Idiocracy brings in far less at the box office than the film's budget cost: Do movie studios need to scale back their budgets for many films?

Idiocracy brings in far less at the box office than the film's budget cost: Do movie studios need to scale back their budgets for many films?
  • Yes, they do.

    In order to save the movie industry it would be much better for them to focus on smaller budget films that are focused on storytelling rather than big budget blockbusters, that have been a flop and not as big of a hit as they were in the past. It could help them survive.

  • Studios Have Too Much Money

    There have been lots of instances lately where movies that are coming out in theaters don't do as well as expected. Studios will make almost no money if they don't get back at least how much they put into it because then there isn't any profit and they're losing money just because they couldn't scale back on the expenditures and costs it takes to make movies.

  • Yes, movie studios should scale back budgets for many films.

    Many Hollywood films bring in far less at the box office than what it costs to produce them. The movie Idiocracy only brought in a fraction of what was budgeted to make the film. Many audiences do not always appreciate the expensive special effects and high production costs that it takes to make a movie. Therefore, movie studios should learn to do more with less money in order to produce profitable films.

  • No, film revenues go beyond the box office

    Today, box office revenues are only a portion of the revenues that film's receive. With home theaters and video streaming, film revenues exceed long past their film debuts. Film budgets should be based on what will ultimately make the best movie and if producers want to focus on longer returns on investment than let them.
