Zendaya's homoerotic drama Challengers already flopped

Hollywood and mainstream media cope with the obvious commercial flop and damage control for Zendaya is ridiculous.
Zendaya's "star vehicle" needs $140 million to break-even with the budget of $55 million.

          Actor salaries are sky high now. Props and paying for sets and filming location rights isn't cheap anymore like it used to be even in the early 90s. Not to mention the dollar is worth nearly nothing now to the point where they can spend 1 mil on a few days of filming.

          It's not about "sex" as gays kissing and Zendaya looking dour do not qualify as sex for most of the audience. She does show a glimpse of ass here and there as revealed by the webms posted here but that's not enough to salvage the movie or make it a sexy experience.

          Immaculate did well enough: 21 mil on a 9 mil budget is much better than it seems bc Sydney was the producer, meaning: she paid herself. A similar thing happened with JLaw's No Hard Feelings.

            Hollywood went hard with promoting JLaw but she’s actually talented and beautiful to deserve it. Zendaya is neither but she’s the most promoted Hollywood actress ever. The Challengers marketing and current media mental gymnastics to portray her movie as anything other than flop prove it.

              True, peak JLaw was more objectively attractive and one of the things that harm Zendaya's image is a counter-reaction to the forced, excessive, incongruous hype around her.
              Had it been more natural ppl would go "she's actually mildly attractive" instead of "lol she's ugly why tf does the media pretend she's gorgeous".

                Its not that the movie costs more its that the actual tickets cost more so it takes more marketing to convince people to see a movie (or at least that's the logic, marketing is pretty unscientific).

                To put it in super simple numbers. When tickets cost $6 to see a movie and there was only TV as competition, audiences only needed to see 1 commercial to convince them to see the movie. Now tickets are $15 and there's more competition for attention, so audiences need to see 5 commercials to convince them, thus the marketers must buy more ads, thus marketing costs go up out of proportion to production costs.

          This is literally true though. The officially reported budgets of movies are usually just production because marketing is handled by the distribution company.

          The production entity (in this case 4 of them: MGM, Why Are You Acting? Inc, Frenesy Film Corporation, and Pascal Pictures) put up the money to purchase the script, rent the cameras, secure locations, hire crew, edit the movie, etc. Then they take the movie to a distribution company who purchases from those companies the rights to distribute the film (in this case, Amazon MGM- a different company under the same parent company- and Warner Bros outside of North America). Those are the people who put up the marketing budget, cut the trailers, schedule press events, etc. Distribution costs are generally not reported because they're usually in baroque contracts with other projects and all the money gets sloshed together. The general rule of thumb they taught us in business classes though was that marketing budget usually is about the same as 0.75x - 1.25x the production budget

      Breakeven factors in alternative profit decisions, meaning:
      -if a movie cost 50 mil plus 15 mil for marketing, to reach breakeven point it'd have to do as well as investing this money elsewhere would after accounting for movie theater's slice.
      50+15=65.
      65+65=130. That's what it'd have to make to reach a layman's version of breakeven, but in reality it's more like 140 at least because you could make a cool 5-10 mil out of 65 mil by investing it elsewhere.
      Also add to that loss the time/opportunity costs incurred. While months are spent making Challengers and theater slots are given it, the studio could have used both that time and the theaters for other, profitable movies. Take into account the fact that make a movie lucrative (say 20-100 mil profit) often requires a much smaller budget (see the budgets for Anyone But You, Sound of Freedom, Talk to Me, FNAF etc).

          Numbers can be made up, but the reality of profit-making cannot. People trolling about the literal meaning of breakeven probably grasp that-- I hope. Seriously trying to argue that movie X cost Y and made Y at the box office, hence it broke even would be seriously moronic, not least because no investment is made to merely break even.

              Here's a math question for you:
              You make a product that costs $100 to produce.
              You spend an additional $100 on marketing that product.
              You send the product to stores who sell each one for $2.
              After each sale, the store keeps $1 and sends you $1.
              How many dollars in sales do you need to break even?

              Answer: $400

              Until you understand this, you should stop trying to comment on financial matters in the movie industry.

                No, the budget for the product is reported as $100. The marketing budget of $100 is not reported to the public in any way. The take from the stores is not part of the budget. The reporting would say, "Anon's product has a budget of $100 and needs $400 to break even," because the break even point has to account for both the marketing and what the store takes.

                The cost is the production plus marketing, which is $200. You need $400 in sales because the store only gives you 50% of the sale value. The point of sale taking a cut of the price is not part of the cost of the product, you're a complete moron. The other thing is that the marketing budget isn't included in the production budget for movies, which is why in my hypothetical example you'd end up with articles that say, "Anon's product cost $100 to produce and will need $400 in sales to break even." It's a combination of some costs (marketing) being hidden and the full sale price not going to the producer. When you pay $10 for a movie ticket, that full $10 does not go back to the movie studio.

              Sorry to shatter your midwit comfort zone, you can stop "pretending" to be moronic now

              No, I am not. "To break even" means that you make exactly as much money as you spent. If you spent 55 million, then you break even the moment you make 55 million back. Only utterly mindbroken chuds dispute this.

              >"To break even" means that you make exactly as much money as you spent
              That's what economically illiterate types assume but when you break even you actually misspent 2 precious assets:
              -time (which is finite, you cannot get it back)
              -opportunity costs (you could have spent the money elsewhere)

                Movie costs the studio $500 to make.
                Theater records $500 in box office.
                The studio still needs $500 to break even
                ...but the theater is keeping some of that money, as you attested earlier.
                Therefore calculating if a film 'broke even' based on knowing the budget and the box office requires incorporating the theater's cut into the formula. Simple as.

      After paying the people to make the movie, you still have to let theaters take their cut along with advertising. I don't think this was advertised as much so it's just out there. So it's still more than the budget and less than the rule. Hollywood accounting is a thing.

      I’ve seen the trailer for this before practically every movie I’ve watched over the past two months. Saw it Friday, it’s just meh. Definitely not as smart as reviews pretend it is. The cinematography is good, the tennis matches are actually filmed in a very cool way and Josh O’Connor does deliver a charismatic performance, Zendaya is alright, the other dude is not good. I guess the goodness of the story hinges on whether you agree that tennis is a conversation/relationship (they’re aware their analogy is shit so they can’t decide which one it is exactly throughout the movie), which I don’t. Overall a very mid movie that has some fun moments. The only question that remains is whether those rave reviews exist because they’re paid for or because film critics today are genuinely this credulous

    This had a shitload of marketing. I'd be amazed if the break even point is under $200m. I've seen that fricking shot of the two twinks kissing her neck whilst she looks smug 1000 times. You don't give $10m+ to an actress in what should be a low budget drama by respected director, just to have it end up being a giant piece of self promotion by her. If you want to star in a prestige piece, you take the pay cut and then you get a shitload of offers for a big budget film afterwards.

    This is like Wildthings but you only ever showed Mat Dillon's face in the marketing, gave him $10m, and then had the threesome scene last just 20 seconds with everyone still remaining in their clothes.

      Is there such a thing as resting smug face?

      In every film she's in she gives off a "this is beneath me" attitude, in Dune this is comical as everyone around her completely out-acts her. She isn't even entertainingly bad, like Keanu in Dracula.

      Learn from history:
      >While being cross-examined at Ward's trial, Rice-Davies made a riposte which has since become famous. When James Burge, the defence counsel, pointed out that Lord Astor denied an affair or even having met her, she dispatched this swiftly with pert humour, "Well he would, wouldn't he?"[9] (often misquoted "Well he would say that, wouldn't he?").[10] By 1979, this phrase had entered the third edition of the Oxford Dictionary of Quotations, and is occasionally referred to with the abbreviation MRDA ("Mandy Rice-Davies applies").[11]
