I could easily see Thor tanking, and while i dont see it tanking i dont think it will be as sucesfull as marvel will like.

I just think the comic book movies these daysthat are sucesfull these days are the ones that try and go for a more realistic tone(Batman,Iron Man,X-men etc)

Thor and Captain America won't do Iron Man numbers, especially not overseas. Thor should do well in Sweden

Then again, Iron Man really shouldn't have done Iron Man numbers.

I wouldn't say that. I think Captain America could most definitely reach Iron Man numbers.

Iron Man made nearly $600 million. Which other movie set during WWII made anywhere near that amount?

Saving Private Ryan made just under 500 million. I bet it's pretty damn close when adjusted for inflation.

The only movies from that huge list I want to see are Hangover 2, Harry Potter and X-Men. And I didn't even like Hangover that much...

I have zero interest in watching GL, Thor or Cap. America...but oh well, i haven't even watched Iron Man 2, but I guess it was highly successful.

That same environment won't be created again, so I can't see The Hangover 2 doing $460 million again. Kung Fu Panda will probably be #1 that weekend, and it will be a battle with Pirates for #2.
I agree. I have always said that those 09 movies are inflated because of the dog **** competition. But for those weekends, Panda is going to draw family and kids, Hangover will draw adults, MAYBE most teens settle for First Class. Fast Five also has a fanbase. You are losing every demographic regardless. It's just not gonna make money with all that crap sandwiching it.

That was a Spielberg/Hanks movie.

Chris Evans is hardly a box office draw. American's may flock to it because he is 'Captain America', but Superman is an iconic American superhero and that movie only just made $200 million. I can remember back during the X3 vs. Superman Returns days Supes fans were thinking it would do Spider-Man numbers because he is an American hero etc etc. It'll take more than patriotism to get Captain America anywhere near $600 million worldwide.

The latest Superman had the drawback of sucking.

Eh. I doubt EVERY movie on the list could suck. One of them has to come out as a good movie.

The fact is with so many proven franchises (some in other medias) coming out next year, it's going to be super hard for a lot of films to do Iron Man numbers.

Yeah I wouldn't put much stock in Cap yet... it's Johnston. Guy has been garbage since JP3. But hey, it will be a hit because "it's freaking Captain America!!!"...

I doubt this movie goes much over 200 million with the full summer and this being a prequel. Even if this movie is fantastic, I don't see it passing 250 at the most but I would guess 200.

It will be a hit, because it's Captain America. General audience's could give two ****ting cents who the behind the scenes people in a movie are, sadly.

How do you think those parody guys and Brett Ratner's films do so well at the box office?

Looking at all the big movies for next year, if Fox didn't have X-Men: First Class it would only have Rise of the Apes as a potential blockbuster, and I think Apes may be swallowed up be Transformers 3 anyway.

I can understand the hurry now.

Apes is a little dated of a franchise as much as I personally love it. The fact it's a prequel to the old series might hurt it's chances at success as well.

200? Wolverine couldn't even do that. Maybe if the reception is there, but I doubt it. I am thinking TIH numbers domestic, a little more adjusting to inflation.

The fact that they had to adjust the release because of TF3 taking the July 4th Holiday means it will probably be a farce. Unless there is another war going on, the general audience will not be compelled to go to the theaters with their flags waving.

Doesn't mean they shouldn't have had some foresight. Why wasn't this in production late 2009... or right after Avatar?

Inception hasn't made $600 million+ just because of Leonardo DiCaprio. 'Christopher Nolan, director of The Dark Knight' was a major selling point.

The parody movies don't do that well actually. They are made on the cheap and make less than $100 million.

Let's not forget word of mouth. There IS a chance of First Class actually being a great movie, guys.

Bryan Singer announced he would be directing at the Avatar premiere. Then there was 2 months of script development and what not before Singer had to leave, and they got Vaughn in May. If Singer didn't have Jack the Giant Killer Fox would have probably been in production in the summer as he could jump straight in, but because of Singer's commitments they had to spend time finding a new director before beginning pre-production.

They don't know Nolan's name though. I can guarantee you. They just know ''Oh yeah that guy that did Batman? Okay."

And only certain directors are notable for being able to sell a movie anyways, we're talking your Spielbergs, Cameron, Lucas, etc.

I will admit Nolan is probably on his way to being one of those directors, unless he makes a major misstep with Batman 3.

And when was Vaughn brought on? They needed the entire Spring and half the summer to finalize a script and get a director? It's not like they were looking at a 100 guys. They were going to go with a safe choice that had been involved previously. I think Rothman was jacking off with the excess cash from Avatar that he realized by July that, "Holy CRAP... we need tentpoles for next year... " No excuse for not moving on this sooner. But we'll have to see the final product before deciding.

Don't be a fool... Nolan is household at this point. Everyone knows it by now. It's not just a fan boy cult thing.

Wolverine couldn't do 200 because it was a terrible movie and was beat down by the majority of fans and critics. Word of mouth did not help that movie. This will make more than 134 million, TIH's numbers. If it is a good movie, it will make around 200 but definitely not more than 250.
