Uh…I guess this is good news.
Even though it got off to a slow start, the recently released "Need for Speed" movie has crossed the $100 million mark in total lifetime box office sales. This according to Hollywood reporting service Box Office Mojo .
The film earned over $30 million in the US and upwards of $96 million internationally. This means the total is now $126.6 million, and that's nearly double the cost of making the movie, which came in at $66 million. The movie covered that cost over the opening weekend so profitability was inevitable, thankfully.
But perhaps the most interesting stat is that according to the Video Game Adaption Chart , the NFS movie is now the 18th best-selling movie based on a video game in US history. #1 is 2001's smash hit "Lara Croft: Tomb Raider" featuring Angelina Jolie.
However, a movie this bad – and I have to say, it's pretty bad – is the 18th best-selling game-to-film adaptation ever? …well, if that isn't some sort of negative commentary, nothing is.
