Just throwing this out there: why isn't Warner doing a quadruple feature with The Firm? They could do a 5-film pack with The Rainmaker, if they really wanted to.

If I didn't already have these individual titles I would pick this up, a space saver!

I have the Pelican Brief, but would get this if it had the Firm instead of the Client.

And Warner is currently distributing some of Paramount's library, which is why I also suggested The Firm. Runaway Jury is Fox.

Because studio accountants - previously known as studio bosses - only want to cater to the under twenty, attention deficient demographic. Which means any film with what we would call a "plot" is cast aside for more idiotic fare that has explosions every twenty seconds.

The Pelican Brief (1993): $195.2 million

The Client (1994): $117.6 million

The Chamber (1996, includes int'l): $22.5 million

A Time to Kill (1996): $152.2 million

The Rainmaker (1997, no int'l available): $45.9 million

The Runaway Jury (2003): $80.1 million

 

Per Box Office Mojo and worldwide grosses (when available). While Roger has his own ideas, I think the pattern is fairly clear. Runaway Jury, for instance, had a production budget of $60 million. Assume half of that for marketing and the movie did not break even in its original theatrical run. It never hit #1 in it's 19 weeks in the theater.
