Continuing from the last two weeks of HRE news…
A recent article by Christopher Rosen, from the Huffington Post, talks about the current direction of Universal, the price of mega-movies and the profit in sequels. “If you look at their (Universal’s) next two years, it is filled with sequels (10 in their 25 next pics) which should lead to terrific profits plus lower volatility. And they have event pictures and several brands such as ‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’ and ‘Wicked’ It’s an amazing run.”
Now, while Pacific Rim has been doing well at the box office, the major price tag attached to such mega-movies is becoming an issue for studios. Along that line, Guillermo del Toro has recently stated that he does not see Hellboy 3 actually happening as it would require some heavy end of the world destruction and that will call for mega bucks.
Well, Universal, now with Legendary, are looking to a future heavily based on sequels with a few original story lines … All that is happening with their current metamorphosis would indicate that it is a perfect time for certain “prequels” to be made.
With that being said… there are certain “things” that are being looked into… but that is a story for another day. Stay tuned, and keep showing The Prince Nuada love!!
