    Well, Box Office Mojo says the budget was $84.5M: https://www.boxofficemojo.com/release/rl3640886785/
    $84m doesn't cover Marketing costs, which for a franchise-starter hopeful is probably somewhere in the $20-$30 million region. Also the Studios only get back half of what a film makes in domestic theaters, the other half goes to the theaters/distributors. In overseas the studio typically only gets around %30 of the cut. So yeah, $300 million to break even sounds about right.

    Also, I'm catching this tonight with my girl so I'll post my thoughts in here tomorrow. Going in with low expectations, hopefully I come out liking it!

    I don’t care either way; I have no dog in this race. But I can understand why people would be calling it a flop.
    I don't know if anyone else listens to the /filmcast podcast, but they made a good point about this movie. In that Ford v Ferrari had a similar budget, similar amount of market, and a similar opening weekend, but was widely considered a success. So what the real false narritive here, that Ford v Ferrari was a success or that Birds of Prey was a failure.

    I guess it's just a "expectations" thing. Oscar movie vs comic book movie.

    Glad you liked it! I thought it was hilarious, colorful, cartoony (in a good way, since it's Harley), and the fights were exhilarating, especially the whole police station sequence.

    First look at the full Batman suit and cowl courtesy of Variety

    Looks kinda dorky, but iphone stills don't normally do these shots justice. They're going for that Batman: Zero Year look.

    Looks really cool and different from what we have seen before. I bet we'll get a trailer with WW84!

    I'm fine with it, I just don't like the cowl.

    Nolan's suit is still the best.

    I don't take much stock in how the costume looks while filming. Especially in the modern age, where it's almost impossible to not look dorky, or like cosplay. That being said, it looks like its headed in a positive direction. Kind of a mix of Nolan's Batman and the Arkham games

    I think it will look very different under darker lighting, and after color correction. Seeing these costumes in the bright light of day never does them justice.

    Personally I'm a fan of Bat-fleck's suit. This looks interesting, but I'll reserve judgement until I see in a trailer or something. As a side note, that's definitely a stunt double in that suit.

    I like Battfleck's suit, I've just personally always been inclined towards the more utilitarian, tactical looking Bat suits.
