The predictions were off from day one on IM2. Because someone was using the wrong comparisons.
Using facts, logic and common sense is no use with them.

Remember, it's ok for Spider-Man 2 not making or surpassing Spider-Man 1 (for some odd reason) but unless Iron Man 2 made Spider-Man 1 numbers, it's considered a disappointment.

So just predict your favorite movie will make $1 at the box office and you'll be able to brag for years.
haha, that's true.
