That terrible film cost $150 million to make, and grossed $200 million at the box office. As long as the bad movies make money, there will be more of them unfortunately.
Master and Commander, cost $150 million to make and cost another $30 million in marketing promotion, and it grossed only $93 million. I wish we could see a sequel to it but I wouldn't "count" on it. I had to check the net twice to believe these numbers...
Lastly, The Hunt for Red October: Budget $30 (in 1990 dollars), and grossed: $200,512,643 worldwide. I guess that's why there were a few more Tom Clancy novel sequels. Too bad they never made Red Storm Rising... though that would be tough to make on any budget.
I liked Master and Commander, but I was disappointed that the final battle was so short. The special effects were great, but ... why so short?
