I wondered if Batman & Robin made a profit. Looks like might've, tho I'm not sure how much it cost to market, or how many toys it sold.

Budget   $125–160 million[1][2][3]
Box office   $238.2 million[4]

I believe toy and merchandise sales did help it as well.

I've not been able to get exact figures, but a quick google search suggests that after you add on marketing costs, it more or less broke even. I can't find anywhere which gives a value of what was actually spent on marketing, but I don't have a great deal of time to research it right now unfortunately.

What an expensive indulgence.  I saw it in a theater new and was one eye-roll after another.   :thumbdown: :bluesad:

It most likely made lots of money when it was released to VHS (and DVD) for rental and purchase. According to Billboard video rentals raked in $15 Billion in 1997. I'm sure Batman & Robin got a big slice of that.
Example, Showgirls was a box office flop ($37 million) but made more than $100 million from video rentals alone, not counting sales.
