Profiting for $50m or even $100m is hardly anything for production studios as there are hidden costs incurred which is not reflected in the production budget.
I'm under the impression these estimated budgets dont include marketing. Their budgets will be much higher if they included that.

I got a press release for this today .... interestingly enough, the press release is ONLY for the steelbook and it claims to have a Lenticular sleeve. This was a UK press release.

So unless that small nugget was not edited out from a reg version, then it rightly appears that this will have a lenticular sleeve. fyi.

That'll be the icing on the cake if it does!

Ordered. Love the artwork with it's comic book styling. I only have one fear. That it won't be full gloss. This will need it to make those colours pop.

the uk slip is lenticular .... so i wonder if just they forgot to take out that lil line in the press release.

Oh it's a slip cover for the amaray! I thought you meant the steel comes with a lenti slip. Thought that was too good to be true
