The Success of the "Producer of Eragon" [CLOSED]

I would to add on how successful John Davis, the producer of the the so called awful Eragon movie. If so many think the movie bombed... think again. http://www.the-numbers.com/mov...tertainment.php.

Also, it seems he has had quite a successful career in making good selling films. With basic math, Davis Entertainment, the ones also involved in the Spyro movie, has spent 1.3 billion in budget, BUT, made 3.1 billion in the box office (and i guess dvd's too).

This equals to around $1.8 billion in revenue in the company's middle aged time line.

It seems Davis and his company know how to spend money to make money. Yes many might hate the movies too, but the numbers do not lie.

I also notice that most APC trailers come out within a ONE MONTH period, like the Garfield cartoons. I think the teasers are just made if they have time or if they want too.

And like what (Gwenio was it?) a forum member and I have said before, they spent the money to make the money and it's too late to pull back. Finish the job, release it, and hope it does well.

Basic Economics everyone. Plus, $300 million isn't bad for a "bad" (I thought it was more cheesy than bad smilie) movie based on a book.

Eragon was set to become one of the best sellers in theaters, but the success quickly went down hill as people were told that it was bad by those that had already seen it. Therefore the ability of the producer had nothing to do with the sales, rather the popularity of the books and the advertising done for the movie.

If they didn't make the acting and the movie feel so "cheesy" it might have been better.

lmao, nice find. Amazing how one movie by someone makes idiots like the people here go "OMFG IT SUUUUUX" when the movie isn't even out yet.

Yeah I agree, until a trailer or some other major update occurs there is no reason to judge. No matter how many times we say it, someone will say it still will suck. There's no proof for a reason why.

And that would be why you like the movie, for people that like the books the movie is a total let down. They left out most of the good parts/things needed for the story to make sense, and did not add much that was worth while.

Oh, so we're stupid because we didn't read the book before seeing a film adaptation? I didn't even know there was an Eragon book when I saw the movie.
