    Robocop & Need for Speed will both break even or make money, so they aren’t flops

    Ya, Need for Speed may have floped domestically but it did more than okay internationally.

    Muppets Most Wanted and Mr. Peabody & Sherman both made more money than their budget, but were most likely money losers.

    Dreamworks Animation has already announced a significant writeoff on Mr Peabody

    The significant thing about Need for Speed being a hit is that Aaron Paul was pretty much unknown outside the US (not that well known here actually), and he’s a lead in Exodus, so its success came at a good time for him.

    I thought if they made money worldwide than it wasn’t a bomb.

    I’d hardly call Edge of Tomorrow a bomb; underperformer is the better term. So far it’s made back almost twice it’s budget, but you have to factor in marketing too.

    I love how people think that money made outside North America isn’t actually money.

    These are mostly underperformers. The studios will still see money from overseas.
