Tthose two are two different entities. The magazine I'm talking about is mainly about the movie exhibitor business (one that only cinema/theater chains receive), and articles about how well a certain movie(s) is predicted to do.

With a good word of mouth, it could reach 300 millions. I have a hard time picturing the movie grossing above 310 millions though.

International is hard to predict but I'd say that the least we can expect is a domestic/overseas ratio in the same neighbourhood as Captain America The First Avenger, maybe a bit better.
So the overseas gross may be anywhere between 300 and 330 millions. Maybe even 340/350.

I pretty much stand by the predictions I made awhile ago. I think the movie should make 620/660 millions worldwide.
Having said that if the movie is as impressive as it looks, who knows, maybe it can gross even more than that.

Oh are they? Because Boxoffice.com is the official website for a Box Office Magazine. The industry trade publication. Are there two Box Office Magazines?

Iron Man 3 is definitely going to be the most successful comic book movie this year, and I wouldn't be surprised if Thor: TDW ends up making as much money as MOS.

Opening date is not very good for MOS and Superman is not very popular overseas nowadays.

They're making another Thor? Why not just wait until Avengers 2?

Where are you getting these numbers? The top 2 should be lower than Toy Story 3, although TF2 would be #1 if it didn't open on a Wednesday.

No I just copied the list and didn't even realize it was adjusted (though I did think it was strange how big the grosses were for the old movies, I guess my brain froze on me ) Point was (and now that I see it's adjusted it's even stronger) that no June movie has ever made more than 119 million on it's OW so the guy saying how even 125 million OW for MOS is conservative is a bit...strange, to say the least. I doubt MOS will brake any box office records. It's going to be a fantastic outcome if it brakes into the top 5 June OW all time list.

I went and read some of the articles, and I think you're right. Some of the box office predictions and write-ups were in the past issues.

I'll check that magazine tomorrow when I go to work.

Seems to be the same magazine. Their wiki page leads to the website: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boxoffice_(magazine)

True ... but can't just use months history as what will happen next ... forever, March was a barren wasteland ... then 300 did 70 million and set a record and people were like, cool. Then you had Hunger Games make 150 million, smashing what came before. If a movie is good and marketed well, people will show up.

Man of Steel Prediction for now
Opening - 110 million (could go higher if buzz continues to grow ... Superman Returns with inflation, Friday release instead of Wednesday and 3D would be over 90)
Domestic Gross - 325 million (SR does 260-265 with inflation/3D)
Overseas Gross - 400 million (SR does about 250 inflation/3D)

Worldwide Gross - 725 million

What don't you get?

Adjusted box office is talked about all the time, including in the earlier posts by Godfrey.

Essentially, if you predict lower than 85-90 million, from a strictly ticket aspect, you're saying it's going to open lower than Superman Returns did ... same with under 250-260 million domestic gross.

Again, it's never a science, because times are different, but just in general, that's what the tickets sold would make you believe. Now don't compare films from YEARS ago, but if it's somewhat recent, it's going to be reasonable.

I just don't think it's possible for it to sell less tickets, with the seemingly 'fresher' take with great buzz, plus, I know it's overstated, but Nolan's name attached does give the film a certain credibility with people given his history in the genre.

Maybe, Superman's place in society will once again disappoint me, but I'm confident this time.

My writing was a little off ... but if it sells apx as many tickets as Superman Returns opening weekend (if it would have opened on a Friday instead of Wednesday) Man of Steel would do in the neighborhood of 90 million.

I simply feel that the demand seems to be higher than it was in 2006 ... but even saying that, I remember the disappointment of the film and the public's lack of embrace of the character in favor of Pirates of the Caribbean 2 & Jack Sparrow, leaving it to struggle to 200 million.

If it's not good & makes less than Superman Returns overall, the character is essentially dead as a tier 1 comic property in America for the foreseeable future and will be a huge strike for WB and their DC universe plans.

I hope it sure doesn't and don't expect it will.


... although, having said that ... all I truly care about is a good film.

Man Of Steel has very strong marketing behind it (goodness knows how much thats costing alone). The only thing that can really slow it down is mediocre/bad reviews for the film. Otherwise I can easily see this making 650-750m.

I wonder if the Wal-Mart advance screenings will actually help the film's opening weekend. People who see the 7 p.m. showings, like it, and rave to their friends and family about it might spur more walk-ins come Friday and Saturday.

The last trailer looked great, but I think I let my excitement for it cloud my judgement. so...I slightly lowered my estimate, but not by much. this is still a reboot afterall.
95/105 OW.
305/315 dom
310/320 overseas.
615/635 total.
