TCM 3D wasn't in high demand, & most fans hated it, and critics literally massacred it (pun intended) so I can understand why a sequel to that film won't happen any time soon.

Not to mention, it cost $20 million to make, & had another $20 million worth of advertising, & has only made $34 million to date. That's not in demand, because if it were, though numbers would be far, far higher. The 2003 remake was made for $9 & made $80 million domestically, $107 worldwide. That movie was in demand.

The Elm Street movie cost $35 million to make, & that's not including what the marketing costs were, so making $63 million isn't really a good thing. They made $115 million worldwide I believe, but they don't keep a large share of the profits they earn internationally (no film does unless the deal they work out is air tight).

With that said, Elm Street needed to make $70 million domestically to break even, & probably over $100 million domestically to have been a real profit.

Friday '09 was made for $19 million, & if promotion cost the same, bump that to $38 million, & the movie made about $43 million opening weekend, ending with a total of $65 million domestically & $90 million worldwide. That's good money.

True

I hope it sent them running.

If you look at a time line, most of the money was made opening weekend, then after that it nose dived. Once people had seen it and word got out, it sank faster than the Titanic, and not nearly as climatic.

Yeah, the NOES is probably the only film PD made that didn't make a profit. Amityville Horror did well, TCM was a box office smash & still their greatest triumph to date, The Beginning didn't do as much business but still made enough of a profit to be a success, & F13th was a big success, but NOES didn't really do anything worth acknowledging both in terms of money making & the quality of the film itself.

I remember a lot of people thinking that it would break F13th's opening weekend record, & I didn't see it happening with A. a new Freddy that had less charisma than the first & B. a movie that wasn't really adding anything new or different to the mythology.
