Well It seems like not liking Iron Man 3 Is a minority view.And I gurante Iron Man 3 doesn't get the flak some are giving X-Men.And I am not talking about Origins or last Stand.I
doudt anyone says Shane Black ruined Iron man like they say Bryan Singer ruined X-Men.

I don't love the rami Spider-man trilogy like others do.Amazing Spider-man was closer to my view on spider-man despite the ultimate influences.But i respect those who do and understand those who love first 2 films.

Next people will start bashing X-Men,X2,and first Class because they got better reviews than Man of steel.According to some man of steel was brillent and any who disagrees Is crap

Other films not X-Men make plenty of changes or reimagens them but they get no flak and others go around on here and other places prasing them

If your going to go around bashing X-Men films you have to start going same treatment to other films which few are doing
No one's bringing any of that up in here but you.

It seems to me that just about everyone who's posted in this thread is interested in seeing this movie, hopes it's good, and that it does well if it is.

They're allowed to like or dislike whatever they want, for whatever reason they want, without be labelled into any group.

Boxoffice.com had predicted $65M so I guess somewhere in this range. Interesting article.

Bombs away: Hollywood braces for historic four straight weeks of megaflopsBy Todd Cunningham | Reuters

By Todd Cunningham
LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) - The summer box office has entered the Dud Zone.

Unless either "R.I.P.D." or "Turbo" pulls off a major tracking turnaround by July 19, the frame will likely mark the fourth straight week that a $100 million-plus film flops - an unprecedented skid in the Tentpole Age.

This summer will see at least 20 films with budgets over $100 million - six more than last year. With so much popcorn competition, major casualties were a given.

But this run of high-megaton bombs comes at an odd time: Right after record-breaking grosses in May and June that put summer 2013 on pace to be the biggest ever. Since then, it's been an ugly run for would-be blockbusters.

Sony's $150 million "White House Down" started the slide with less than $25 million the weekend of June 28. Disney's $225 million "The Lone Ranger" followed with $29 million over the July 4 weekend. Now, Guillermo del Toro's $180 million giant robot extravaganza "Pacific Rim" is tracking to open at around $30 million this weekend.

Early projections have the Jeff Bridges-Ryan Reynolds tale "R.I.P.D." opening below $15 million, a dismal return on a $130 million production budget.

And the outlook isn't much brighter for "Turbo," the $135 million DreamWorks Animation family film about a snail with dreams of speed, which opens that same weekend.

The summer's surfeit of tentpole movies drove the box office to record levels in the season's first two months, but the competition is clearly starting to take a toll. "Pacific Rim" will be trying to lure action fans this weekend, but will compete with four big-budget movies of the same genre: "The Lone Ranger," "White House Down," "Man of Steel" and "World War Z" - all of which are still in more than 2,000 theaters.

There are a few bright spots ahead this month.

Sony's $80 million Adam Sandler comedy "Grown Ups 2" is expected to open Friday at between $40 million and $45 million, roughly the number the original managed. And Fox's Hugh Jackman action film "Wolverine" is projected to debut with around $70 million on July 26.

Despite the bombs of the past two weeks, the box office remains nearly 13 percent of ahead of last summer. We'll see where that number is at later this month, but a summer record remains a possibility at this point.

With July sure to come up short of 2012, especially since "Dark Knight Rises" opened to $168 million in that month last year, the key will be August. It looks potentially strong, due more to the number of wide releases rather than a single likely blockbuster.

Here's what's on tap:

August 2: Universal's Denzel Washington-Mark Wahlberg action film "Two Guns" is tracking at $45 million and gaining momentum. Sony has "The Smurfs 2" on that same weekend.

August 9: Sony TriStar rolls out the Matt Damon-Jodie Foster sci-fi movie "Elysium," which is tracking at $30 million and building buzz. The Warner Bros. comedy "We're the Millers," Fox's "Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters" and "Planes" from Disney Animation also open.

August 16: The following week has four wide openers as well. Universal's action comedy "Kick-Ass 2" is looking at a $25 million opening, according to early tracking. Also debuting that week are Open Road's Steve Jobs biopic "Jobs," Relativity's thriller "Paranoia" and the Weinstein Company drama that may or may not be called "The Butler."

August 23: Sony's fantasy drama "Mortal Instrument: City of Bones," along with the Lionsgate horror movie "You're Next" and Focus Features' Edgar Wright-Simon Pegg comedy "The World's End."

August 30: The last week of summer will also feature four wide releases: Sony TriStar's concert film "One Direction: This is Us," the Weinstein Company's horror film "Satanic" and two thrillers, "Getaway" from Warner Bros. and Focus Features' "Closed Circuit."

Hoping it can do even better, if reviews are great. While not as big an opening as Origins, it's much better than First Class. Hopefully word of mouth prevents it from having the usual X-Men multipliers.

a 70 Million dollor tracking means Intrest has gone up for film.Also remember It has 3-d to help It which Origins didn't have.

Wouldn't It be something If this Is this year's Rise of the planet of the apes?

I hope this movie outgrosses First Class (domestic/worldwide) but I seriously don't think this movie is gonna set records w/c is kinda disappointing to me since the last two superhero movies that were released this year had a couple of records. And they weren't even that great as a movie.

I just wish Fox realizes that they are not making more money and setting records (like they did with the first three X-Men movies) with releasing more X-Men spin-offs.

Fox usually does a great job marketing but I think they absolutely phoned in First Class. All I remember about the marketing of that film was everyone mocking the awful posters they kept churning out.

The Wolverine is already being marketed better. MUCH better.

I have my Red Robin Wolverine gift card and can't wait to eat my beserker burger after I see the film on the 26th!

I don't know about their usual work, but yes, the FC promotion was awful. I remember terrible posters and a bunch of commercials that were very similar to each other with most of them using the same music from the teaser until it was so boring.

I didn't really follow First Class' marketing but with all these posters and videos and interviews, I think you might be right that The Wolverine is being marketed better.

Boxoffice.com originally said $63M so it's gone up. The Wrap has it at $70M opening.

If The Wolverine gets more than 60 million at the opening weekend. It would be the 9th film with the highest opening weekend earnings this year. 8th if gets more than 66.41 million.

I have yet to give a more precise forecast but my analysis and approximate projections for The Wolverine are found here: http://box-office-film-news.blogspot...ecast-and.html

I am looking at an opening between $50M and $65 million. And I don't see it making more than its predecessor(the origins film) domestically. Except if it is a really good film.
