Filming starts next year, so expect a delay within the next couple of weeks.


Denzel's actually doing a sequel? Script's gotta be good, considering he's made it clear in interviews in the past that he's not a fan of doing sequels, and has turned down offers to do sequels to some of his films.

The last one wasn't that successful. Not sure why this is being made. Maybe they will give it an overseas 3Dcrelease

Total Lifetime Grosses
Domestic:  $101,530,738    52.8%
Foreign:  $90,800,000    47.2%

= Worldwide:  $192,330,738


It was still quite successful it tripled is small (for a Denzel movie) 63m net budget with a 79 to 85 million world theatrical release cost.


At 190 million WW (100dbo/90intl) Sony expected to do 31.6m in profit (13.4% ROI), their partners 9.6 million in profit and the above the line people 15.4 million in bonus (that a nice 55 million in gross profit shared around on a 63 million movie....).


From the studio point of view that movie break even point was estimated at

Domestic:  $59,200,000   
Foreign:  $59,200,000   

= Worldwide:  $118,400,00


The Return break point/good use of money estimated needed box office was at around 2.6x the budget

Domestic:  $82,000,000   
Foreign:  $82,000,000   

= Worldwide:  $164,000,00



And it was greenlight with a 200m ww potential in mind.


If they can get half the budget co-financed like on the first (Denzel Washington usually achieve to do that, he is predictable like a good clock like almost no one ever was) on a 75m or less net production, it is really not a big risk.
