The 2014 combined chart shows a funny little detail: Hobbit's average price seems to be higher than e.g GotG's, probably via the extended... prices:

 

4 Guardians of the Galaxy 4,725,990 $87,713,591 Buy
5 The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug 4,481,814 $93,287,893 Buy

 

more units sold, but less earned. The Lego movie too seems to be rather expensive.. or GotG chep. What I do not think as I think the Disney releases are all not cheap

Wouldn't the hobbit numbers include extended editions to boost the price though?

 

That was, what I meant.

The average is high enough for them to be included. The Middle Earth releases do have a rather high number of extras....

 

Wondering about the Lego Movie's average too

Thank you

 

I am guessing that is, where we do not share a taste (again  ;) ) ...

 

 

IMDB gave this one, when typing in the title

Not a fan of comedy.... and neither of horror too. (but both genres are better than romance for me)

It's part of the Vacation series.  Vacation was the first one, the one you have there.  Then there was European Vacation and then came Christmas Vacation, which is the highest grossing of the series.

With premium cable, the likes of HBO, Starz, Showtime etc all have output deals with different studios whereas basic cable like FX or TNT bid for individual films or a package of films. Last year, TNT bought the basic cable rights to Marvel films, The Hunger Games franchise and Divergent series, as has been mentioned, the amount broadcasters pay for a film is around 10-12% with a cap of $200m so a broadcaster will at most pay around $20-24m.

Apes 2 has only sold less than 800k Blue Ray units, I expected more since the movie had very good WOM.

They released it the same day as Guardians I believe. That was just a dumb idea IMO
