Default The 'Transformers 3' Box Office Prediction Thread

It's early, but I figured since there's a thread like this in the Cap, GL, and Thor forums, it'd be worth having one like this here.

So what kind of box office numbers do you think TF3 will make?

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that the final domestic gross will fall somewhere into the $350-375 million range. Its biggest hinderance will of course be the mixed/less than stellar reaction to ROTF. I also don't think the absence of Megan Fox will have that much of an impact as suggested in some places.

400 mill on the dot

unlike some films it will have to deal with a stacked summer, however not as stacked as 2012.

the absence of fox will play well imo, for this is a franchise that needs more of the same but also needs something fresh. and the trailers will look somewhat fresh with a new love interest as opposed to another glamour shot of fox(who isn't so popular anymore) plus I'm looking forward to seeing how bay shoots chicago.

It will make less than the second movie.

I will guess $350 domestic. This thread should have a poll

It's obviously not going to make as much as the second film but thats not a problem because it will still be huge. I'm thinking 300 to 350mil.

so even if it sells less tickets then Tf2 then with 3D it could come close to Tf2 numbers.

right?

actually due to ticket sale inflation, this movies gross will be propotionately larger than the last, but that mostly depends on if reviewers bash the 3d or not.

I took into account 3D sales for my prediction. Next summer is jam packed full of big movies:

May 6 - Thor
Pirates 4 - May 20
Hangover 2 - May 26
Kung fu Panda 2 - May 26
X-Men Prequel - June 3
Green Lantern - June 17
Cars 2 - June 24
Transformers 3 - July 1

and here is the thing that is going to kill Transformers dead in the water

***Harry Potter - July 15
Captain America - July 22

That gives Transformers 2 weeks to haul in about $350 million if it is going to surpass the second and I just don't see it doing that...I am being nice and thinking it will make about $70 million after those two weeks...very nice.

Harry Potter will kill everything still in theatres when it opens.

I really don't see why everyone is thinking that potter will cause problems for tf 3 when the first and second tf movie also opened a week or two before a potter movie.
Yes worldwide potter outgrossed tf , but domestic tf won
2007:
tf1 319 million
hp ootp 292 million

2009
tf2 402 million
hp hbp 301 million

1) This is the last book of the Potter franchise.
2) Revenge of the Fallen will have left a bad taste in people's mouths, see Wolverine. Everyone hated X3 and Wolverine suffered for it. Wolverine barely beat X1's domestic take!

But Wolverine sucked. It didn't deserve to make as much as X2.

a better example would be The Incredible Hulk because it was a fairly decent movie that followed a movie that was unpopular with the public.

Revenge of the Fallen sucked and as you can see by these boards, people are weary to come back to get kicked in the balls again. Even if a movie sucks, see Spider-Man 3 for example, people will go out in droves because they think the movie is going to be awesome because the last film was awesome. This movie isn't coming off of an amazing second movie to get people hyped for the third film. So, my Wolverine example holds. The Spider-Man reboot won't make as much as SM2 or SM3 made because it is coming off of SM3.

How were the DVD/Blu-ray sales for it?

I'm just wondering how many people that make up the GA actually hated it compared to movie geeks like us.

It was the highest selling dvd of 2009.

That, obviously, means that the majority hated it.

Transformers sold over 13 million copies and Revenge of the Fallen sold just over 9 million. This is by year. In 2008 Transformers sold another 1.5 million copies. This year, Revenge of the Fallen isn't even in the top 50 selling dvds.
