NFS Movie Is Now The 18th Best-Selling Game Film Ever
Uh...I guess this is good news.
Even though it got off to a slow start, the recently released "Need for Speed" movie has crossed the $100 million mark in total lifetime box office sales. This according to Hollywood reporting service Box Office Mojo.
The film earned over $30 million in the US and upwards of $96 million internationally. This means the total is now $126.6 million, and that's nearly double the cost of making the movie, which came in at $66 million. The movie covered that cost over the opening weekend so profitability was inevitable, thankfully.
But perhaps the most interesting stat is that according to the Video Game Adaption Chart, the NFS movie is now the 18th best-selling movie based on a video game in US history. #1 is 2001's smash hit "Lara Croft: Tomb Raider" featuring Angelina Jolie.
However, a movie this bad - and I have to say, it's pretty bad - is the 18th best-selling game-to-film adaptation ever? ...well, if that isn't some sort of negative commentary, nothing is.
