First and Final Fantasy

Square plunges into red, vows never to make another movie

Japanese developers Square have admitted they are likely to post a loss this year, mostly thanks to the dismal showing of their groundbreaking digital animation movie Final Fantasy : The Spirits Within. The film cost upwards of $135m to produce even before advertising and other costs are taken into account, but has so far pulled in a meagre $60m worldwide, with the Japanese launch also expected to be relatively poor. The film could end up setting the company back to the tune of $115m, so it is perhaps not surprising that Square COO Yoichi Wada has confirmed that this will probably be their first and last foray into the movie industry.
