Yeah, what would be the point of even planning an event if the rights to the movie were going to cost more than the projected ticket sales and put the company in debt?  It is a business after all.

The guy should have paid Rifftrax for the rights to use his POS of a movie ;D

Gotta wonder what percentage of the sales of "The Room" and "Birdemic" can be attributed to Rifftrax purchases.  I'd bet they are both in the 20's somewhere.

The last blockbuster released was Twilight back in Februrary.  If it's really about sales, then The Avengers should be the next big movie release.

Are they too afraid of low sales to riff recent bombs like John Carter?

They preemptively lost a whole truck-load of money just thinking about riffing John Carter.
I was holding a 10 dollar bill in my hand.  Then I read that post.  The bill instantly burst into flames.

Last night I watched The Net. I doubt there is a more riffable movie in existence.

Maybe Janet and Cole or Matthew Elliott will pick that one up.
That movie was hilarious in 1995, and is probably even moreso today.

I remember seeing that and thinking how absurd it was that this woman was so addicted to the Internet that she would take a laptop with her to the beach or order pizza online.  Now just about everyone has a smartphone or a tablet, and I order pizza online all the time.  It's just easier to do a complex order via a web site.

Or Hunger Games. That's out next month.

Can I ask, are you picking these because they're blockbusters or because you think they're ripe for jokes?

Wait, so the last mp3 riff release was in Feb?  I knew it'd been a while but ... HOLY SHIT.

Who cares as long as they're funny.

My sentiments exactly. I don't mind the VODs but my fiancé doesn't like them. We miss spending quality time watching Rifftrax together.

Must be common with women, because my wife isn't a fan of most of the VODs either but loves the blockbusters.

Never mind the blockblusters (sic), where are the shorts?

Me want more shorts. More often. I'm addicted.

And for those of you who have seen the Hunger Games (I haven't; I don't see Corporate Movies in theatres anymore--I wait for the riffs), would it make a funny riff?
