Something I've touched on many times before is that the accounting offices over at Warner Bros. deserve a closer look. If you follow box office analysis like I do, you'll come across experts in the field making claims like Harry Potter And The Order of The Phoenix actually Lost money for the studio, despite earning $938 million worldwide (I'll include a link to that in the Source). You'll also hear about the idea that Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice needed to make something like $900-$920 million in order to be profitable, meaning the $827M it made actually leaves Warner Bros. in the red!
A new report from The Hollywood Reporter reveals exactly what kinds of practices often lead Warner Bros. to doing anything but "laughing all the way to the bank" when their movies fail critically but seemingly do so well financially.

Oh, Harry Potter. The franchise that’s launched a thousand careers. Okay, that may be overselling it a bit.

This week, Neil Calloway looks at what films are celebrating milestones this year…
With 2017 now underway, it’s time to stop looking at what happened in film in 2016, and start looking forward to the new year by looking back. Here are some film anniversaries you can look forward to.
2017 will mark the tenth anniversary of the release of such films as Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and Spider-Man 3, the three highest grossing films of 2007. That’s right, it was hardly a classic year at the cinema, though you can mark the decade since the release of Zodiac in March and There Will Be Blood in December, films worth certainly worth revisiting.
