Forums - Movies Discussion - Frank Miller's Sin City: A Dame to Kill For : The biggest bomb of the year?

With a Budget of 60-80 million, and with the original making well over 100 million dollars domestically, it seems the Sequal has floundered.

I say it was either way to violent, or people have moved on. Was it not put out nearly a decade ago? Or is there another reason? Did it only come out Sunday night? Was there a global power outage for Sin City films only?

According to Boxofficemojo it was released on 2894 screens, and I doubt it will get anymore.

 

There have been other bombs, but I cannot help to think that this is one of the biggest. Especially with how big the DVD/BluRay was, the ratings it gets on television and how much the first one made.

 

Agree?

Maybe it's because you can read A Dame to Kill for in a matter of two minutes?

The Hobbit part three is only like the last 20 pages of the book if I remember correctly, yet it is still probaly going to be 3 hours and really good.

 

this is not an excuse Mr. Wright. It is in fact Wrong.



I think the gap (9 years?!) from the original had a lot to do with it. It was in development for a long time and much of the enthusiasm around it seemed to peter off the longer it took.

It does seem to be the biggest flop though as no way it comes close to making any money.

Marketing could have been a problem.

I had no idea they made a sequel to this movie till today.

I don't think the marketing budget for it was strong. I didn't even know it was out and I go to movie theater quite a bit.

Not sure. How much the ninja turtles did? (commercially)

As of the 24th its at $145 million in NA, estimated $93 million in other countries.  So $238 total.

Budget was $125 million.

I didn't know it was out yet to be totally honest...I loved the 1st one.

wii 102.5 ps3 87.5 xb360 87.5 lt

ps4 17+ wii  10.7-11xbone 8.5-9.5  3ds 54-55m by the end of 2014

ps4 100M  wii u 35-36 xbone 34-36 3ds 93 or 103m

3ds last successor should sell 30m or 40m(a miracle could happen),85m or 95 till 2017(new hanheld series)3ds might sell 8m,ds sold 12.5m in 2011-2013

wii u has a new base of 60k,doubled thanks to mk8.it s high likely ,doubling effect to continue for the rest year.I estimate july/august 454k sept/oct, 500k-600k(hyrule warriors bayonetta bundles and pre holiday month) nov900k(super smas bros the great)2.2 dec(ninty is a beast on holidays,especially now with mk and ssbu)

prediction: ps4 might lose one or more npd because of halo,it is huge in usa(not too big in europe)however wont theaten ps4 or even wii u,with a boost which might be permament,but only in usa. My prediction is based on what mario kart did for wii u in all territories!i also expecting it to win destiny,because even in a base of 24m the average of the two halo games is 7.5M
