Default 2017 Predictions (Place Your Bets)

Was so wrong last year outside of Deadpool (though even that BO I never saw coming)
Apparently, this year is already off to a far better start:
Justice League Dark
The Lego Batman Movie

and now Logan from early reviews

I'll formulate mine eventually, but let's get the ball rolling since this seems to interest people in other boards under the Gen. Movies section.

List of upcoming 2017 cbm's:
Logan
Wilson
GOTG 2
Teen Titans: Judas Contract
Wonder Woman
Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets
Spider-Man Homecoming
Coldest City
Kingsman: Golden Circle
Thor Ragnarok
Justice League

Well to start, I predict that Justice League ends up being a massive disappointment at the box office. Maybe even something in the $600-700 million range. I think BvS and all of this other bad publicity with the DCEU will have chased away a large portion of the audience, and it has no big hook because BvS already had the Trinity get together at the end to fight the villain. It also has more competition surrounding its release date. Basically, all the advantages that BvS had to get that huge opening don't exist for JL.

Logan--It's gonna be the best CBM of the year, 500+ million WW, X-Force moves forward with R rating. 95% RT

GOTG2--Better than the first but not by a large margin, filled with heart and fun. 1 billion WW possible, 89% RT

Wonder Woman--Decent movie, Gadot's acting brings it down but has a great supporting cast. 450-500 million WW tops, due to strong competition the weeks after.(Transformers, Cars 3 Despicable Me 3, The Mummy) 65% RT

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets--It's gonna be a weird fun movie but forgotten by the end of the year. 300 million WW, Dane and Cara dont have the star power of say, Lucy. 70% RT

Spider-Man Homecoming--The best Spider-Man movie since Spider-Man 2, not hard to do, 900 million WW. 85% RT

Kingsman: Golden Circle--A movie that goes even crazier than the original. Bloody and badass, 500 million WW. 88% RT

Thor Ragnarok--The best Thor movie, Cate Blanchett is the best Marvel villian so far, better than Guardians 2. 800 million WW. 90% RT

Justice League--Better than BvS, not as dark, fun new characters, but gets dragged down by mediocre and overstuffed story. 700 million WW. 56% RT

while i am bigger fan of X-Men that doesn't influence my predictions

box office

1:Spider-man:Homecoming
2:Guardians of the Galaxy vol 2
3:Justice League
4:Thor:Ragnavok
5:Wonder Woman
6:Logan

critical

1:Logan
2:Guardians of the galaxy Vol 2
3:Spider-man Homecoming
4:Thor:Ragnavok

6:Justice League

i am not liking what i am seeing on homecoming at all but i am not blind that it will be big hit and should do well with critics.Thor 3 should do better than dark world both at box office and critics with hulk in film.with DC i think Justice league makes more money but wonder is liked a bit better by critics.

I like most of these predictions. The main thing I'm skeptical about is Thor 3 being better than Guardians 2, but it is possible.

Okay, now I'll take those odds.....with a few provisos.

1) I agree that Ragnarok will probably end up the best Thor movie, but even an actress of Cate's quality does not guarantee a great villain ( Kingdom of the Crystal Skull anyone ? ). Also, while Hemsworth is a solid and likeable Thor, Loki will steal the show although even he will get upstaged by the Cumberbatch effect.

I can't see it being better than GOTG 2, which has a much better first film to build on. I mean, "We are Groot " is a regconizable pop culture phrase, anyone remember anything anybody said in either Thor film ? Probably not.


2) Kingsman will be interesting, as Matthew Vaughn generally doesn't do sequels, will he strike gold a second time? I'm betting, yes, but the glut of other cbms will make it tough to shine ( Kingsman came out well before GOTG in 2014, but Golden Circle comes out in September, and a lot of cbms will go before it to take the steam out of the market)

3) Will Logan live up to the hype, I hope so, very few cbms have.

4) I totally agree with the above predictions for WW and JL. I still don't think GG has the charisma to make WW an engaging character. Sure she's badass, but WW needs to be more than that to carry the film.

JL ? Well, if Snyder learns from B v S it could be a good movie. Not a great movie, because I don't think Zach has got a great movie in him. Man of Steel split fans and critics down the middle almost 50/50, people seemed to either love it or hate it. I loved it, but can see why the other half hated it - I think that's as close as Snyder's going to get to greatness (yes, Watchmen had better reviews, but wasn't as ballsy as MoS, because all Snyder did was stick to the original story reasonably faithfully, I mean it's tough to go totally wrong when you're following arguably the greatest comic book story of all time).
Anyway, if JL a decent movie, scores over 70% on RT and makes more than 600 mill, I'll consider it a huge success.

If he's well written and given some good comic relief lines (think, Drax the Destroyer) Aquaman could be the breakout character. Hope Batfleck doesn't kill too many people in this one (Parademons don't count).



5) Agree on Spider Man:Homecoming.
After Civil War I have to say that Tom Holland really captures Peter Parker the way I imagined him as both the lovable nerd and the webslinging wise-ass hero. With Keaton and Tomei on good form, plus RDJ in the mix, this really could be the best Spider Man film, period ! If so, 900 mil may not be unrealistic.

6) GOTG 2: Could it be better than the first ? After Age of Ultron was good but fell short of greatness, I'm sketpical. But the base of loveable characters is certainly there. The key is the story. In GOTG the story is incredibly simple.....get the orb. If GOTG 2 keeps it simple and builds on the characters its going to be a winner, because its characters that carry cbms, not the plot
What's the plot of Deadpool ? Not all that complicated, but Reynolds performance carries the whole thing.

If GOTG 2 is actually superior to the original, then a billion doesn't sound wrong at all.


Cheers.

Logan:
(My rating prediction - 9.0/10)
(Rotten tomato prediction - 89% fresh)
(Worldwide box office - $600 million)
Can't say much considering how close the movie is. But I will say I highly doubt this is the last time we see Hugh Jackman in the role. Ryan Reynolds will only have to ask him nicely if he wanted to see Hugh in a teamup film.

Guardians vol. 2:
(My rating prediction - 9.0/10)
(Rotten tomato prediction - 92% fresh)
(Worldwide box office - $1.2 billion)
I predict it will live up to the expectations set by the first. I'm banking on a serious cameo from the other films. Be that Stark, Hulk, Thor or another Asgardian. Guessing the after credits will tease Thor or Spider-man. Really hard to say because both films have already been teased (by Doctor Strange and Civil War respectively). Actually maybe it'll just be Infinity War.

Wonder Woman:
(My rating prediction - 7.0/10)
(Rotten tomato prediction - 62% fresh)
(Worldwide box office - $750 million)
I think this movie will be way less good than it should be. Its got great talent and a great theme song, and Wonder Woman is the only part of BvS people liked. But I think it will probably be unfortunately average. But still the best female-led CBM we've seen.

Spider-Man: Homecoming:

(My rating prediction - 8.0/10)
(Rotten tomato prediction - 88% fresh)
(Worldwide box office - $900 million)
I don't expect this movie will be bad. I just have no idea what to expect. It's hard to say I'll like it more than the other Spidey flicks, but I know I'll enjoy it. I'm betting its got some serious things I dont like. (lack of important characters, too much Stark, idk.)

Thor Ragnarok:
(My rating prediction - 7.5/10)
(Rotten tomato prediction - 82% fresh)
(Worldwide box office - $700 million)
No Thor movie has impressed me, so guessing that high of a rating is a longshot. I'm hoping for a lot more than I've been given to this point. But I do foresee I'll enjoy it more than the previous installments.

Justice League:
(My rating prediction - 6.0/10)
(Rotten tomato prediction - 53% rotten)
(Worldwide box office - $850 million)
I have no faith in this movie. Prove me wrong Snyder.

Logan-- RT score: 95%. [Box-office 500m worldwide]. Despite the R-rating, Good wom is going to give this movie great legs, combined with the fact that this is going to be Jackman's swan song, I see it surpassing expectations in a similar vein to Deadpool.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2-- RT score 93%. [Box-office 1.1 Billion worldwide]. This movie is going to build on the goodwill & success of the first movie and use that momentum to pass the 1 Bil milestone, calling it now. Repeat value is going to be a big factor too since the first movie is immensely rewatchable.

Wonder Woman-- RT score 60/75%. [Box-office 500m worldwide]. I'm honestly not sure about this movie. I haven't seen any of Patty Jenkins' films besides Thor but I've heard from others that she's a really good director. I'm also not 100% sure about Gal Gadot's ability to carry the film as she has come off a little stiff in the trailers so far. That's going to tear into the reception for the film and be a problem for critics if she's not good. On a more positive note-- being the first Wonder Woman movie is certainly going to work in it's favor.

Spider-Man: Homecoming-- RT score 87%. [Box-office 770m worldwide]
Oh lord, here's the big one, I don't see this movie hitting 1 billion. There are a lot of things that could stop it from breaking 1 bil. For one, Spider-Man reboot fatigue is a thing and it's absolutely going to have an effect on this movie being the third reboot in 4 years even though it's set in the MCU. Second, there's going to be a lot of elements from previous movies rehashed that we've seen before, particularly from the Raimi films. Some shot-for-shot redos. Critics are going to take note of this and it's either going to have a negative effect or a positive effect. Some in this thread are saying it's going to go top Spider-Man 2 & I don't see that happening for a plethora of reasons.. It will be a very good Spider-Man film but, the missing key elements that made Spider-Man 2 so powerful with taking key moments from the Comic Book story line and powerful themes are missing in the same sense that the Amazing Spider-Man films had an issue with. One of the MANY reasons as to why Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 2 is very difficult to surpass is because of the Powerful messages of inspirations like Aunt May's "I Believe There's a Hero in All of Us" speech that relates to everyday real heroes of the world that we live in who sacrifice their own lives so that we may live. The Peter Parker Luck Curse from the comics, The "Spider-Man No More" storyline. People can complain all they want about how a character wasn't portrayed 100% to the original source material But at least the character traits weren't completely changed and mixed with others and that is the closest you will get compared to what's coming with Homecoming.


Tony Stark's involvement is going to be a major positive selling point for the general audience and the MCU stuff is going to draw in MCU fans. Vulture could be a hit as well. And if they give Tom the right material as an actor, he COULD become the best Spider-Man. Overall, I see this movie making slightly more than the first TASM movie. Similarly to X-Men First Class didn't make as much because the damaging rep of Wolverine Origins (TASM2) but DOFP went on to become the highest grossing X film ever. The sequel to Homecoming is what I'll think will break 1 billion.


Thor Ragnarok--RT score 92%. [Box-office $800m]
I think this film is going to draw people in simply for the fact that it's Thor & Hulk together on a cosmic roadtrip epic with heart, action & comedy. These are the things that drew people to GOTG. Plus although I haven't seen any work, he seems to have a really good track record & charm. It's going to be big




Justice League-- RT score 45%.[Box-office 700-800m] Sorry but I think the fallout from Batman vs Superman is going to have an effect on this film. Snyder is a polarizing director for many critics and there just hasn't been enough goodwill buildup for JL to warrant a huge box-office gross like WB is hoping it'll be. Plus BvS spoiled the novelty of DC heroes teaming up with the final Doomsday battle. The movie being about the Justice League together will not be enough to carry the film at the Box-office. It has to be a decent film at the very least.

Anyway, I'm predicting that this will be the best year of superhero films. People are comparing Logan to TDK and Mcu could have three great films, Spider-Man being the one I'm most unsure about. That's already four awesome films + Lego Batman.

Ok so last year (WW / Dom):

MCU

Cap - 1,153 / 408
Dr.S - 673 / 232

WB

BvS - 873 / 330
SS - 745 / 325

Fox

X:A - 543 / 155
Deadpool - 783 / 363

So I'm betting this year

MCU

GoTG - 1 Billion / 400M - Huge Opening Weekend. Maybe some fall-off after that but this one has a lot of good buzz. And there's a lot of Groot pop culture stuff right now. The soundtrack could also help this tremendously.
Thor 3 - 750M / 300M - Thor has been questionable. But this one is a major lead in to IFW, and has Hulk. Time of year could hurt it though. I'd rather have seen this get the August date.
SM:H - 900M - 1 Billion / 400M - Spider-man is huge. Both TASM movies scored 700-750. That was without the MCU and with a skeptical fan base. While there are still some items people are concerned about this is new iteration is still tied into the MCU which means people will go see it. If only for the after credits. 1B I think is the line on this one. Again this Spider-man being the MCU and having Ironman is what I think drowns out some of the fatigue.

WB

WW - 700 / 275 - It has an uphill battle for a couple reasons. But it's the first time we've seen this character on the Big Screen. Plus she wasn't the worst part of BvS. If she does well JL does better.
JL - 650 / 230 - BvS left a fan base divided, and it won't get the pent up demand like BvS did for an opening. These numbers may go up if WW does well. Quality wise though I'm thinking this will again be divisive of the fan base. If only because of the status BvS left the universe in.

Fox

Logan - 650 / 250 - It's got a lot of positive buzz and has been stated that it'll be Jackman's last outing. I see a good opening weekend in it's future.

Critical:

1) Logan (95%)
2) Guardians of the Galaxy 2 (89%-93%)
3) Spider-Man: Homecoming (85%-89%)
4) Thor: Ragnarok (79%-83%)
5) Wonder Woman (35%-55%)
6) Justice League (20%-40%)

Hoping better for the DCEU, but those numbers are right up their alley. I do predict that the extended version of Justice League will get a little bit better reception. To quote the immortal words, "you can't polish a turd, but you can roll it in glitter".

Since I'm going to have to skip Logan obviously:

- GOTG2 largely lives up to the first film. I'm not quite sure if it'll be seen as an improving on its predecessor, but that could happen. It'll be one the top hits at the box office for the year.

- Wonder Woman is a bit of mystery right now to me given DC's recent track record, but Jenkins seems to be passionate about it. I'm thinking that it'll be a step in the right direction for DC and be the first DCEU film to get a "fresh" score on Rotten Tomatoes, but I can't shake the feeling that there will be something about it that keeps it from reaching its full potential. Regardless, I expect it will be a solid success box office wise.

- I think Spider-Man: Homecoming will be generally well-received but hampered a bit at the box office due to franchise fatigue. I think it'll have to do what Batman Begins did 12 years ago with that franchise of having to rebuild good will toward the character.

- Thor: Ragnorok is likewise well-received. Depending on how GOTG2 turns out, I could see this being regarded as the best MCU film of the year. The inclusion of the Hulk and strong legs make it the highest-grossing solo Thor film.

- Justice League will be a typical Zack Snyder affair, with him attempting to lighten up the mood. It is a critical disaster and underperforms at the box office, finally giving WB the courage to dump him.

Those are low numbers. I certainly predict more than that for both.

Quickly:

GUARDIANS: I'm going to say what I said before Age of Ultron came out: prepare yourselves, because this won't be the instant classic that the first one was.

Box office: $850 million

Critical reception: 80%

WONDER WOMAN: This movie, like Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, will be serviceable enough to please the fanboys but too bland to make most people care. Unfortunately at this stage, "serviceable" will be enough to keep the DCEU running for a few years longer.

Box office: $800 million

Critical reception: 65%

SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING: This is it, folks. My most anticipated film not only of 2017, but possibly of all time. Spider-man was my first love and my doorway into loving superheroes and the Marvel universe, so this is a big deal for me. Unfortunately I think Sony has soured the well and hampered this from reaching it's full potential; no matter how much critics and fans may like it, this won't be instantly iconic like the first two Raimi films were. However, it will be profitable.

Box office: $900 million

Critical reception: 70%

THOR: RAGNORAK: I genuinely have no idea how this will turn out, I just have a strong feeling that I'm going to love it.

Box office: $800 million

Critical reception: 80%

JUSTICE LEAGUE: I don't care.

Box office: $900 million

Critical reception: 55%

At this stage, I'm not sure if I think any of these movies will hit a billion.

I'm gonna guess SMH is anywhere from 70s to 80s on RT. I'll predict it'll make good money and have good reception but certainly not great. Negatives against it are fatigue and same 'ol story.

Quickly:

GUARDIANS: I'm going to say what I said before Age of Ultron came out: prepare yourselves, because this won't be the instant classic that the first one was.

Box office: $850 million

Critical reception: 80%
Believe it or not, this the one time I want to be an MCU fanboy and really believe in this one. I could kind of tell from the marketing that AOU would be lackluster (I didn't realize I'd go on to actually hate it like I did), while GOTG2 trailers have been funny. Also, Gunn's style is so winning he can get away with being lax on plot unlike a lot of his contemporaries.... but you might still be right about it not being as good as the first.

Quote:
WONDER WOMAN: This movie, like Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, will be serviceable enough to please the fanboys but too bland to make most people care. Unfortunately at this stage, "serviceable" will be enough to keep the DCEU running for a few years longer.

Box office: $800 million

Critical reception: 65%
If Gadot is wooden and it is just serviceable... we'll see. I think X-Men: Apocalypse was serviceable. Then again, we have had 6-9 of those suckers depending how you count. WW is a first, so that sounds about right, but I would lower the box office to $750 million due to fierce competition.

Pretty much, albeit I'd also lower the box office to maybe $800 million. They need to "rebuild" brand loyalty.

Put the box office at $700 million but raise the critical reception to 90%. I'm not sure I'd love it... but I suspect critics will enjoy it.

Not sure about $900 million. It will need good word of mouth for that to happen. But yeah, overall I think you have very good predictions.

In response to Flint....

I'd love JL to hit a billion and WW do say 700-800 worldwide BUT those are my 'realistic' estimations based on a general audience that clearly weren't too fussed on Batman v Superman and won't be coming back for more, a 'core' audience too who many disliked it as well that has clearly influenced their future watching choice of the DCEU, I'd love and very much hope the numbers are higher and agree I've set the 'bar' low but sadly, I think they are realistic figures.

Okay so I'll admit I was about 80% wrong last year - and when I was wrong, I was totally wrong.

Logan: no prediction necessary, saw it, loved it, heartbreaking and hopefully it will get the recognition it deserves as one of the best cbms of all time.

GOTG 2: Okay, this is my most anticipated film of the year. I'd love it to live up to the first film, but given how much I loved GOTG I can't quite see it. I put GOTG on nearly the same level as Star Wars (1977) and way above any Star Wars stuff made this century.

RT = 85%

All in all it will be a great fun movie, but won't quite be as successful as GOTG, although in pure financial terms I think it will easily hit $750 mil.
Hope I am totally wrong about this one - and if it's actually better than the first film, I will lose my mind with joy.


WONDER WOMAN: As many have said, a mystery. To be honest I don't think Gal Gadot has the acting chops to carry the lead - I mean Cumberbatch as Dr Strange was a very safe bet, given he's got the look and is among the best british actors of his generation.
To me, just having the look isn't enough, particularly as WW is a tough, but deep character - I think this casting error is going to diminsh what otherwise looks like a pretty solid action packed film.

RT = 60-70% box office = $500 mil.


JUSTICE LEAGUE: Well, Batman v Superman pretty much killed off any excitement I had about this one. Unless Snyder takes a complete 180 degree turn in terms of tone and execution it will struggle to even be as good as Man f Steel.
The novelty of seeing the JL assemble will wear off pretty fast if the rest of the film is a big drag. I do think that Ezra Miller's Flash and Jason Momoa's aquaman will be the film's saving grace.

RT = 55% which would be a big improvement from B v S , and both critics and fans alike are going to be skeptical going into this one.

box office= People will be interested enough to have a go, so I bet about $ 600 million.


SPIDER MAN: HOMECOMING.
Okay, this is a dark horse, it has the potential to be the best spider man film ever and blow away every other cbm this year (except maybe Logan) or be sucked down by teen angst and just be a drag.

Now given that even with his tiny appearance in Civil War Tom Holland is still my favorite Spider Man, and Michael keaton is looking pretty nasty as Vulture, well I think this one already has some great elements -but will the rest of the cast and story hold up ? I think Holland really brings something fresh and special to the role, if the rest of the film is even half decent it will be a huge success.

RT ??????? if it lives up to its promise 90%

Box Office: it's Spider Man, so minimum $ 600 up to maybe $ 1
billion if it's both kid and adult friendly.



THOR RAGNAROK

Okay, this is an even darker horse, mostly because Taika Waititi isn't known for big budget action films. Sure he's got a great sense of humour, and MCU Thor has been quite a fun character, but will he go too far ?

I quite liked Thor TDW, but have a lot of misgivings about this one.

Still, I didn't think Scott Derrickson could pull off Dr Strange, but it was amazing.

Hope I'm wrong but my prediction is............

RT: 75% fun but kind of misses the point of superhero films

Box office: hmmm..... I think Dr Strange would have made a lot more money if it had been released earlier in the year, with a bit less competition, so I think the late release date will slow things down at the box office - maybe $ 500-600 million ( it is Thor after all).


We'll see I guess. Cheers.
