No you are just poorly informed on how movies work its not all about box office.
Its about dvd sales and tv rights, they can make 50m plus on tv alone world wide, and Carter made well over its budget.
But I guess we all feel much better now You spent time trying to derail the thread.
Lets look at girl with The Dragon tattoo for a second.
A massive bomb by your metric, but sony are moving ahead with the sequel, why if it was a bomb would they do that?
Just because north America does not see R rated moves In cinemas any more, Does not mean the rest if the world does not.
Plus streaming rights, cable rights, tv rights, dvd sales, bluray sales.
All those things make millions, sometimes multiple hundreds of millions.
