This is a sub-selection from Hurt what?

Re: Hurt what?

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 .

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.
