I don’t watch a whole lot of movies because it’s hard for me to sit very long; when I do watch an movie, it’s online…for free. However, I really enjoy the economic side of movie production and distribution. About 5-25 movies are released each month, less than 1/3 of them will gain an profit. Let us predict Power Rangers.
Trailer: Very generic, practically gives us the movie, under dog teenagers gain powers, beat up bad guys, and win.
Hype: Very high
Audience: major Power Rangers fans, kids, teens
Budget: 150 million
Movie Prediction: 200-250 million
For the movie to make an profit, it will need to make 300 million in the box office. For the movie to make an return, it will need to garner more than 300 million. I foresee the movie gaining about 200-250 million in the box office.
