Early Thor Darkworld box-office predictions
 
I know it's little under a year until Thor: The Dark World hits theaters, but might as well begin early predictions/speculation about how it'll perform come November 8, 2013.

I think Disney and Marvel were smart to pick that date. The goodwill carried over from The Avengers (and presumably IM3), should give Thor 2 a boost. If the marketing and word-of-mouth is good too, I expect numbers like these:

Opening weekend: $75M-80M
Domestic gross: $230M-$250M
Worldwide gross: $600M-$700M

I don't expect those numbers to be higher, unless Thor 2 really blows people away.

i think after avengers all the solo films will have a slight jump in box office. thor in particular. i think it will make around the same amount as iron man 2.

I am going to astoundingly predict that it's too early to predict how much money this movie is going to make.

This movie should get a boost from Avengers but unsure how much until we see how Iron Man 3 does. Plus depending on how Ender's Game is received it could cut into Thor's opening while Catching Fire diminishes its legs two weeks later.

In order to make realistic predictions*, we really need to see more footage from the film. After they release at least a teaser trailer, which should hit at Super Bowl time, we'll get a firmer idea of the film's plot, appeal and overall quality.


Having said that, I would guess that TDW will make at least TASM numbers WW. Thor is coming off major exposure in his own film and The Avengers, and Chris Hemsworth has also had a stellar couple of years which will continue next year with a few more films before TDW comes out. Who knows, maybe the after-credits scene in Iron Man 3 might be used to promote TDW, too. Marvel has developed a very slick co-marketing strategy that establishes synergy across its shared universe, with each movie serving to promote the others. The MCU is roaring down the tracks like a runaway freight train, gathering momentum with each new film. With a good push from IM3 and excellent marketing, Thor:TDW could barrel through the cineplexes raking in the dough.


* Yes, I know it's all still wild-ass guessing no matter how much information we have. But the more we know, the less wild it becomes. I think. :cwink:

Still waiting on Hemsworth's star to rise. At this point, he's still just Thor to most moviegoers. His marquee value sure didn't help Cabin in the Woods or Red Dawn, and I'd ascribe whatever box office success SWATH had to Kristen more than Chris. I'm hoping Rush will turn into a breakout role for him, but I kinda suspect that movie, unfortunately, is a little too niche to appeal to broader audiences.

I hope TDW does boffo box office, but I'm not making any real predictions until Sep-Oct 2013, after we see how Rush helps Hemsworth's star power.

I think Thor II will make between 600-700 million easily

Re: Early box-office predictions
 
I see it doing between 650-700M, and I think it will do considerably better than captain america's sequel, for example.
From phase II, it's the movie I'm mostly looking forward by far!

I say about 700-800 million, but if it does more then more power to them.

I think it's a reasonable prediction, and I have the feeling it can make that much.
