Re: The 'The Wolverine' Box Office Prediction Thread - Part 1
Despite opening on more than twice as many screens (655) as Ataru, its strong Japan connections, heavy promotion and the local popularity of Hugh Jackman, The Wolverine -- released here as Wolverine: Samurai -- could only manage a $1.86 million weekend opening, leaving it in third place, behind Miyazaki.
"By himself, Hugh Jackman can sell out the Yellow Pages." - Broadway Producer
"It's not just that they don't make 'em like Hugh Jackman anymore - they never did."
"Hugh Jackman cruised in to a roaring crowd oozing more sex appeal then Prince Charming riding a horse called Charisma into the land of Suave."
"Hugh is not supposed to exist. You’re not supposed to be that macho, that tender and that athletic, and be able to sing." - Anne Hathaway
