    Can “Oblivion” really be considered a bomb? It obviously isn’t profitable when you take into account the marketing expenses, but the same thing can be said about “Star Trek Into Darkness”.

    “White House Down” and “The Lone Ranger” are obvious additions to the list and they may be followed by “Pacific Rim” and “R.I.P.D.”.

    “Beautiful Creatures” and “The Host” performed very poorly but there are more young adult novel adaptations on the way.

    I really don’t see how “Oblivion” is considered a bomb. It gained back double its budget.

    I hope Pacific Rim doesn’t get added to this list.

    PR has been getting decent reviews (now up to 70 on Metacritic), but the tracking is weak – as of yesterday, not projected to do more than $35 million for opening US/C weekend. That would likely mean a struggle to get to much more than $100 million domestic. Its $190 budget + perhaps $100 million marketing would mean the rest of the world would need to make up around $300 m to get to the $400 m the theatrical portion of the film’s revenues need to be – which would be a big, big stretch.
    At this point, it looks unlikely to make money. But the public has yet to officially react, so it’s all speculation, no matter how well-informed, as of now.

    Variety had an article about tracking for Pacific Rim indicating a weak opening. Given that WB gave Pacific Rim The Dark Kinight/Inception weekend spot an opening of $25-35 mil would disasterous. Variety noted the lack of a big name actor in a leading role as one problem for the film.

    Not sure Oblivion belongs there either, but any film that only doubles its production budget in its worldwide gross sometimes is a flop.

    Why?

    Because the studio only gets between 45-55% of that money – theaters get the rest.
    And the production budget doesn’t include marketing costs, which on a big budget international hit often come to $100 million more, for a film like Iron Man 3 or Man of Steel much more.
    Studios then get more money from DVDs, cable, other sales. But if a film costs $100 million, and grosses $200 million worldwide, it likely ends up losing $50-75 million.

    Me too. I thought the reviews might be wrong… but they weren’t.

    I honestly feel like it was too much like the Battleship movie except with some minor changes.
