This is an exciting and unique investment opportunity that doesn’t come around often. Up for bid is a share of the net proceeds from the most successful film in one of the highest-grossing horror franchises — 2009’s The Final Destination (also known as Final Destination 4).
Buying this asset allows you to collect a share of the producer’s participation in the net proceeds from the film's distribution. This includes income generated from broadcasts such as free or pay TV, streaming services, and video on demand (as well as any future theatrical re-releases). It also includes payments for copyright royalties around the brand. A share of the net proceeds is then paid to the winning bidder once per year.
Over the last six years, these producer proceeds have totaled just over $229,000. The last three years’ earnings average $51,000/year.
Note: The participation income is dependent upon the film’s proceeds exceeding its costs and expenses, as calculated by the distributor of the film.
