If Boxoffice.com is thinking DOFP is THE (or one of the) banner release for next summer (ie. highest grossing) I wonder how much they're predicting for its opening weekend.
Probably more than 100 million. X3 got more than 100 million in its opening weekend and DOFP will have 3D and price inflation. I'm just gonna be excited if this film really ends up as the highest grossing X-Men film to date! But of course the film has to be really good too and marketed well to earn more money in the long run.
X3 would have been the 2nd top grossing film of 2006 (domestic) if only the film was as good as X2. Cars got $244m and Night at the Museum got $250m. X3 would have at least earned 20 million more if only the film was better and if the legs weren't weak.
