I'm not a big fan
of these films but this is getting great reviews thus far.share
As we have seen as of late..."great reviews" do not necessarily translate to "great box office".
I've never seen anything like it but the general audiences seem to thumb their collective noses at great critical reviews.
What will matter is the audience score.
It's also rumoured to carry the usual 200 million dollar Disney price tag so it needs to be a blockbuster globally to be profitable.
prove it , show me the profit and loss that proves it has to make 200 millionshare
QFU is saying a $200 Mil production budget and for him that is his signal that the film is spending dollars in an "out of control" way.
Of course the P&A is 1 Trillion dollars! So it will have to gross 4 quadrillion
I've always wondered why these types of films (like mega Disney or other similar productions) require such a massive budget. I know animation is far from easy and takes a lot of time and that will mean a lot of money on some level too, but can't see how it would need a near quarter billion dollar production budget.
Does it really cost anything near that to get enough people to animate/produce/voice/edit this? Even factoring in pay for the voice actors and studios and 3-D animators and etc., I still can't picture how it could potentially cost anywhere near such a massive budget conceived for it.
Don't they spend most of the time conceiving the idea (which doesn't cost much really), to then gather a massive surplus of animators/team members/designers/etc. to begin working on it as swiftly as possible? Most of the money, I'd think, is in actually making it (the film and all of its resources), not conceiving it/doing a storyboard/writing it or such.
thats true , and at the end of the day , in 3d animation a you can produce a space rocket for the same price as a trashcan.share
When a movie becomes a huge hit the sequels are going to be MUCH, MUCH more to produce. Why? EVERYBODY get's paid. Look at Tim Allen's salary in the first Toy Story, I think it was 50 thousand dollars. After that he gets millions and millions for the sequels. Can you imagine what Tom Hanks and Tim Allen make in Toy Story 4? Same goes for producers, director, script writers, animators, other returning voice actors/actresses. Heck, even Don Rickles estate gets paid even though he's dead!share
I don't think they were really honest about the budget. Probably it also used as somekind of promotion material, like wow this movie spent 200 mil it must be hella good while this movie spent only 50 so special effects would be mediocre, etc.
Also most of the money goes to the stars, especially if they didn't plan the sequels so it was not in the contracts. When the first movie succeeds tremendously, they want to make another one, and the stars obviously wanted a raise... sometimes 10 to 10,000 folds eventhough they work the same.
It's also rumored to carry the usual 200 million dollar Disney price tag so it needs to be a blockbuster globally to be profitable. The operative word in that sentence is rumored isn't it?

That's some funny stuff, Norrinrad. Pixar must've outsourced the production to China.
Gee...Toy Story 3 had a budget of 200 million and that was 9 years ago. Incredible 2 from last year also had a 200 million budget. Nah...this one must be a lot cheaper.
