Default The G.I. Joe Box Office Prediction Thread

I know we have a b.o. possibility thread, but as of late, it's looking more and more like this will make a larger profit than we assumed. Right now I'm looking about about 80 mil for the weekend, similar to Fast and Furious.

Even at it's worst, as far as news was concerned, I knew the name alone would make this movie some serious cash. But with the commercials kicked into overdrive, and the studio paying off thousands of people for positive reviews(), I think it will be a big hit. I'm guessing $70-$80 mill for opening weekend.

200 million world wide, but under 100 million Domestic me thinks. I know the sneak preview I went to was sold out...but I still think it be a 30 million ish opening for it here. I think a sequel were only get greenlight if the movie opens to like 65+ here somehow.

With the positive reviews, lack of action-oriented movies out, the overall disappointment of the summer so far, excellent marketing and the name brand alone...I can see this movie having a very similar opening to Star Trek in the $70 mils range. That's just a guess, though.

im calling 68, the reviews have been great for a movie like this so far. bu i think they will go down when more people vote it.

i just dont see alot of people watching it, i dont know why, since this is probably the last summer blockbuster. and its gonna be a fun movie to watch, i really hope im wrong

Here is comingsoon.net's prediction for the weekend.

http://www.comingsoon.net/news/weeke...s.php?id=57727


They've been wrong before but, they are usually pretty accurate with their predictions. I'm not sure if Paramount would greenlight a sequel if the film falls into the projected domestic gross range. The worldwide gross will have to be fantastic for us to get a sequel.

I think it's legs are going to be s**t (but who knows Transformers 2 has been having a pretty good run) but it should open well seeing as how it's the last Summer blockbuster movie.

I have no faith in moviegoers after Transformers 2 so I'm going to predict an opening weekend of 55mil.

It's August so it has very little chance of opening with much more than that.

I personally would be surprised if it opened with less than 35mil though.

August always has that one big movie that you think would have been released earlier in summer but still manages to be a blockbuster. Mummy 3, Rush Hour 3, Superbad, etc.

I'm gonna say it makes 60 million opening weekend and finishes with 140-160 million. I think if the positive hype started a little earlier in the summer, it could go higher but that didn't happen. We'll see. If it somehow crawls to 200 million, I'll be VERY pleased though.

41% at rotten tomatoes right now and the mainstream critics still have not seen it yet. At this rate I wouldn't be surprised to see this film fall below 20% after all the reviews are in. I'm truly beginning to wonder if those rumors about Lorenzo and Stephen Sommers are true yet, I'm still seeing this on saturday regardless of the negative reviews.

I think it will make back what it cost to produce it and probably One hundred million more.

So I'd say ... 325 million. This is also before DVD sales and toys, etc.

Given audiences, who knows. I'll say about $200 million world wide.

Hopefully it make less than $100 million (hell, I want it to bomb Snakes on a Plane" hard). But that is me being a Negative Nancy.

To be honest, the first Transformers got horrendous reviews, but Ebert and a few random critics enjoyed it for what it was. The fact that your childhood property is coming to the screen somewhat intact is more than enough for a lot of the fanbase though. Don't forget a lot of older peeps were into G.I. Joe back in the day, so they'll go see it as well as the younger set.

You drank the haterade!

Seriously though, what do you have invested in this movie's failure? What will you gain if it is a flop? This ain't IMDB.
