Well I heard it's fantastic. Currently 100% on the tomatometer. I may need to head to out my nearest theater come August 10th to see it to believe it. Of course, the experience wouldn't be complete without some popcorn and candy I nabbed with my membership card while my buddies and I sit together in the IMAX 3D showing at midnight for the Ultimate Thrill.I feel like we are unwittingly becoming the Annabelle 2 viral marketing thread.
Is The Conjuring/Annabelle franchise the highest rated horror franchise? I think the only rough movie they had was the first Annabelle. So now it would be 3/4 films are good?
Has it opened there yet?
Because who fuckin' knows with China, really.
The dolls with the working eyelids always skeeved me out.
With a good budding horror director. That's how they turned Annabelle around.
What gets me even more than creepy clowns and dolls are those fucking monkeys with the cymbals - from Monkey Shines. I'm playing Fallout 4 and the bastards at Bethesda put them everywhere.
I'm scared of clowns and these fuckers thanks to Stephen King. Dude really put a dent in my psyche. (Which is a compliment, of course.)
Remember last year when there was pretty much a crisis concerning clowns attacking people all over the US? I don't remember if they ever caught the people behind it.
They weren't attacking, just hanging out freaking kids out. We had one in the area just hanging out in the woods waving at people now and then. Mysterious creepy clown got overplayed quickly, though in hindsight it put creepy clown to the fore just in time for IT to show up.
Jordan Peeles racism-horror masterpiece Get Out has had the best return on investment of any film of 2017 a spectacular 630 percent.
Deep into summer, only one other film this year has come close to that kind of return and its from Blumhouse, the same production company that delivered Get Out. M. Night Shyamalans Split had a 610 percent ROI.
TheWrap calculated an estimate for the combined production budget and marketing costs for the top 25 grossing films this year so far, and Blumhouse founder and CEO Jason Blums strategy of taking creative risks within tight budgets is paying off.
Peele was given a $4.5 million budget to work with on Get Out, while M. Night Shyamalan had $9 million to make Split. Combined with an estimated $30 million marketing budget, that gives Get Out an ROI percentage of 630 percent with its worldwide gross of $252 million, and Split an ROI of 610 percent on a global haul of $277 million.
Disneys Beauty and the Beast remake, which remains the highest grossing film of the year so far with $1.26 billion worldwide, had a lower ROI than Get Out or Split because of its $160 million budget and much more extensive global marketing campaign. Its ROI is well over 400 percent, but doesnt approach that of the two Blumhouse films.
Overall, summer box office is down from 2016, despite big studio successes including Despicable Me 3, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and Wonder Woman.
I don't think that's how RoI works. This doesn't take in account the theaters cut of the gross for example. And most profitable should mean the movie that made the most profit anyway.
That's a lot. Get Out with 630% and Split with 610%.
Maybe later.Lol What take a break from GAF bro
I mean don't horror films always make a ton of money?
