"Say what you want about the politics,prejudice or misogyny in Tarantinos scripts and his persona,but we can all agree that his movies are a great showcase for actors."-Doug

"I think Tarantino only should retire when he gives us 10 masterpieces."-Geor

"The deterioration of Tarantino's filmography can be directly linked to Sally Menke's death.Terrible loss to the film community there."-Ian

Article Excerpt:

by Séan McGovern

If 2017 is showing any consistency in audience tastes over the last few years it's that no amount of star power,budget or marketing gimmicks can force audiences to buy tickets,with news that theUS Memorial Weekend was the lowest grossing since 1999.I've been told variances of the rule that for every production budget on a bockbuster,you can expect the marketing budget to be half if not equal to that - meaning that managing to break even is still a loss.

The year is noticeable once again for some high profile box office casualties -King Arthur,Ghost in the Shell,Power Rangers,Baywatch,possiblyAlien: Covenantand the latestPirates of the Caribbean,which regardless of its #1 spot at the Box Office has a budget of $230m (!) to recoup and turn into profit.

There is plenty of speculation that the way we watch films is contributing to the losses,but how to explainStar Wars,Guardians of the Galaxyand theMarvel Universe-huge financial successes that tick many of the same boxes as the recent failures? If we like to believe that audiences are more selective or that we truly consider the reviews,then why do theTransformersfilms keep getting made?(seriously please someone explain)

Full figures (and reader speculation welcome) after the jump...
