why did the prequels fluctuate so much in $? i mean, they all did fantastic to their budgets, and based on how utterly brilliant the films look, i was surprised the budgets were as low as they were. i expected like something in the 200 million range per film! i guess blue screen saves lots of $! but the films arent consistent money wise.... why? they all made over 300 million domestically, which prove that star wars is a force to be reckoned with in the U.S but worldwide they tip around. TPM made $924,317,558 (surprised it didn't make 1 billion) AOTC made $649,398,328 (what a drop ) ROTS made $848,998,815 (why didn't outgross TPM?) i feel like the star wars films have made a very conservative amount of $ compared to all these new films! Its as if GL missed the super duper jackpot by 3 years or something! Left and right these films keep making 1 billion dollars, two pirates of the Caribbean films, the third transformers film, Harry potter and the deathly hallows part 2.....why are they making so much more? why did AOTC drop off so much? I honestly expected ROTS to blow away TPM, but it didn't. basically when you look at all these really big blockbusters lately, when they hit it big, they REALLY hit it big... why has star wars been been in the middle?
