This Bond movie and especially the Hobbit film should help turn this around for MGM.

It certainly will, If both movie are worth watching they could rack in +300Million each.

Even if they are not watchable they get at least two shots of pure profit for both franchises. It has namebrand, they could completely suck and still rack in millions.

The Hobbit will make money. No doubt about it. It should be as good, if not better than LOTR, which are great.

The Hobbit, has to be good, I've been waiting on the movie for so long, that i might go crazy if it turn out to be an Average movie.

I don't think it can match the LOTR movies.
The story is a doesn't seem a compelling as any of the 3 movies. More hobbits than humans and dwarves.

Some reason I always thought Bond was WB. Either way I could never get into them. Dont know why.

-Mezzo-4586d ago

I don't understand what you mean by WB.

Warner Bros.
And you don't have to thank me.
