Re: 'Days Of Future Past' BOX-OFFICE worldwide prediction
FOX is in a similar position to that of Disney/Marvel's back in 2011. While the success of the Avengers mash-up wasn't completely dependent on the box office results of Thor and Cap, a negative audience response to either film certainly could have slowed the momentum for the 2012 film.
FOX needs The Wolverine to at least match the results of XMFC, stop the declining box office trend with their X films and generate some excitement for DOFP. And unless FOX and Disney reach some kind of accord between now and then, fans can expect to see zero movie related merchandise in stores in the months leading up to the film's release.
If The Wolverine's WW box office exceeds XMFC, DOFP could be the biggest film in the X series to date and reach $500 million. If the declining BO trend continues, $400 million.
