Thanks to some hard work by Ritchie Steven, weeks of box office results have been posted on the message board. With that comes a few things. One of them is updating the Talent Scores for the top people in those movies. And, after some more work, those talents have there TS now updated.
It should be little surprise that many of the films earned good grosses. With fewer movies being released, more of the box office bucks result for individual films. And, with higher totals, the likelihood of an increase to TS results. In fact, all talents processed had an increase… except for one. Seth Rogen, star of Flip Brothers’ Horror Hours, saw a decrease in TS from 14.859 to 14.631. Fortunately for Rogen, he saw his TS increase to a whopping 16.694 for his participation in Miracle Pictures’ All Up In That Junk.
Some talents became new members of the 10+ Club, seeing their scores rise to 10 or greater: Nicole Kidman in Seeker (PLS), Hulk Hogan in UWC Monday Metal (FB), John Waters and Elizabeth Banks for All Up In That Junk (MP) and Dan Byrd in Tornado (HP).
Byrd’s rise was from 5.314, thanks to a leading role in the $426,518,993 grossing film.
In addition to this Talent Score work, payments will be made shortly to the studios for their films.
“I smell more than a billion dollars in payments” stated one HTG admin.
UPDATE: The remaining weeks of Box Office have been worked up. More talents joining the 10+ Club are: Steve James, Charlize Theron and Steven Seagal for XCC: In For a Penny (PLS) (Theron becoming the second highest TS actress in HTG); Sofia Coppola, Bill Murray, Zooey Deschanel and Emma Watson for Space Travel on a Budget (MP) (Zooey now the third highest TS actress. Adrien Brody just missed out making a 10 TS).
ANOTHER UPDATE: “More than a billion dollars” was an understatement. Just over five billion dollars was paid to studios for exiting films. Of course, producers must be paid from that money. However, these payouts may be the largest in HTG history.
