Suppose it cost $120 and $80 to advertize. LGF net half the box office or $350 million. My math gives me $350 - $200 = $150. With about 135 million shares, Breaking Dawn P2 must contribute at least 50 - 90 cents EPS, otherwise where does the money go?
Was most or all of the BD2 cost included in the Summit purchase price? Also, I don't believe LGF receives a 50/50 split for foreign box office. BD2 will be very profitable, especially when the 5-movie DVD sets come out!
