Box Office Trends Of Friday The 13th 2009 To Blame For No Warner Bros. Sequel?
Only the fact that the film made so much money upfront and had a historic drop-off in Week 2 did cynics and detractors of the franchise pan the movie as a sort of creative failure. We still believe Warner Bros. saw the potential of the franchise, but the question has always lingered of why the company never went forward with a direct sequel to the 2009 film. Could it have been the steep drop in box office business?
Below is a table of information showing the weekly grosses of the latest Friday The 13th. By looking at this, perhaps fans might be able to see why a huge company would be wary of putting out a new movie with how the 2009 film tapered off into oblivion so quickly? Do you think this was THE determining factor in not getting a sequel fast tracked in 2010, or just one part of many reasons?
