The Dawn Treader Has Hit An Iceberg

The Voyage Of The Dawn TreaderIn a surprising move, Disney announced they are not going to co-produce the third installment of “The Chronicles of Narnia” franchise. If only New Line Cinema did the same thing with the “Rush Hour” franchise

The second film, “Prince Caspian”, was a bit of a tank job in the United States since it didn’t even make half of what the first movie raked in. Of course, a normal movie that makes $141 million would be a success…unless it’s budget is right around that $200 million mark. Epic fail. Walden Media is going to try and get funding for a third installment but the word is that they could have some serious trouble in doing so. Movie studios are cutting way back in these “tough economic times”.

The real reason that “Prince Caspian” tanked is because it was released during the summer movie season, where “The Lion, The Witch, & The Wardrobe” was released in December. These movies are perfect for the Christmas season and the second movie was swept away by less-family oriented fare.

    I hope that Warner bros or paramount would fund them. Disney, in my opinion, shouldn’t have been involved with these incredible books. They just got involve because of harry potter, and now they are leaving it just because they didn’t make a couple of dollars.

    I was really surprised when I heard this news. I haven’t seen the 2 movies yet, but I’ve only heard good reviews about them.
