And if I remember right none of the box office sites predicted The Wolverine to have the lowest domestic opening of any X-Men movie. Which nonetheless happened.
The Wolverine didn't have a buzz like this last year. The buzz for that movie only started this March when we saw the trailer. And the box-office predictions for The Wolverine were completely OFF The marketing was weak and I was right with my prediction with an opening weekend gross of 40 to 60 million.
The Wolverine also didn't trend a lot MONTHS before its release. And DOFp has been trending since last year starting with the cast announcements, Singer's tweets in Twitter about the film, the Quicksilver situation, Comic-Con panel, The Wolverine's mid-credits scene and now the leak footage.
The Wolverine didn't get much attention like what DOFP is getting right now, 9 months before the release date.
