But how much did they cost to make, market and distribute?
>>
>>92636999
How much did they spend making the movies though :^)
>>
>>92637029
shut the fuck up

bt how much they cost to make
>>
>>92636999
what is the difference between revenue and profits?

I am a retard and I cannot think

>earned
lol, this is getting sad at this point.
>>
>>92636999

Don't think of the movies /anon/, think of the merchandise.

Star Wars is similar to Transformers Movie most of the money comes from the merchandise that produced after and before the movie.
>>
>>92636999
what is this "oh no no no" meme
>>
>>92637085
Assuming each one's marketing and production is 500m, they've made almost 4b from a 1.5b budget.

they really fucked up this prospect with their nigger lead, should've put chinese lead instead desu
>>
>>92637144
disney is paying me too much for me to top meself
>>
>>92637132
>500m each
id say its closer to 1b for each. marketing on the films has been insane, and i wouldnt be surprised if it passed 1b total for each movie
>>
LEL EAT SHIT GEORGE YOU FAT NIGGERLOVING PIECE OF TRASH
>>
>>92637132

so they have made nothing
>>
>>92637132
Have you seen the insane rallies they've held?

The giant worldwide international marketing campaign is insane. I would assume more than 500m

>SJW journalist thinks xir can trick people who buy and sell stock not to put pressure on a publicly traded company to keep out politically charged trite by using basic obfuscation
And they wonder why Trump won

>>92637029
This. Plus the start up costs of bringing them in house.

Bet they're still 3 bil in the hole, minimum.

Nice math there, prequeltard.

A bald assertion isn't an argument. I've already refuted your representation based arguments. Give me something else.

paying a few million for good reviews is nothing if it helps getting out of that hole

They keep 60% of the domestic.

30% of overseas.

Not 100%.

>>92637324
ok fine, I'll fucking top myself

call the polis to ma hoose

thank you friend

>the studio gets all the money
So they own and operate (somehow for free) the theaters? Jesus, how do they achieve that?!
>>
>>92636999
Don't forget the money they made off other Disney films and marvel films. They made up their money already and then some
>>
>>92637425
Oh nevermind, I forgot about the popcorn mines.
>>
>>92637305

4 billions for lucasfilm, + 1 billions for each film marketing and production = 7 billion. approx 1 billion per filme profit = 4 billion in the hole.
>>
>mfw prequelnigger apologists don't realize how much they have made from merchandising alone makes them go well over what they paid for the shit

Fuck nu-Wars but fuck you fat neckbeard contrarian fedora tipping permavirgin Lucasshills harder. I hope Lucas dies tonight and it's painful and televised and his sheboon big lipped wife and all you cucks have to watch.
>>
>>92636999
Lucas got what, 4 billion? And half of that was in stocks, so he’s still laughing to the bank
>>
>>92637470
Annnddddd Solo will bomb and episode IX is going to make even less after this disaster because people feel fleeced for buying a ticket this time around only for Disney to tell them that it's time for all wh*te ma*es to die.

Also don't forget that this doesn't include the licensing money from services, the money from toys, the money from inevitable tv shows, the money from Jurassic park, the money from the Jurassic park sequel, the money from THEIR toys, AND the inevitable Indiana Jones movies.

>inb4 they reboot Indiana Jones with a black woman as the lead
>Has a deliberately effeminate white numale co-star
>Takes place in MODERN times where they have a fucking cellphone and other garbage

>>92637305
Why are you assuming he's a prequelfag?
Just look at these numbers objectively. Whether you like the sequel movies or not, you cannot deny that these movies are failing financially.
>>
>>92637470
lmao, try again
>>
>>92636999
We're have been through this. You need to deduct a third for theatres and then production and marketing costs, then add in all other crap like licensing for toys.
The big picture is not great because breaking barely even would mean it has been a bad investment.
They need a few more TFAs; they can't afford TLJ levels or worse.
>inb4 the long game.
Neither investors nor shareholder care about profits 20 years down the line.
>>
>>92637618

i was being generous with profit it's likely that the last jedi will not make 1 billions
>>
>>92637540
Apparently, "bombing" to /tv/ is having a box office of 1 billion.
>>
>>92637700
4 billion - 3 billion profit is not 4 billion
>>
Now look at the quality of those movies; flashy CGI to the hilt with zero character depth
Sounds familiar
The Disney Star Wars movies made that money because the cult grew in numbers, mainly through politics
The ratio of good to bad Star Wars movies is 1:3, it doesn't matter to me what kind of money they're making, they're mostly bad movies and the good ones were made between 30-40 years ago
The cult is real, it's an ATM
>>
Assuming .6 domestic, .3 for overseas (theatres share deducted), and 125 million for TV/streaming/disc sales.

TFA - 900 million in revenue, +125 million in TV
1025 million Revenue
-450 million cost

Profit 575 million

R1
571 +125 million in revenue
696 million in revenue, - 350 million in cost

346 million profit

TLJ
579 + 125 TV
704 - 450 million cost
254 million profit. (most likely will hit 300-325 profit.

Total profit - 1175 million (1.175 billion)
Plus licencing (lets say 400 million, recall sales do not equal licencing)

1.6 billion profit on a cost of 5.246 billion investment, or a 30% return.
>>
>>92637854
meant 1:2, whatever
>>
>>92637811

the rights to star wars cost 4 billion
>>
>>92637733
Their main money guy said Disney's conservative estimate was at least 30% bigger numbers than TFA. You still don't get what Mouse sees as bombing versus a success?
>>
>>92637884
A 30% return would be pretty sweet if the numbers weren't so high, though.
>>
>>92637944
Dude, lets try again, your simplistic view on these matters aside.

4 billion for the rights
3 billion to make and market
6 billion in net gain
>>
>>92637944
They still had to set up Lucasfilm in house, and the actors will be getting residuals since they didn't Jew the costs publicly.
>>
>>92638107

5 billion for the rights
3 billions to market
1.5 profit

wow they lost 6.5 billion. mouse on suicide watch.
>>
HAHAHAHAHAHA IT BELONGS TO THE HOUSE OF MOUSE FOREVER NOW
>>
>>92638081
A 30% return means you have 70% to go until you have made 0 profit. And that ignores inflation and opportunity costs. You can see how TLJ-levels turn recovering your investment into a snail-speed affair. What you want is TFA-speed.

It's cancer and anyone who posts it should be banned for five years

>>92638405
don't worry, the han solo film will save it
>>
>>92636999
congrats! Now to make up for the 52 billion dollars in the red to purchase Fox! LMAO!
>>
>>92637733
Avengers Age of Ultron made that and Disney thought it flopped.
