Betcha,You may want to take an econ class in the near future. Revenue
does not equal profit.
Betcha,The making of this movie provided employment for thousands of
people - if you include the movie theaters, suppliers, etc. The human condition
will not change if people are just given things. There are some in our society
who are not able to provide for themselves, it is up to us to help them, not
JUST a move maker.You are of course welcome to give generously to
those who are in needs, as do I through appropriate ways. I have yet to see
money given directly to someone on the street actually solve their long term
problems, maybe you have a different experience. I will see this
movie when the crowds slow down - or I may have to wait to rent the DVD. Your
comment will not make me feel bad about spending money on this type of
Assuming that Endgame had a box office take of $1.2 Billion, and one entity
spent all of that money on homes, and assuming that you could find homes for
$200,000 (incl. taxes, downpayment, etc.), you could purchase 6,000 homes with
that money. This would house far fewer than "millions" of people.
Perhaps you could rent instead. Assuming an average cost of $1,500 per month,
you could provide homes for 66,666 people for one year for $1.2 Billion. Of
course, one company does not make or keep all of that money, nor is it all
revenue. Marvel/Disney has already invested heavily to make and distribute the
film - including the payroll for the many people have been employed in the
production of the film. The companies that made the cameras, lights, vehicles,
props and other materials or consumables purchased to make the film had
employees who were paid as a result of its production. The movie theaters that
showed the film have employees as well. There will certainly be a short term
concentration of wealth for some of those involved, but that money will be spent
over time, and the products and services purchased will lead to jobs, which
allow people to buy or rent dwellings and food.
I understand that this movie made over a billion dollars in 4 days,,, wow, that
tells me so much about where our priorities are,,, that kind of money could
give homes to millions and could give food for millions, for the rest of their
lives,,, what a waste.
