>>109395041>Think of it like this, It premiered around holiday time and did holiday movie numbers without holiday movie marketing.
It didn't, it did severely less than as you said The Grinch, and couldn't even match up to the Squeakwell.>Reasons why it's not the best selling movie ever
Or more successful than the "Failure" that is secret life of pets 2.>More than expected
So they expected less money from a Spider-Man property, an animated one at that, than their Hotel Translvania franchise? Really? You're telling me Sony, who made 700 million with Spider-Man at their very worst, and who's property just had massive success and brand recognition with Homecoming and Infinity War, then were absolutely sure that this movie wouldn't even top Smurfs. You're seriously under the impression that they were certain a shitty reboot of Grinch was going to crunch them to the curb and not have a drastic dropoff of more than half the budget of the live action version. When even Illumination is calling Pets 2 a flop despite it making more and costing less, this is what Sony expected out the gate.
I don't know the more sad scenario, this is true and Sony was so damn sure that nobody would care about miles that it wouldn't make any money and were shocked that it didn't outright flo.
Or alternatively, you're just sure they we're positive more people would want to see Scrat in space than Spider Man, but that this was still way better than what they were expecting and see no issues with that.>The only thing you twisted the knife in was your argument.
Well you sure showed me with your>Get woke and hey we almost did as good as Kung Fu Panda's... third movie. Which means we're not broke!
