The main difference is Mad Max got really popular the week after it came out, it wasn't hyped it was word of mouth, and then later was a world wide success too. Ghostbusters was insanely hyped with as much money spent to market the movie as to make it(where mad max had a third of that on marketing even though a comparable budget) and so would take even more money to be profitable and it doesnt look like it will have any upswing to sales, My final guess at total worldwide revenue would be 150-200 million which will mean they lost around 100 million on it.

I'm not claiming it's set the world on fire, I still think the chances it will flop at the box office alone are likely; but reviewing the stats, I'd expect it to break even by October.

One could argue the marketing campaign was so costly to combat the negative press that this was a hard attempt to take a classic and turn it into a socially-conscious feminist glory-film. Which in all fairness, reboots are already hard enough.
Anyway, you make a convincing argument, but I'll be surprised if you're right, and I'll be sure to come back to this comment; I don't know so much about the film industry, I was just reading the stats.

Negetive press caused when Sony Doubled down on the directors misandry. If they hadn't backed him and realized that pissedd off every single democraophic that even wanted the movie they wouldnt had to spend money on that, nor the mass of money on changing to new commercials to "sell to the male demographic" later.

Actually, the film has controversy attached to it from the start. It received instant criticism as soon as it was announced that there was going to be an all-female reboot.

If Ghostbusters makes over 20 million(domestic) this weekend it has a chance to maybe make as much as mad max but that will still be a significantly lower profit. since they spent the extra 100 Million on marketing(for whatever reason they still spent it)

You're confusing the terms.

Grossing is what you make after reaching the amount it took to make the movie. In short, it's profits.

Mad Max grossed meaning it made back it's money, and then made more. Ghostbusters didn't gross at all. It lost around $70 million dollars.

Actually I think the anon below was right, that's net income not gross.
Sorry for the confusion, but terminology aside, the fact is Mad Max didn't make it's money back within the first week, it took approximately 2 months. This film has only been out a week or so, people calling it a 'box office flop' are REALLY jumping the gun.
It looks like it's could be on track to make it's money back at the box office alone, which granted isn't great, but it's also not terrible.

People just want this film to fail so bad, and I can relate, but funnyjunk are really trying too hard, hence the reason I got 14 thumbs down and only a couple replies challenging my original statement - people don't know what they're fucking talking about, it's pretty pathetic.

But thanks for taking the figures and facts stated into account and taking time to write such an insightful comment back.

I don't dispute those figures.
But the marketing and distribution costs of Mad Max: Fury Road were approximately $50m, and after only 6 days, that was it's international box office gross.

Ghostbusters has only been released for 6 days and has made only 1.7% less than Mad Max in that time - and at the end of the day, Mad Max was highly successful financially.

Bad publicity is still publicity.

Yeah, but bad publicity hinders your chances of becoming president.
#147 - surelynotanon (07/24/2016) [-]
It generates interest, a lot of people are willing to look past silly things like this, and while looking into Trump, might actually decide to support him.

Strange, but it works more often than you'd expect.

I suppose so - but I still can't but feel like that this hinders more than it helps his chances, so if it was purposely done, then I don't see the advantages being worth the high-risk.
