Re: The Iron Man 2 Box Office Prediction Thread
I think a $170-180m opening weekend is likely. Tracking shows a very similar level of interest to TDK at the same point in time. It's been roughly 2 years since then, meaning 2 years of inflation (typically around 4% per year). This means TDK's opening weekend adjusts to around $170m. So if IM2 has the same level of interest, it should make somewhere in that neighborhood. Depending on screencount and so forth, it could certainly squeeze another $5-10m out of it to get in that $180m area.
Domestically I think its total will be $425-475m. Worldwide I expect $800-850m.
