    The movie did extremely well in the theaters and its a great film to watch with your family so a bit disappointed.

    Jesus, are Lionsgate in that much trouble?

    They launched John Wick & Now You See Me from okay-grossing first films to viable franchises (from ORIGINAL IP too).

    Knives Out 1 done far better than they did and given how they apparently getting $225m per acquisition, I imagine they assume that’s the profit margin they would’ve made on each film.

    Sigh. major entertainment in 10 years time is just gonna Disney & Netflix, isn’t it?

    Absolutely loved the first film. I hope Ana de Armas returns in one of these sequels.

    Did no one bother to read the article before commenting? Lionsgate didn’t have sequel rights. MRC and Johnson went for the biggest paycheck, which obviously was going to come from a streamer. I think Netflix will treat these films more like their annual awards contenders than a “To All the Boys” or “Old Guard” franchise. At the very least, Johnson is writing and directing both films, but by all means everyone freak out without knowing all the details.

    $225 million for a sequel of a $40 million movie that made $310 million worldwide? That’s insane. Netflix just wants to take a potential new franchise off the theaters hands. That’s a ridiculously overpaid bid.

    I hate Netflix pointless obsession with destroying theaters. That’s why they’ll never win Best Picture.

    Netflix is not going to be happy when this pandemic ends and studio films gross higher on the virtue that people value them more (amongst other out of home, in person experiences) after having been separated from them for so long.

    Disney couldn’t weigh Rian Johnson down with studio bs, I seriously doubt Netflix will be able to. Beyond that, I think Knives Out proved that the recipe for success is “give Rian Johnson creative control of this franchise,” and I doubt the films will be any different on Netflix than they would be if they were released by a theatrical studio.

    Even more so when their overpays manage to outprice them from legit blockbusters. If this costs them 200 mil imagine what  an actual special effects laden blockbuster from a famous author will cost them to buy.
