So all those interviews that Mark Millar speaks out on are only for 1% of the GA?
I say this because Mark makes it clear in every interview that it's Fox that makes these X-films.

The Sentinels, The DOFP story and Bringing back some members of the original, plus First Class Cast and hopefully one or two badass character additions will push it over that $460 million mark, and probably add 3D to it i could see the film grossing $750-$850million.
Yeah you're forgetting one thing though.
If DOFP was in fact really good and had two or three weeks to themselves that would be plausible.
As it stands now, they'd be lucky to get 150-200 mill domestically and another 200 mill overseas.
Remember LOTR's track record is far greater than fox's x-men. So I don't see the final piece of the LOTR's legacy being ignored for a dwindling Fox franchise. Especially overseas
