Ender's Game 2: What speaks against?

The argument that speaks against a continuation, the box office. The film has cost 110 million US dollars, while recorded just under 90 million. Although the reviews were very good and the film landed in the first week at the top of the US charts, but could not keep his position. In the first week Ender's Game played 28 million US dollars, slipped in the second week but at No. 5, the US box office and only generated revenue of $ 10 million. A rather disappointing result.
