What would you consider a blockbuster? 45 million first week on a 3 million dollar budget. Then we have a 50-60 percent drop next weekend. It could push out close to 100 million.

Not talking about just weekend, but total. A blockbuster would be near or over 1 Billion total in the box-office. (Purely my definition.)

Nah, a billion is for megablockbusters. A box office hit is based more on if it wins its first weekend, how long it does well, how much it actuall makes, etc.

 

100 million will be killer for a 3 million dollar movie. Not many films make it to a billion. They are still huge hits.

It is possible The Purge could end up rethinking things.  I can also see a larger budget for a sequel and the world of the Purge be looked at further.

Like Paranormal activity before it, I think the sequels budget will not be much more.

so, north korea would be allowed to invade usa and leave before the day is over? since all the soldiers would have something else to do on that day (at home for their family) there would be nobody defending the country lol.

Universal is having a great year in general all their movies have done very good business at the box office so far and the trend will continue with Despicable Me 2. "R.I.P.D", "2Guns" and even "Rush" looks interesting even though I barely follow F1 racing.

Purge lends to a larger budget. I fail to see how Paranormal Activity could lend to a larger budget.

What are we saying here? Both had small budgets that have gone up a bit over time. I am sure The Purge 2 will have a larger budget as well.

I am worried about R.I.P.D, I really like Jeff Bridges and want this to do well. I first took notice of him with The fisher king.
