The production cost was $165 million and estimated marketing costs were $60 million. The worldwide total gross as of today is estimated at $106 million. They may have a tough time breaking even. By contrast, The Incredibles cost $90 million plus $60 million marketing and have a gross of $285 million after 5 weeks (1 week more than Polar Express).

They both will make more money on DVD next Christmas :thumbsup:
In Fact most films make more money per sale per DVD than per sale of the move theater ticket anyway. Now if a film is poor at the box office and DVD sales are poor then they are in deep trouble :cry:
