Everybody seems to be back for the sequel with new cast members Harvey Keitel, Ed Harris and Helen Mirren.

I really enjoyed the first one...And I am looking forward to the sequel. Nice additions to the cast..except Harvey Keitel was in the original.
Bring back John Doe! Or at least resolve the cliff-hanger with a 2hr movie or as an extra on a dvd release.

Yeah I did enjoy the first one, but am surprised that a sequel was greenlit. I didn't think the first one made too much money, and I only saw it because it was in the 2/$15 sale at Best Buy.

Well, far be it from me to complain about getting to see more of Diane Kruger! Posted Image

It made $173m with a budget of $35m, so it shouldn't be that surprising.

Most DVDs of blockbusters get heavily discounted eventually, so it shouldn't be a judge if a movie was a financial success.

Personally, I thought the movie was pretty darn silly.

The budget for this movie was NOT $35 million.

Are you high? They did a lot of action sequences, not to mention that they had to pay the cast.

It was $100 million, and they made $173.

I was gonna say Posted Image. Cage alone probably eats up half of that amount.

Off course it was a bit silly. But, how cool would it be if their really was such a treasure? Am I am not talking about the gold and other valuables. I am talking about the lost works of literature. Think about how much stuff was destroyed when the Library at Alexandria was destroyed.

The first one was surprisenly a lot of fun. Here's to hoping the second keeps that going.

They also made $174 million overseas, so after paying theaters their due this movie was quite profitable.

However, I saw it. I remember thinking it was a fun time, but I really couldn't tell you much of what happened it was that effervescent.

National Treasure also had really good legs. I thought it was only amusing but it did really seem to connect with a lot of audiences.

Really enjoyed National Treasure and it kind of grew on me even more on dvd. I have high hopes...

Liked the first one enough. Thought that trailer for #2 was laughably bad.
"Because he's the hero that Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now... and so we'll hunt him... because he can take it... because he's not a hero... he's a silent guardian, a watchful protector... a DARK KNIGHT."

Whoops. You are right. I read the wrong number. It did cost $100m

In any case, it made money. Worldwide, it did $347m, so it probably made a decent profit.
