Since Lionsgate heist thriller Now You See Me is surprisingly profitable, the studio will try to pull off the same trick with a sequel, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The movie has made over $115 million domestically and $117 million overseas. When it opens in China, Australia and Japan, Lionsgate is projecting the overseas box office to exceed $150 million.
collider.com – One of the biggest box office surprises of 2013 thus far has been director Louis Leterrier’s magician heist pic Now You See Me. The $75 million film went on to gross $115.6 million domestically, and it’s international total now stands at $119.3. When you consider that some major studio tentpoles (ahem The Lone Ranger) have failed to cross the $100 million mark stateside, that is an incredibly impressive performance; obviously this means it’s time to make a sequel. 17 weeks 17 hours ago via jackiechan
