Oh wow. You want us to tuck you in too, tonight?
[quote="Minion;c-1240271but until then a lot of mayhem was spread through that attempt at amateur accounting. All of a sudden everywhere was re-reporting the impossible figures NTTD needed to reach to turn a profit and it became fuel for trolls. It’s not fair to ask me to drop it when nothing has been done by this website to rectify their shoddy reporting. I know based on the Twitter feed this site loves to get down on EON, but that article was a mistake and made purely for clickbait.[/quote]
Let's not be too dramatic about this, shall we? "A lot of mayhem", "fuel for trolls"? You're overestimating how much people care, if at all. But don't worry, MI6 will continue to report the figures as they come in and draw the proper conclusions, I'm sure.
Not sure about that. :D
It's projected to hit $158M by the end of the weekend.
As M said....You know the rules of the game. You've been playing it long enough
A huge deal has been made of that article. So the answer is; quite a lot of people, apparently.
It reminds me of sports fans, you want your team to win so bad, because somehow that reflects on you? Or something?
Watch the movies / read the books!
Indeed. It is especially strange since many of the most celebrated Bond films were made on relatively low budgets.
They’re just quoting Variety and their made up clickbait article.
Okay, cool. Would have expected The Times of all newspapers to be better informed, which is why I even bothered to post it.
Yeah I’m expecting a lot of upcoming new articles quoting Variety. Deadline already did one… it’s a good story, even if false.
NTTD will also make about 60% more money than MI6 HQ predicted, and more than 40% more than their most optimistic forecast. If someone makes absolutely terrible predictions like that and never follows up, it's not a great look.
One thing I’m curious and perhaps someone knows something about it is how much EoN’s gets? Their profit is based mostly on the theatrical performance, I suppose.
This is the problem with Variety: they're a glorified Daily Mail type of publication half the time (ridiculous clickbait, poor research) but they're treated with the utmost seriousness for some reason, so whenever they publish something, it snowballs.
Indeed, their source here is almost certainly the MI6 article or one of the the clickbait pieces it birthed. As they say, a lie can get halfway round the world before the truth gets its boots on!
I think some people seem to they’re personal custodians of bonds legacy, rather than merely paying customers. Or take it personally that NTTD has some hearsay article written about it. Again. Who gives a shit. Not me. I’m just a fan. I’m more bothered that they killed James Bond
Who cares? It’s make believe.
Do you think it's strange that people in the NTTD box office thread are discussing an article about the financial prospects of NTTD? One written by the website hosting this very forum?
In fact Bond's worldwide box office is way more healthy than that of most of the other big budget movies released thus year.
But people will remember headlines like "Bond loses money!". Almost no one walks out of "Dune" and thinks "This is a financial disaster", when in reality it is.
Sorry I think my point went over your head.
I think it’s odd that people who are unconnected or unaffected with the financial outcome of the film are asking for an apology from mi6.
Dune has already broken even, and my rewatch last night in IMAX was a packed cinema. Every last seat sold out.
Do you go to the cinema every day? ;)
It is, but then the haters will claim NTTD loses $200m in spite of that achievement
