Default Iron Man BO thread

http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=15546

I mean common SONY wants to go head to head with IRON MAN. I think they forgot that MARVEL donated them spider-man.

Someone is gonna blink....only question is who? I will guess Iron Man will be moved, but if the new Bond fails or disappoints, then Bond probably will.

Especially since they cast that lame goofball. Still, now I'll make it a point NOT to pay to see Casino Royale. I hope it flops severely.

It will be interesting to see, Bond is a well established movie franchise and has a major advantage over Iron Man in name recognizion, it will all hinge on Casino Royale and how it does in theaters.

Looks like Irom Man doesn't have big competition.

James Bond comes out May 2008.

Iron Man comes out May 2007.

Connery and Brosnan are the only Bonds that matter.

This is zero competition for Iron Man. James Bond was always ok but never a blockbuster...ever and with this new boring ass actor...nobody is gonna watch that over Iron Man.

No matter how much you moan about it and no matter how much some might think Craig (a good actor btw) is not the right guy for the role. You can't deny that the Bond movies always do well even the not-so good ones.

Its been around since 1962 and has built-in fanbase.So always a force to be reckoned with. The fact that Sony are going for May 2008 shows that the mean business.

IMO this is a pretty biased opnion.
You go out on the street now and ask anyone what they'll watch and they are likely to tell you that they'll go and watch Bond.

^ Yeah but Craig is not the same attraction as Pierce. He's just...boring. He's a downgrade.

^I loved Pierce but that chapter is over now really. Craig is a good actor in my opnion and will win over a new fans just because he is different from Brosnan.More rugged. Women like that too.

Equal scepticism was levied against newcomer Roger Moore back then.

If Casino Royale does well at the box office, Iron Man will move to another release date. Count on it.

That will SUCK!!!!

This is MARVEL's first comic book movie they are doing themselves. They have to stick with the release date otherwise all studios will gang up against them and make sure all their movies are flop.

You know all the studios know that if they do their own movies, there is a good chance Fans will come in huge numbers to watch them and they could make tons of money from these movies.

RIVAL STUDIOS like Sony, Fox want to make sure they don't win this battle because of reason we all know!!!!!!

Give me a break. There's no reason to move away from a Craig helmed Bond. He has zero star power and the Bond franchise has never been a blockbuster type film. Iron Man will annihilate it.

At least make sense. Tell me how that scenerio even possible. LOL Nobody moves a release date right before it's released and Bond is not a threat to Iron Man.

there is over a year between casino royale and iron man, thats hardly "right before" release. the date could easily be changed. also, you may think that bond is no threat, but they are both films with similar demographic targets and both are sort of high tech spy type movies. iron man may beat bond, but certainly bond will gobble up some of the potential audience.

What do you mean "right before it's released"? Casino Royale comes out later this year, if it's a hit, that'll give plenty of time to move Iron Man to a different release date.

The Bond films have indeed been blockbusters. Die Another Day opened to $ 47 million in the US, and went on to $ 161 million domestic and $ 432 million worldwide. If Casino Royale proves to have as much commercial power, Marvel will move Iron Man.

You have a blind spot when it comes to Marvel films - you think they're all going to be all-conquering blockbuster hits, and that they'll vanquish any competition. That's not realistic.
