Ultimately, wouldn't ever penny that came in on this be considered pure profit?
No because making the movie, putting it in theaters, and ads were all taken care of from WB and would have pst more than the 5.7 million.
There is a number in place that would make a sequel happen, and it's not a low number. The sequel would not be paid for by the fans so it needs to be shown that this is actually a franchise and not some one off fluke.
But it will be cheaper than say the Firefly franchise because of no sets or special effects.
But I thought I read somewhere it opens up in more theaters next weekend, so that would be nice. I'd go with my mom (I made her a fan!) if it played anywhere within 50ish miles.
