Re: Man of Steel Box Office Prediction Thread
Skyfall has already been brought up a number of times in the thread. Just simply with that "anything can happen" explanation.
Skyfall didn't come out as "the sequel to QoS", it came in as the "james bond 50th anniversary extravaganza movie!". Bond regardless of QoS still had a very strong film track record and was still very popular overseas and domestically too to a lesser margin.
The 50th anniversary and adele song all added to that as well, as well as the gap etc. It wasn't some out of the blue hit it had a lot behind it that MOS won't.
I'm not saying MOS won't do great but people have actually tried to use the skyfall example to back up how they believe MOS can/will do a billion, which i highly highly doubt.
