Eh even if it's not the most profitable movie, it's box office success is still incredible. A Rated R movie NOT being released in mainland China that's most likely going to reach $1 billion. Amazing.

so the contention is the usage of the word profit? we all know what is being discussed if you read the article. i find it hard to believe this is just a case of having to educate folks on the word profit.

The entire article is based off a false premise. Mendleson is a well known clickbait farm that is mocked in the box office threads here for a reason.

Endgame is one for example that was far more profitable.

Scott Mendleson isn't a source of anything.
You clearly aren't reading the article.

The amount of money it cost to make endgame very likely means it was not as profitable. Profit= revenue-cost. Endgame mad a ton of revenue but it also cost a fuck ton to make. Whereas Joker was incredibly cheap and is selling like a major marvel movie.

Reading the word "profit" so many times in this thread the word has lost all meaning.

By the metric of revenue-cost there are a ton of movies ahead of Joker, not just Endgame.


Also Endgame didn't cost a BILLION dollars to make. So yes, Endgame is undoubtedly more profitable.

He's doing revenue ÷ budget which isn't profit

Source is using some loose interpretation of "profit".

Also, locked at OP's request.
