Re: Gattaca cost – this was made in a post-Waterworld world. Budgets traditionally don’t contain marketing costs. Waterworld’s reported budget was actually 1.75 hundred-million. The 2 hundred-million, most costly ever, tag came from people adding in the marketing estimate. $36 million is respectable for a well-known cast along with a SciFi theme.
Sometimes, I think it’s good not to know too much about the DC universe or the extended Marvel universe (I have a minor in X-men and early Vertigo, that’s about it). We watched the War and Atlantis DC movies back-to-back and were entertained. I don’t think I’d want to watch them on a loop, but the fact that Atlantis covered so much ground (and left so much behind) was lost on me, so I didn’t have that complaint.
There should be a Young Justice movie, podcast, web series, mug and tv series….
