It's not as ridiculous as saying a concept that worked 5 years ago wouldn't work now :lol:

Again, if they could still make money, we would see more of them. Just because one did doesn't mean they all can.

That movie was incredibly good

but it didn't make a lot of money

another case where it made back it's production budget but probably did not turn a budget.

$53M domestically :smt102

I mean, it made more than its budget, but if we follow the accepted rule of double the budget to make a profit... it came up short.

But budget aside.. that's not exactly setting the world on fire. True Grit was a huge success, and people actually cared.

Hey I agree, my first post in this thread was that a cowboy movie in no way should ever cost 200+ million dollars to make.

You're right... I can't wait for the Zorro and Lone Ranger sequels and Bonanza The Movie in the coming years. I'm sure they'll set the world on fire, Hab.

After the second pirates movie Johnny just doesn't have the same sway as he used to. And making terrible movie after terrible movie it really doesn't build his box office record. Looking over his resume on rottentomatoes, yeah bad movie after bad movie. It's not a surprise that 70 year olds didn't flock to see a movie based on their child hood hero.

Not only do cowboy movies not sell, but this could be the death of them for about a decade.
