Default Re: The Iron Man 3 Box Office Prediction Thread

It is very encouraging that interest in Iron Man 3 is even higher than it was for The Avengers. That definitely shows that there is an "Avengers Effect" on interest in Marvel films.

Tracking for the biggest blockbusters is usually low, so IM3 will undoubtedly exceed projections. The Hunger Games was tracked for $100 million at this point before it was released, which was over $50 million off the mark. Should that hold true for IM3, $175 million+ isn't out of question.

We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
