Re: Jack Reacher yes,no, maybe so

That's too bad, I'd enjoy another installment.

It also goes to show that no matter how many times you hear some internet faceless poster scream that a movie has to make 2.5x budget to get a sequel or be deemed profitable you can laugh it off. It's not even rule of thumb. If that were true you'd think a film that cost $60m to make would be fine then with $150m-$175m worldwide. However that article is citing inside sources saying it needs $250m worldwide to ensure a sequel. That's a little over 4x budget for the film.

It's just over $150m ww now, and as much as Cruise has a following in the Asian markets getting another $100m seems to be, well...an impossible mission.
