The Adventures Of Pluto Nash Cost Warner Bros. $112 Million

The Adventures Of Pluto Nash Cost Warner Bros. $112 Million, It’s no secret that Eddie Murphy has been attached to several major flops in the past few years. The Adventures of Pluto Nash is one such venture. Made back in 2002, the movie cost about $112 million to make and grossed only $135,000 on opening weekend.

There are a few different estimates as to how much it costs to make the “average” Hollywood movie these days. Somewhere between $90-139 million. Remember, this is for a major studio picture– but not necessarily a superhero/Avatar type.

So, it’s no surprise that anything that doesn’t break $150 million in the box office is considered a “flop”. More specifically defined, a “flop” is a movie that doesn’t earn as much as it cost to make.

How does the “flop” affect the studio? Well, even if it’s a seemingly bad situation, most studios end up being ok in the end. According to Zack Mandell from Yahoo:

“Even financial losses are quickly recouped. Revenue from syndication, DVD releases, foreign releases and releases of films for download is combined with tax breaks, accounting techniques and other financial adjustments to minimize the loss to the studio.”
