I meant overall budget, sorry. First TCCM remake had a $30million advertising budget, which beginning certainly didn't. Regardless of budgets the point i was making were the 2 sequels mentioned were much less high profile in the UK than the first films.
The same goes for AvP2 which surprises me, the first AvP was marketed big time and was in lots of magazines etc, just had a really good build up and it made more money than layer cake and alfie when it came out, which was some going considering the length of time since AR and especially pred 2 (anyone know the exact amount it made in the Uk, i think it was upwards of £3mill ?)
By lesser known actors i mean they aren't as well known !
