In 20 minutes of coming attractions (not to mention a James Bond-style commercial for beer), I saw more money poured into glamorizing explosives, weaponry and commercialized violence than I'd witnessed in quite some time.
By their very nature, successful musicals can generate royalties for their investors for many years after the show's initial run. If a stage musical becomes a big hit, the chances are pretty good that it will make it to the silver screen.
