Not sure what you mean. I readjusted my prediction to $1.2b from $900m. Also, $1.2b is basically a lock. With the average MCU multiplier of 2.7 the film will hit $477m and the film will hit $750m OS in the next two weeks, and has a very good chance of $800m OS when all is said and done as well.

Also, as far as the WOM being mixed...not really. The film got an 'A' Cinema Grade score, is at 79% on RT and 7.8 on IMDb. The WOM is good. Being controversial isn't the same as being bad or mixed.

Big robots shouldn't bring the budget to $200m alone. I mean, look at Pacific Rim. I really doubt that has a $200m budget. Like I said though, I wouldn't be surprised. I'm just saying the budget will be $175-200m.
