How anyone can say King Kong was a flop needs there head checking last time I check...$550 million off a $207 million budget is good buissness and not too mention the movie was outstanding.
Kong turned out to be very profitable as domestic and worldwide grosses eventually added up to $550 million, becoming the fourth-highest grossing movie in Universal Pictures history. Strong DVD sales also added over $100 million to the grosses.
yeh big failure there.
Superman Returns may of only made $100 million profit or so but thats far from a failure. Who the hell gives any movie a budget that big anyway.
