Dont you take into account that FC is the very first movie?
it seems you dont really take into account all the factors that influence a sequel boxoffice.
too optimistic would be to expect 800 millions. but to expect 500 millions 3 years later than the original movie, with tickets prize increase, the GREAT critics of FC, the cast getting more fame, and the hype for the sequel...
I mean... do you really think 500 millions is a hard achieve in the industry current state?
You are underestimating the potential of FC. honestly.
Batman begins wasnt a big success, and take a look at its sequel. X1 wasnt a big success, take a look at the results of X2. Its a pattern. A great first comicbook movie will lead to a better sequel money wise.
So why to be negative? Its pointless, with all the respect, psylock.
