark, you have to contend with weather which causes all kinds of delays and of cou...
Looks like some really good stuff. Seeing how the movie side is not having a big presence, I figured this would be where they focused on.
I am really curious to see how they will do this. I think they will go back to the fact that he is a more cerebral guy who gets drawn into action but is not a one-man army.
I am guessing it is four vs three due to what happened recently. A before and after sort of thing?
There are several books in the series so if the movie hits, you can expect more.
They are ramping up production. The author has a new book in the series coming and his p.r. is active behind it. I like to see he is behind it not basically the well they took my story I got paid, and we will see what they do. His camp is pushing the new film hard so it seems as if the author is very much behind the film.
The biggest issue is that the premise is limiting. You have to basically have creatures go on a rampage every film.
I have not seen the first two yet. I guess it is time to start so when our Granddaughters says she wants to see it we are ready.
I am so glad I am not the only one who saw the skull and thought of the book.
I think the concern is that the three films that came before it all earned over 1 billion dollars and this one may struggle to break even according so some analysts. It was the most expensive film in the series when you factor in that 70% of the film was reshot.
Terrible release schedule. We said the moment it changed Directors that opening just after Deadpool 2 and Infinity War was a mistake especially with Incredibles 2 and Jurassic World 2 soon after. Dec. was much better. It was also just 5 months after TLJ which despite making a ton of money had fan backlash.
They also were very late with the first trailer so you did not have a long buildup. TFA had a teaser 1 year before it was released as an example.
