BTW. You cannot really believe the figures that studios spit out on budgets. They will inflate or deflate a number to make a film seem profitable or not, depending on their agenda. Take for instance Shrek 2. There is no way in hell that film cost $70-$80 like they have reported. These studios are ve...

But the movie made a further $80 internationally. That's a conservative $30m or so profit back. So, going into video/TV/DVD/pay rights/syndication etc, the film is well in the black to start off with. I'm not trying to pick a fight with you. Just trying to point out some figures that have been over...

Like I said, I do not know what the budget was for the film or what money it made. My point is that if a movie captures $80 in BO, that is not $80 profit. The profit is more like $15 *before* the negative cost is deducted. So if the negative cost was $50, that means it needs to make $35 in other sal...

It made something like $80m in America alone, so that was the moeny back for making the film. Internationally, it did about the same if not more, so that was P&A covered and a bit of profit. Total DVD sales - not including the 2-disc that was put out around the world and will come to region 1 event...

Damn. By that logic, Pixar should of never made Toy Story 2. Face it, Pixar is just as guilty of trying to make a buck that everyone else is. This is a business. Making money is the objective. Maybe the artists don't see it that way, but I gurantee the management does- at every studio. Beloved Pixar...

Unless you were on the project or close to it, you simply cannot understand the unreasonable demands and suggestions made by executives. Could you tell us some of those demands? I'm just curious. All things you have probably heard before...Executives that know what makes a better story, a funnier l...

I think some of you may be seeing things differently than it really happened. Brad is honestly really liked by the executives at Disney. And because of that, Brad was offered the job a long time ago. Maybe as early as August. At the time, Brad was directing a live action/CG movie for Warner Brothers...

Couple of thoughts. 1) Flushed Away has been announced long before the Pixar rat movie. 2) Flushed Away is a CG film. Although it started out as stopmotion, it is now all CG
