poor value i thought

I'll eventually buy the Blu Ray but I'm annoyed there's no Region 1 DVD...yet. I I watch music videos on my laptop with headphones. I totally get why it's not out yet. I reckon Warner Bros lost money on the movie. Surely they paid Bruce a pretty penny for the rights and it- and I hate to say it- flopped at the box office. The overpriced Blu-Ray prolly helps them a little.

When things are neither promoted or distributed adequatly a loss is a very likely risk 

They could hire some C grade 1st year marketing student and they would see a marked improvement :angry:

I wonder if there was actually a loss at the box office. Is there any information on what the film cost to produce? Bruce owns the set, there are a lot of home movies, no special effects, no big-name actors to pay, a small filming unit, a production crew that works with Bruce all the time, a rented horse.

Either way, I believe the film was marketed and distributed as intended and the idea was probably always to profit more on the home video release.

am not sure about flopped, in the city where i live it was one showing only, and overpriced, you are never going to get a great success out of that are you

I think it's fair to say that they weren't expecting to compete with Star Wars.

But i would have absolutely gone to see WS and been happy to pay what ever plus popcorn etc

I gave up on star wars after Ja Ja Binks

I am quite confident that it was never meant to be a blockbuster at the box office... None of these concert movies to cinema are, unless maybe they are whoever the current pop sensation is.
