Re: The Iron Man 3 Box Office Prediction Thread
THG2 being a billion dollar no brainer I just do not see. It wasn't so hot OS with the first film and this isn't a case of a 1st movie coming out several years ago before China expanded or whatever excuse is now popular for why OS has grown. THG1 came out just a year ago and I'm pretty damn sure there's not been any major shift in OS theaters in that short of a time. And I'm in no way sure THG2 is gonna increase domestically as well. Pretty much universally when films do more than $400M DOM the next film in the series makes less. I think it's because once you get that high you're pretty much reaching a saturation point and don't have any room to grow. It's the reason TDKR made less than TDK DOM and why I'm very confident Avatar 2 and TA2 will make less than their predecessors DOM.
You know, it occurs to me that Captain America is basically the superhero equivalent of Mary Poppins. Practically perfect in every way and all that stuff.
