Studio Scorecard (January 2015)

Studio Scorecard- January2015


Notes-  Highlighted films are the ones poor received by critics/fans in general.

Flops- I count a flop as a movie that did not  earn even half its money back.

BB- Blockbuster

Major Hit- Film that cost less than 90 million to make, but earns 150+

Miss- A film that barely makes its money back or not even.

Studio BB Major Hit

Keep in mind that few truly original films exist today. However, if a film does attempt to be different than movies in a similar scenario. I give that credit.
