When The Wolverine makes the numbers it did (US $132,556,852 / Int $282,271,394 / WW $414,828,246 ), considering how little interest there was in that film vs the amount of interest there is in DOFP, I can't see DOFP (if it's even just good) just making $35m-$85m more.
Just the novelty of the two casts, time travel, and what's sure to include some spectacular superhuman action against big robots I think around $600m (US$200m and OS$400m), give or take, is the baseline. How good the film is will dictate how far past that mark it'll go.
Like I said, there's way
more interest in DOFP right now than there was in TW this time last year.
