Default Re: Man of Steel Box Office Prediction Thread - Part 1

I doubt MOS will brake any box office records. It's going to be a fantastic outcome if it brakes into the top 5 June OW all time list.
True ... but can't just use months history as what will happen next ... forever, March was a barren wasteland ... then 300 did 70 million and set a record and people were like, cool. Then you had Hunger Games make 150 million, smashing what came before. If a movie is good and marketed well, people will show up.

Man of Steel Prediction for now
Opening - 110 million (could go higher if buzz continues to grow ... Superman Returns with inflation, Friday release instead of Wednesday and 3D would be over 90)
Domestic Gross - 325 million (SR does 260-265 with inflation/3D)
Overseas Gross - 400 million (SR does about 250 inflation/3D)

Worldwide Gross - 725 million
