Meanwhile back at the Hollywood Studio....

"That 3rd Transformers film we have coming out in a while-what do you reckon we should do for a release strategy when it comes out?"
"Hmmm the first one took over $700 million worldwide in 2007 and was the biggest grossing non sequel of that year.It was the biggest grossing film in Malaysia ever.It and the Simpsons Movie combined for the biggest weekend in UK cinema history.In North America, the film had the highest per-screen and per-theater gross and the preview screenings set a record for Tuesday box office attendance and then it broke Spider-Man 2's record for the biggest July 4 gross.Its opening 7 days kinda rocked giving it the record for the biggest opening week for a non-sequel."
"Uh-huh not bad from a budget of $150 million-any thing else?"
"Those bastards at the academy only gave it 3 Academy Award nominations which helped the DVD sales.The DVDs sold 13.74 million copies, making the film the most popular DVD title of 2007. The DVD sold 8.3 million copies in its first week, making it the fastest-selling DVD of 2007 in North America, and it sold 190,000 copies on HD DVD, which was the biggest debut on the format.
In the first week, the two-disc edition of the Blu-ray was number one in sales compared to other films on the format. The Blu-ray version accounted for two-thirds of DVD sales that first week.
"OK enough already so they dragged a sequel out of us. I guess it bombed? Because we all know sequels never perform as well as the first film in a franchise"
"Revenge of the Fallen grossed $16 million on its midnight premiere-the most ever for a Wednesday midnight debut-The film proceeded to achieve the biggest Wednesday opening in history, bringing in $62 million in total receipts on its first day, additionally ranking it as the second-biggest opening day of all-time.The film grossed $108.9 million on its first weekend, making it the biggest weekend gross of 2009($200 million in its first five days)
Revenge of the Fallen remained #1 at the box office for two weeks straight making it the first film of 2009 to reach the $300 million mark domestically.
By July 20, 2009, less than a month after being released, Revenge of the Fallen had surpassed the all-time earnings of the 2007 Transformers movie. Also, on July 27, a month after its release, the movie reached $379.2 million in the US, which brings it into the top 10 highest-grossing movies ever in that country as of August 2009. Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is also the highest-grossing film of all time in China.
As of October 1, 2009, the film is reported to have grossed approximately $401,790,274 in the United States, along with an estimated $430,635,467 from foreign countries that totals up to approximately $832,425,741 worldwide.It is also the first movie to reach the $400 million mark in 2009-all this from a budget of $200 million-not to mention the toys and merchandise sales from both films reckoned to be worth around a $1billion worldwide.
We've pencilled a sequel in for July 2011"
"OK so having listened to all that I think our best bet to guarantee interest and commercial success would be to put it straight to DVD and give it away free on the cover of that months FHM"
Springer007 are you clinically braindead?
