Re: Why would someone avoid STID but see Iron Man & Man Of Steel? spoi
Good Grief do we have to go over this again. A movies has to make double (actually its closer to triple now) it's production cost because what it is usually reported is the Gross Box office. As for a sequel, since Abrams is making Star Wars, isn't 2016 too early.
Hollywood has been in the business of adding a good amount of padding to the public budget numbers for many years now. Star Trek Into Darkness
likely cost nowhere near that $190 million dollar total that's been made public.
As far as Abrams goes, he will likely produce the third feature not direct. So it should still be on for a 2016 premiere.
Besides, Oz, the Great and Powerful
is suppose to be getting a sequel and it made $491 million worldwide on a $234 million dollar budget.
