You seem to be more interested about how profitable movies are than about the movies themselves.
But each to their own, i guess.
Not to defend thismeintiel but to an extent i am as well(for movies I enjoy and hope to get a sequel). The better the film does with profits the more likely to get a sequel right. For example I’ll be disappointed if Alita does badly overall box office because I really want a sequel lol.
Also just want to add I even if a movie isn’t my cup of tea but part of a genre I love I hope for it to be profitable so that we can see more movies in that specific genre, example if sci fi continuously were to bomb at the box office why would anyone make a sci fi film?
