It seems that lackluster box office returns won't spell the untimely theatrical demise for one superhero. At least not while the studio executives continue to believe in it. That seems to be the story coming out of this weekend with Warner Bros. Pictures chief Dan Fellman telling media outlets that they believe in the Green Lantern and will pursue a sequel. So says the Hollywood Reporter who suggest the studio may be “somewhat disappointed” after two weekends at the box office but is already preparing a follow-up with the Ryan Reynolds-led franchise.
With a $200 million budget---not including a very heavy marketing campaign---sources say the studio continues to have confidence in the recent comic adaptation which has pulled in only $89 million after 10 days of release. You can check out the weekend box office numbers here.
Green Lantern dropped a heavy 66% over its sophomore frame and it has some comic competition on the very near horizon, with Transformers: Dark of the Moon arriving in theaters across the globe on Tuesday night.
