Title: 62 Million worldwide!
Post by: generalcobra on June 15, 2008, 11:12:51 PM
Very good it exceeded all expectations and instead of a silly 18 million opening it got a 30 million opening!

30 million more domestically and it will be a true financial success.

Once it reaches 100 million domestically it will be his come back not critically but financially

Rulm, I am not so sure about this talk of bad word-of-mouth. Wasn't the advance buzz supposed to be really bad, with the phantom 'tracking/awareness' numbers being the pits ? Yet the movie did well in its opening weekend. Which proved these metrics to be quite useless in this context.

I think our perceptions about audience reactions are learned from the boards on the internet which represent a miniscule and insignificant portion (me included) of the movie-going public.

One thing I have been wondering, though, is what general audiences thought of the movie. Not us fans, not the uber-haters, but ordinary "hey this looks interesting" moviegoers.  Because ultimately, I have always felt that word of mouth is stronger than any critic's review.  And what those people think will most likely influence how this movie is going to do in the following weeks.

On a side note, according to the front page, Night got an 8 figure salary for this movie?  Damn!  Fox must have had a lot of faith in him and the script.

The word of mouth is spreading. Lot of people have mixed reaction in our work. They are thinking what if it makes people to commit suicide too, just like PASSION made lot of people turn to christianity.

By the way, how is THE HAPPENING doing now?

I was just wondering: what are the odds that both Fox and UTV will get all their money back?  I mean, yeah the production budget was around 60 mil, but what about marketing and all that?  What are the chances that this film will get them their money back and also turn a profit.  I'm not too sure how the "biz" works.
Title: Re: 62 Million worldwide!
Post by: Dr Malcolm Crowe on June 17, 2008, 11:58:38 PM
In most cases of a film this size, the marketing and distribution budgets never exceed the production budget. The Village had a marketing budget estimated around $40 million, so to be a bit liberal - let's say The Happening cost $57 million to produce and $50 million to market and distribute. That means for Fox and UTV to break even, they need a worldwide take of $107 million - and given all current indicators, The Happening should reach that point in the next week or two.

Then you have DVD sales, DVD rentals, and TV rights. Of course there will be some new costs involved with some of that stuff, but very minimal compared to the money that stuff will bring in. I think we can ballpark rental gross for The Happening in the $35 million range, with DVD sales matching. Then TV rights could be sold anywhere from $5 million to $12 million maybe.

20th Century Fox, UTV Motion Pictures, and Shyamalan will be seeing profit on this, have no doubt.  ;)

That makes it $81.7 million worldwide - with the old foreign figures. We will have official up-to-date worldwide figures early next week.
Title: Re: 62 Million worldwide!
Post by: joecartoon131 on June 22, 2008, 01:32:11 PM
Domestic:  $50,267,000    61.5%
+ Foreign:  $31,513,498    38.5%

-------------------------------------
 
= Worldwide:  $81,780,498

Figures are from www.boxofficemojo.com and are as of Sunday, June 22, 2008 (today)

The Happening is also the 3rd highest grossing R-rated film of 2008 (it just beat out The Strangers, and ahead of it are Forgetting Sarah Marshall, and Sex and the City)

I saw the film for the second time last night, and the theater was half to three-fourths full. I think the film has done very well for being R-rated (restricting much of Night's previous targetted audience to 17 and over). I read where many aren't happy with the film, but I think that's because people have expectations from Night to continue what he does from one film to the next. Yes, this time his pacing was different - I think he's allowed to try new things, and he does. He wanted to do a "90-minute paranoia movie" and he did just that - and a great one!

The first time I saw it I wished he had kept that green was the color of love (regarding the mood ring), but now I understand why he removed it. First, it would have been too much - people would have rolled their eyes at it no matter how fitting it was for the situation and the characters. Second, the idea that neither Elliot nor Alma could remember meant that they had been emotionally apart for quite a while (meaning that their marital problems existed long before the events of the film). Night made the choices he did so that the film would be fast paced - that's what he wanted. He still made room for character moments - Julian's anquish while handing Jess over to Elliot and Alma is one of the better examples of that in the film. Plus, the situation wasn't slow in building - like Signs. The threat happened more and more, meaning things had to move faster.

It's probably around the $130 million mark that Fox and UTV start seeing money. Nobody knows for sure.

According to Shyamalan himself (in interviews on the web), Shyamalan has been offered to make more films than ever before after Lady was released. As he puts it himself, in response to a question asking whether The Happening is a make-or-break film for him, (I?m paraphrasing) "lol that?s pure fiction, no matter how The Happening is being received, I?m going to make another movie, and another one, and another one".

Shyamalan is here to stay. :)

His confidence was probably related to the three Last Airbender movies. I don't think we should mis-construe his comments to imply funding for movies that he will write and direct with original material.
Title: Re: 62 Million worldwide!
Post by: Dr Malcolm Crowe on June 23, 2008, 12:07:29 PM
Actually, the offers he has received are not related to the Avatar movies. While they may not be original source material by Night, they are movies they wish for him to write and direct.

So really - his career as a writer and director is not in jeopardy what-so-ever.

UPDATE: The Happening Worldwide figures are in.... $107.3 million so far!!!

Speaking of which. DVD-rentals and sales will probably pull in an extra $ 50-60 mill if not more.

It?s ?almost? official, dare I say, The Happening is a success money-wise, and will eventually also become a success among critics.

I agree on that one. Critics will realize that it was intentionally made like its made and they will learn that its a smart movie.

Post by: joecartoon131 on June 25, 2008, 08:35:20 PM
The totals I put down were direct from Box Office Mojo (www.boxofficemojo.com).

The amounts could be a little off - I don't work for the site - but as for The Happening being the second highest grossing R-rated film this year, this is how the site has its list for "2008 Yearly Box Office for R-rated films"...

1. Sex and the City  $134,385,474 
2. Forgetting Sarah Marshall  $62,546,460
3. The Happening  $53,196,583

These figures above are ranked by domestic totals only. By clicking on Forgetting Sarah Marshall you'll see it grossed a total of $91,314,639 worldwide. Currently The Happening (as I mentioned before) stands at $113,290,198 worldwide. In terms of worldwide figures, The Happening is number 2 for the year, for R-rated films, so far.

The guy who wrote the article stated, he can't stand "Marky Mark" in (The Happening) but fell in love with Marky Mark all over again after "The Big Hit" I didn't get it, is he referring "The BiG Hit to "The Departed" or "The Happening"

Great, yea, I think it's a hit, don't see why it isn't one.  It's a hit.  Don't worry Dr Malcom Crowe, I'm not holding my breath.  Is there any website where you can find out DVD sales.  How can any one say Night isn't a succesful director, just look at those numbers, they're great.  And they'll only get higher, especially with Avatar.

Wow, so it's doing well. Shyamalan really is going to see profit, even with the reviews. I just saw this a week or two ago, so it was a while after it came out, but I didnt read a review beforehand, and considering it was like three weeks after it was released, the theatre was pretty packed, and I guess either theres a lot of fans who keep watching it, or people are going to check it out, despite the reviews, but no matter what, worldwide people are probably thinking different things, so it looks like Shyamalan will get good profits.

Yeah, I know, I was thinking the same thing.  The Happening though did well, but it's done, it won't make very much more.  It'll be lucky to break 150 million.  Still, not a bad take.  The Dark Knight is doing insanely well, it's already broken multiple records, and is on it's way to breaking more.  Some people are starting to compare it to Titanic, but it's still got a long way to go to get that far.

I cant help but think that the movie has already grossed over the $150 mil mark.  The foreign B.O. has yet to be updated in a while, and I think it just recently released in Japan. So it probably has surpassed the 150 mark. I base this on almost nothing, though.

Quote
On the solo-market front, 20th Century Fox International opened director M. Night Shyamalan's "The Happening" in the No. 3 Japan spot with an estimated $2.8 million from 310 screens, pushing the thriller's overall overseas cume to $87.8 million.

So then....the numbers again are.....
Total US Gross    $63,818,579

Worldwide Gross    $151, 618, 579

Awesome news. I think The Happening is certifiably a 'profitable' film now. There are a lot of different ways things get cut up in Hollywood, and $154 million dollars could actually not be enough for a film with a production budget of $57 million. When you figure in marketing, and distribution costs -- not to mention the portion of the box-office 'gross' that the actual theaters make, $154 million dollars seems like just enough.

When the DVD comes out, the money is going to come flying in.  ;D

The $57 million is for the production budget alone, no marketing or distribution. I know it seems like a stretch, but things add up pretty quick.

Remember, you're not just paying the extras, you are often feeding them 2 or 3 times a day. As for the crew, a lot of the crew members are making more than $100 a day.

Somewhere online is the leaked budget for The Village ($70 million) and you can see how money is burned up pretty quick.

Honestly, I'm shocked beyond belief. How the hell did this film make so much money!!!??? LOL!!! Most people don't seem to really like it, to say the least, and word of mouth isn't going it's way. Man, how the universe works, eh? Lol.

I'm a member of a few other director forums and they all dog the crap out of this movie.  It made that much money on his name alone, but I don't think it made money on the movie it self after it came out (Word of mouth-second watchers.)  The movie wasn't his best, but it didn't suck.  It wasn't as scary as I would have liked to have been, but it had it's moments.  I will bye the DVD, that's for sure.  It's going to take me more than once to get this movie.  I think it's one of his deepest movies yet and I'm sort of glad that I didn't get everything in it.  When I get the DVD I'm going to watch the hell out of it and pick it apart.

Still nice. The movie is one of a kind to me. A 'b' movie. Old School type horror which doesn't make sense, but still have a powerful message. I love how M.Night dares to be different in such a competitive industry and lots of critics against him. The guy still makes what he wants and believes in.

The HAPPENING to me, one of his unforgettable classics. I can cherish the story and the movie the rest of my life. I will make my kids sit and watch his movies one day. 'Do you homework buddy'  :-) .

That's really cool, I wouldn't consider it a hit, just a very succesful movie.  Remember, it only cost 30 million.  I was reading on boxofficemojo that We Own The Night was considered a succes because it only cost about 12 million to make, and then made 30 million in the United States.  So people definately can't call The Happening a flop.

Wait a mintue, The Happening cost more than $30 million - practically double that. And that is just the production budget. This has been discussed before.

Yeah....but i'm sure that this movie is also grow on people in time.  Like Lady in the Water......most people who have seen it are appreciating it a lot more now than when it came out.

This movie will not grow on people.

The Village grew on people because it was good. People just different expectations of it.
The Happening is just bad.

Post by: Rohan on May 15, 2009, 08:43:51 PM
The Happening is not bad at all. It is just what people's mind expects and does not turn out to be whatever they thought about it. Not really Shyamalan's fault.

I know enough not to go into a shyamalan movie with any preconceived notions, and I saw the movie twice. It had some good elements under the surface, but on the surface I have to agree it was not put together well.
