Default Ant-Man and the Wasp - Box Office Discussion

Probably a little bit early for this thread, but I want to create this because I really like the 1st one and find that this film will probably suffer the most due to the over-saturation of CBM next year. Its box office run will be fun to track if we can keep the discussion of other films' effects on it.

We don't exactly have a CBM every other week next year (though it's close) but there're 10 CBMs with released dates:

1. Black Panther 2/16/18
2. New Mutants 4/13/18
3. Avengers: Infinity War 5/4/18
4. Deadpool 2 6/1/18
5. The Incredibles 2 6/15/18
6. Ant-Man and the Wasp 7/6/18
7. Venom 10/5/18
8. Dark Phoenix 11/2/18
9. Animated Spider-Man 12/14/18
10. Aquaman 12/21/18

So before AMatW hits in mid-summer the market has already had 4 live action CBM that can accumulate over 1.1B domestic: BP 250M+, New Mutants 150M, IW 400M+, Deadpool 300M+ (all except New Mutants can make considerably more: BP can draw an under-served demo and break out with 300M+similar to WW, IW and Deadpool can totally make around 475M and 375M, respectively, that means 1.3B spent on live action CBM before AMatW).

That hasn't mentioned The Incredibles 2, which (imo of course), if gets good review, can bring near 500M to Pixar like Dory last year (another sequel to 13-year-old 380M-adjusted childhood beloved movie). Incredibles, which is in its 4th weekend on AMatW's opening weekend, will definitely eat into the kid/ family demo of Ant-Man, which is the most kid-friendly sub-franchise in the MCU along with the GotG movies.

Direct competition with AMatW include:
- The Incredibles (3 weeks prior)
- Jurassic World sequel (2 weeks prior)
- Purge sequel (same weekend)
- Hotel Transylvania (1 week after)
- Mission Impossible 6 (3 weeks after)

So obviously competition with AMatW will mostly come before release. Currently my prediction is 70M OW, 170-200M, which is surely subjected to change when we have more news and teaser/ trailers.

Edit: About the poll options, I keep it that way so people can put a closer-range prediction which is more meaningful, and I find it hard for the film to make outside of the 300M-800M range. If some want 200M-300M, 800M-900M etc added I will ask mod to edit it.

No less than 600 million. 660 million IMO with an opening weekend of 70 million (in the USA)

I'm going 700. IFW is a heck of a lead in.

Also I might bump it to August to capitalize on the time between August & November when competition from the other blockbusters has died down.

I'll go with $650-700 million with it increasing due to it leading out from IW.

The first film was well received by audiences and had a terrific multiplier. It would have likely received a boost anyway.

I can't say how much though, but 600 -700 m seems realistic before seeing a trailer.

No less than $600 million. Probably 650. Maybe even 700 million due to coming 2 months after Infinity War.

An opening weekend of $80-85 million domestically.

Bump, as we now have trailer.

I vote for 600-650M, in the same ballpark as Doctor Strange.

Mcu fan base is steadily growing I feel particularly the past couple of years and will reach it's peak naturally around IW.
I can see this and subsequent smaller event/scale movies reaping the benefits of this increased fan base. I say 700 is doable.. unless it misses the mark critically, in which case, it should still do fine really.

I think Doctor Strange numbers are a good minimum target: $232M Dom, $677M OS. That's a good bump from Ant-Man - plus beats JL

But with the growing popularity of the MCU, coming off of IW, and also introducing a new exciting female superhero, I think it will beat $800M.

That might be too low. I'm pegging 750

I think it will easily top $700 M. Of course, it will beat JL.

I worry about the success of this domestically. I'm sure worldwide it will reach 700 million, but domestic I worry it may not clear 200 million.

It should easily gross over $200 million in the United States.

They better move the release up to July 6th everywhere. Releasing this a month later in some countries is insane. These days movies appear online so freaking fast, so nevermind the problem with asking people to wait, crucial scenes will be spoiled to people before they see the movie.

Also that championship ends mid July, what is the reasoning for postponing it to August? Ridiculous.

Hasn't been a problem with lots of other movies being released one or two months later in other countries.

People will show up regardless if they're interested.
