It didn't make back what it cost to produce. A movie has to gross approximately twice its production + advertising budget to break even. Whatever the film's merits, it is not yet profitable. Perhaps this legal blackmail will push HURT LOCKER into the black.

Sorry, I meant sales, it wasn't an overwhelming success on that front either. Actually they never break even according to their "accountants". That is why some actors take a small % of the gross instead of "profit" or lack there of .

That movie was a joke. Avatar should have won best picture. BP is about ground breaking filmmaking and HL was just another political piece of dog poop. While Avatar's story was mediocre there is no doubt that it was a revolution in filmmaking.

It was the biggest politically induced Oscar injustice since Shakespeare in Love beat Saving Private Ryan. Shakespeare in what? Exactly.

It did $45M box office plus whatever it does on DVD, PPV, pay TV and broadcast.

It made all the money back for production plus marketing by a mile. It was still a piece of shit, but a piece of shit that made money.

Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences should strip the producers of the Hurt Locker for Best Picture. This movie does not worth seeing, Let along the .torrent file.
