Freddy vs. Jason vs. Michael (Box Office Figures)

Discussion in 'Slashers' started by Peter Vincent, Aug 20, 2002.

  1. I thought this was an interesting comparison at box office mojo.com:

    http://www.boxofficemojo.com/franchises/vs-horroricons.htm

    Despite only bustin' out with 7 movies (compared to Michael's 8 and Jason's 10), Freddy is King...but if U factor in inflation, Jason wins, but not by much!

    Man, did Jason X really do that bad at the BO???

    Inflation adjusted figures are what really matter. More people have seen Jason on screen than Freddy, so that should make him more popular. I think they are using Freddy's name first in "Freddy vs. Jason" because Freddy hasn't been in a new film for 10 years, and that he became popular later than Jason, so he will be fresher in everyone's mind.

    Box Office Mojo is a great site, that comparison was really cool. I'd like to see them do a "Child's Play" series chart as well.

    Jason beats ass in overall box office inflated or not. I love the F13th series more than any other, so I'm glad to see ol' hockey mask beats off the competition, so to speak. Too bad F vs. J is shaping up to be a shitfest so far. Destinys Child member is the lead role? Shoot me in the fucking face please.
