I have heard stern is possibly working with arcade 1up- any truth to this?
I haven't heard anything, but the cabinets that CGC made a few years ago with the "Arcade Legends" stuff had a bunch of classic Stern arcade games in them, and they were all credited as being licensed from Gary Stern and another Stern, I presume his wife but perhaps his mother or sister.
So since they licensed those to Chicago Gaming I'm sure they'd be more than happy to license those to Arcade 1Up if they wanted to make a Frenzy/Berzerk game or something.
We may finally get our Jaws pin, albeit in LEGO form?
That would be a collaboration to build on!
I seriously don’t know why I get so anxious and excited at pinball announcements. What the hell is wrong with me!?
I love Star Wars. In fact I was just sourcing the 4K edits of the original films from the internet last night, but I was overly excited about a Stranger Things pin. What a massive let down a Star Wars home edition is.
I know it's not for us, but that doesn't make it any less annoying that they would hype up so much for a damn large toy.
My 18 year old son watches a few things on youtube on his phone and even that is only when he is stuck waiting for something. Stranger Things is super targeted to a much older generation, its about being a kid in the 80s.
Netflix means a whole other thing to 18 year olds.
I think we’re being trolled here....no way the next release is Sw home. Possibly they’re launching the new game and a Sw home together at Comic-Con.
It's a Frank Zappa pin for sure!
Backglass based on 'Dinah-Moe Humm'
I poked 'n stroked till my wrist got numb
But I still didn't hear no Dinah-Moe Humm,
That would be awesome but yeah I bet licensing would prevent it from happening. Well, it could probably happen but I wouldn't expect any original actor voice and video clips. Square Enix, a multibillion dollar video game company, is making a new Marvel Avengers game and it doesn't feature the likeness of any of the actors from the films...
Holy crap. 13hrs away. 120+ posts plus another 120+ in the other Stern release thread. I thought we got a bombshell dropped but it's just a bunch of other guys as overly excited as myself lol
If Jaws was made, I’d buy 2.
But I don’t think stern has done a horror/violent/scary pin in.. like.. forever?
Quoted from drfrightner:
The numbers I posted are 110% correct and Box Office Mojo does have the adjusted numbers for JP series. I was only posting North America numbers, World wide numbers the studios don't even get half that money. As for example in China they're getting a small fraction of theatrical run and sometimes they don't get any. Many times those markets buy into the film for their market, they pay one price and they own the film in that market. When they're making a new movie most of the time they sell foreign markets in advance to raise the money to make the movie. Studios get about 80% of the gross the opening weekend in north america and it goes down to as low as 30% at some point. Studios goal is to make its money back on a theatrical run but to do that they need to gross back 3 times the budget. Many directors, actors, and producers get points on a theatrical run, the money for the studios is everything after the box office.
Theatrical runs are advertisement for the films for the next 25 years where they really make money... selling rights to cable, netflix, dvd, and licensing.
Either way here is the link to JP series adjusted and unadjusted grosses: https://www.boxofficemojo.com/franchises/chart/?id=jurassicpark.htm
As you will clearly see the latest JP film is second to last in gross after the adjustment. We're talking about NA only. BTW many films didn't get tracked for overseas, hence there are no numbers for much older movies.
So that's why you're not using international numbers? Lame. Stern markets globally and JP is a global brand whether you like it or not.
