follow-up, even though it didn’t blow the box office away when it was released this spring. Dungeons & Dracns: Honor Among Thieves failed to reach $100 million at North American box offices, grossing only $93 million. With an additional $115 millions overseas, its total international earnings reached over $200 million. Brian Robbins, Paramount’s studios boss, told THR they could do a sequel even though it would lose money. We’ve got figure out a cheaper way to make it,” Robbins said in a lengthy interview that touched on some of obstacles the studio has had to overcome when setting up tentpole films in the post COVID era. While Top Gun: Maverick was a mega-hit, Babylon was a colossal flop. Robbins, a former actor who began his career on the TV show Head Of The Class, before becoming a mogul, does not address the box office performance of Mission Impossible. But, he does admit
Transformers: Rise of the Beasts‘ $427 million worldwide gross is “not great, but good,” although one imagines a studio like WB would kill to have had The Flash gross as much. Robbins and company seem keen to bring the GI Joe‘s into the Transformers big-screen universe (as teased in the film), so that franchise seems likely to go on. The movie Dungeons and Dragons has received a lot of praise from critics and audiences, but it is unlikely to be continued, as the budget was reported at $150 million. It’s possible that the property will find a new life on television, as the studio has recently approved a series to air on Paramount Plus. Comment below.
