That is a great example! Even the second one made a ton on a small budget of 3 million I believe?
DVD sales says $16,624,990! I do not know if that includes Blue Ray and it def. does not include the second one.
You guys are seeming to forget the marketing costs.The advertising budget for PA is most likely much bigger than it's whole production budget.
Green Lantern.It has a 200M$ production cost + an estimated 100M$(!) marketing budget.
The movie hasn't even reached 200M worldwide,I think it's Warner Bros.'s biggest flop in a loooong time.Even bigger than Jonah Hex http://boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=jonahhex.htm
