The Fox Thread

Recommended Posts

At the end of 2010 FOX was the joke of the town, not a single 100m grosser and their franchises were dwindling fast. They have managed a strong turn around in the last year and a half.They started 2011 off with RIO grossing a 484m WW total on a 90m budget, hugely successful especially in south america.Then they managed against all odds to reinvigorate the X men franchise despite many doubts, although not hugely successful financially it did gross a solid 353m on a 160m inflated budget due to the project being fast tracked, the sequel is in good shape.They closed the summer with their biggest success Apes with 484m on a 93m budget, great WOM propelled the film and witht he sequel announced and due for release in 2014 we can expect huge grosses there.Unbelievable turn around for a studio that was down and out despite the success of Avatar. They managed to produce three great films, market them and then produce franchise potential from all three.Prometheus is their 1st summer release of 2012 and again they have managed to do what a studio aspires to do, they've taken a risk and look to be rewarded for it with a solid 400-500m gross on a 130m budget.
