Looking forward to the sequel and I'm just curious why I never see Jon Favreau mentioned when it comes to who people would like to see direct the sequel? He did a great job with Ironman in taking a comic superhero and making it feel very plausible and real (as real as it could be considering it is a comic movie)!

By the logic of "Rocky", very few movies would EVER make a profit. It seems you are applying your "logic" to this movie to make a point and excluding most movies. Very few August opening movies will be mega-hits, as there are too many factors going against them.
I tend to agree that the budget was way over-stated. Look at the movie and tell me that it looks like a 170 million dollars? There was no "A-list" actor that was a lead (Quaid had a minor role.) So either the budget was totally mis-managed or it isn't the exact truth.
When most movies break 100 million, they are considered successful - even if you don't like them.

I used to study film and I am quite aware of where the money comes from. Sometimes films that seem to perform poorly actually still make quite a bit of profit.
I think with ticket sales (global), toy sales (which are probably out selling the film) the eventual DVD and Blu Ray sales plus the money made from TV (like HBO and PPV) this film will make Paramount quite a lot when it's all said and done. DVD sales often outperform ticket sales (hell, Blockbuster rentals can account for $50-75 mil alone!).
I think Hasbro actually financed part of this film (moreso than TF) so there's less risk involved for Paramount. I think Hasbro is more concerned about selling toys.
Sequels also quite often perform better (if they're as good as the original - which won't be too hard in this case). If a sequel is released in June or July I think they have a better shot at breaking $200 million or more.
We gotta see a classic Cobra Commander and things like HISS tanks and characters like Flint, Lady Jaye, Gung-Ho and Shipwreck to expand the popularity.
