Default 2013 at the box office thread

I figured it was time for a thread like this to discuss this year's cinematic crop. 2012 saw a record 4 $1 Billion dollar plus movies; can 2013 top it? Post your predictions, or discuss current box office figures.

2013 Box Office so far:

Domestic Grosses:

1. Identity Thief - $120,587,000
2. Oz The Great and Powerful - $114,214,000
3. Mama - $71,182,525
4. Safe Haven - $65,294,000
5. A Good Day to Die Hard - $64,649,000
6. Warm Bodies - $64,010,910
7. Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters - $54,580,844
8. Escape From Planet Earth - $50,464,000
9. Jack the Giant Slayer - $49,443,000
10. Gangster Squad - $45,887,098

Worldwide Grosses:

1. A Good Day to Die Hard - $241.6 million
2. Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters - $197.1 million
3. Oz The Great and Powerful - $184.1 million
4. Identity Thief - $122.8 million
5. Mama - $112.9 million
6. Gangster Squad - $99.1 million
7. Warm Bodies - $92.8 million
8. Jack the Giant Slayer - $72.0 million
9. Safe Haven - $65.3 million
10. From Up on Poppy Hill - $60.0 million

This list doesn't include Journey to the West: Conquering the Demons which has made $202 million, but has openly opened in a few Asian nations.

I'm happily surprised at how well Mama has done, and utterly shocked at how successful A Good Day to Die Hard and Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters are. International appeal does wonders I suppose. 2013 won't be a record breaking year (just wait until 2015), but I think it will have a few big hits. My top 3 worldwide grossing films are:

1. Iron Man 3
2. The Fast and the Furious 6
3. Monsters University

Runners up include Star Trek Into Darkness, The Hangover Part 3, Man of Steel, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, Thor: The Dark World, Despicable Me 2, and possibly (hopefully) Pacific Rim.
