Every summer, Michael Bay makes a new incredibly expensive movie, full of fire and always terribly reviewed. And yet, the studios still let the guy keep making them, ’cause apparently folks still go see ’em, and their, despite their $200,000,000 budgets (yes, that’s two hundred million dollars), they still make money. Lots of money.
And, interestingly enough, it seems that their profit continues to be related to, well, how many explosions there are. SlashFilm has created this fascinating infographic exploring the connection between the budgets of Bay’s films, their gross, onscreen deaths, explosions, and more.
Fascinating. Not compelling, but fascinating.
