Is it too late to swap the opening dates for Thor and Captain America?


And yes, I'm joking.

I hope Americans' feeling of patriotism and euphoria won't dissipate when July arrives.

If I were Marvel, I'd be thinking about putting a few Capt. America TV spots on right now, but without doing it in a heavy-handed fashion. Just creating an awareness for the Capt. America movie should be enough.

Since Bin Laden's taen a one way trip to hell, the studio execs must be revising and drawing up new projections for their profit and loss accounts right about now.

I say they start releasing Cap tv spots in the 3rd week of May, but rarely. Slowly but surely, increase the tv spots by June and by July...have it full force exactly like Thor has been in the last couple weeks.

This won't be forgotten by July I can tell you that... especially if al qaeda tries anything stupid in retaliation.

This is true. NY and Washington were attacked in the September and spider-man was released in may the following year and that was one film that galvanized the US as a country. So, I think emotions and patriotism wouldn't have dwindled by the time Cap comes out in July.

I think that Captain America is going to have a great box office run. This is going to be a summer where Americans feel great about their country again, and they couldn't have picked a better year for a Captain America movie other than July 4 2002, the year after the WTC attacks. The two ideal times for a movie like this are A) when the country needs to feel good about itself, and B) when the country does feel good about itself. The same year Americans and the world can celebrate a major victory in the war on terror, we will be getting a movie about a modern American folk hero kicking ass during the biggest war effort our country has ever participated in. Regardless of this movie's overseas grosses I'm sure it will be a huge hit at the domestic box office.

I think many people are exaggerating the foreign countries' hate for America. I'm a Filipino, and I'm a Cap addict, and my family and friends got really excited seeing the Cap trailer more than the X-Men trailer. I'm telling you, I feel that Cap will do more than Iron Man in its opening weekend, and if its quality is as good as Iron Man, then it will even do bigger numbers than Iron Man, domestically and internationally.

Personally, I think Captain Ameica is going to do fantastic at the box office. With what happened with Bin Laden and all, I think it's going to tie in fairly well with Cap.

It's being hard to me to imagine a great run for CA. I think it can cover its budget but not go way beyond that.
But I don't know how hyped the movie is in North America.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought of Osama's death helping Cap at the box office.

Just look at the difference that Star Trek(2009)had between domestic & international(something like two to one) and I think something of similar percentages in likely in store for Cap.

^That will probably be the case.

What is the movie's budget, by the way? 150 million like Star Trek, too?

As I said in the First Class thread, Captain America and First Class were the only two trailers to receive applause at the midnight showing of Thor I went to. Captain America received the most, and one guy in the back actually jokingly yelled, "We got Osama!" That said, hopefully the applause is indicative of everyone else's anticipation for the movie.

^I wouldn't use that as a barometer. I saw Thor at a midnight screening tonight and my audience had zero reaction to any of the trailers(Cap, X-Men, Cowboys, Pirates, Columbiana). Neither really indicate anything conclusive at this point.

Default Bin Laden's Death + Rise in National Patriotism =

Bigger box office for Captain America. I can see it now, with the dramatic recent spike in our nations patriotism due to the killing of Osama Bin Laden. I can see this as an important contributor to Captain's box office success. Agreed?

One thing important to remember is Marvel is doing a staggered release for Cap; It's not all coming out on the same date.

This will allow Cap to survive the Potter Monster internationally. Still, I worry about Cap in the box office.


I'm going with 200 million domestic and 130 million foreign.

This movie will blow the American public away. Can't wait for the onslaught of promotion for this movie. With the constant ads for X-Men and GL within the next month. After GL's release just watch how much time Cap will have to advertise as the last large CBM of the summer. Cowboys and Aliens won't hurt Cap and CA:FA will just cash in throughout August. Heed my words, this movie will make the most domestically for CBM's regardless of how it's reviewed.

Misread the poll question and thought it was only for domestic. I was a little suspicious as to why so many people had it making between $400 and 500 million. Oops. But I think it will probably come in slightly short of $200 million domestically. I really cannot even begin to guess how this will do internationally.

Do you think Cap will be as successful as Star Trek though? It can have a similar domestic/ ww breakdown and still be less successful.


I personally can't see Cap being as big as Star Trek was in the states.

I don't see any reason why Cap can't be as big in the states. ST had a serious stigma problem to overcome(trek being too damn nerdy in people's minds) that Cap won't have. I'm guessing $250M domestic and $150M overseas for a $400M WW cume. Not as good as Thor but then it doesn't have Thor's better release date plan coupled with it's breathing room from it's competition. Thor will likey be the #1 superhero film of 2011 WW. But I think Cap will take the domestic superhero crown.
