Not really... even FF6 skews much younger I think.
Thanks, it's nice to have specifics.
Wonder what the 1.1 overhead was at that point? Would they have been charging STARFLEET ACADEMY development to TUC? Nobody had used up a pay-or-play either, as Bennett's contract was already up before he departed.
I am surprised that TFF's approved budget was over 30 ... kind of makes me wonder where some of that went. You've got locations work, yeah, got half a mil for Paradise City, maybe 300 grand for the new bridge, whatever it costs to build WONDERFUL new phasers and a couple shuttlecraft mockups ... 300 grand for an unusable rock creature ...
I'm a staunch defender of Shat and TFF, but man, they sure should have spent that money in more efficient ways. This does perhaps show why it was so important for them to release on schedule though. I'd always wondered why they didn't just slip back to xmas and have more time to refine the cut and do some additional VFX work with other vendors (people who could shoot motion control models with natural BLUR!), but I suppose they figured the interest costs alone would be enough to not make the delay worthwhile.
I haven't gone through the budget line by line, so I can't be sure. There is $1.1 million of producer's overhead indicated in the detailed budget ($600,000 for Jaffe/Meyer, $400,000 for Konner/Rosenthal, and $100,000 for Winter), but without looking in more detail I can't say if this figure is included in the overall cost or not (the thing is a 48 page document, after all).
On the other hand, the Winter memo I previously mentioned (which outlines a budget for TUC which is much more substantial than that of the final picture) includes a list of several expenditures for the aborted Academy project, which total $1,320,000.
After Earth opens May 31 and is in IMAX.
From the looks of it it'll drop like a stone...
Yeah, I don't think AE is going to do particularly well. The trailer didn't look very good, and I think last I read the tracking was at about 30m?!
Will Smith should do Sci Fi, not nepotism...
Speaking of After Earth in the ads Will Smith's voice sounds really weird. It barely sounds like him at all.
I'm seeing it again today...and hopefully the third time will be in Imax.
Seen it twice so far, once in 3D, once in 2D. I'll probably go again before it is out of theatres. a) because I enjoy it, and b) because I want this movie and franchise to do as well as possible
It will be in select IMAX theatres - go to the IMAX website and put in your zip code to find out if it is.
So in some areas it will push STiD out. Also, Fast & Furious 6 will be in select IMAX as well.
(not mine...for both movies )
BTC currently has it tracking at $40 million, and Now You See Me, which opens on the same weekend, at $18 million.
Pre-opening Hangover3 does $3.1M from WED late shows starting at 10p. Far cry from Hangover2's $10.4M WED midnights on same night. Down 70% vs H2 from 2 yrs ago
I believe that we have no need to fear Hangover3 and After Earth.
STID breaks $100M today 1 wk after IMAX bow.
From a guy on hsx.com forum.
Again, pinch of salt required but perhaps some cautious optimism ?
5.3m today for Star Trek into darkness
Star Trek made $5,790,449 on the Wednesday following its opening weekend.
Fantastic for a Wed. With TH2 looking bad, looks like STID will have some legs.
Wednesday actual for STiD: $5,327,026 for $103,773,288 so far.
I'm taking the wife and our daughter to see it again (2D this time) on Sunday.
The movie will make back its stated production cost by Friday. Pretty good.
Not that it actually cost that much, of course.
