Things look very good for a 30-32M run over the weekend. I've seen some project higher, but it looks to have legs.
So how's it's chances of making 200 mill domestically looking?

I will do that for movies that are not very recent, but ones that are relatively new, and ones like this which I enjoy talking with other people about, I prefer going with someone.

I don't normally post in the Thor forums, but I came here to say I LOVED this movie. It ticked all the boxes for me with it's humorous moments mixed with an overall serious tone. It had Great action, amazing production values, great casting, good story line and more. In short, it was Fun fun fun. The perfect summer movie. I've seen it twice and want to see it again.
I can't wait to see Zach Snyder's take on M.O.S. but Thor has set the bar pretty high for him imo. Oh, the soundtrack isn't bad either. This is going to be an excellent summer for superhero movies with GL and C.A. still to come.

Well his special abilities sounds cool to me, but his personality sounds pretty bland to me (imo) and I don't like his heroic gear either, I'm also not a martial arts fan either. I haven't read any Iron Fist comics before.

I'd say pretty Slim Box Office Mojo is tracking 30 million for this weekend which would make Thor around 110 or so And with Pirates and Hangover and Kung Fu Panda 2 coming i'd Say Thor will hit about 160 million domestically at least

It appears Priest is DOA but suddenly Bridesmaids is on my radar as a threat. I didn't look at the tracking but I'm going with my gut. I know the different demographic argument but there may be a lot of women talking their guys in to going to see that thing this weekend. All this "Hangover for women" talk has gotten my attention. Hopefully, Thor can blow by such things.

Thor does have great word of mouth going for it. I hope Paramount flexes and keeps Thor running longer to milk every drop.

Priest is tracking $16M this weekend, while Bridesmaids is tracking $19M. Hopefully Thor can take in another $30M this weekend to help it reach $170M domestic by the time it's run is done. That with around $275 overseas will hopefully get a sequel greenlight. I am doing my part and going again to see it!

I'm having a hard time believing that Bridesmaid is a better film than Thor, but then again, I haven't seen it (don't plan on it either).

what's wrong with that
I think Priest could hit $20M this weekend...but $50M??? Not a chance if it is tracking only $16M....

If Thor drops 55% this weekend then we are looking at around $30M. I think that would be a good hold for a superhero film. $10M Friday, $12M Saturday, $8M Sunday...I think that is possible.

Are you talking opening weekend, overall, and both with dvd sales/tv rights? Because it still won't make that much with everything.

Okay, I lied about that last sentence but Priest is gonna finish behind Bridesmaids and Thor. I don't see Priest winning the weekend at all.

Like I said, I even think that's a stretch.

I was just saying that in response to someone saying Bridesmaids is at 90%.

I won't be watching Bridesmaids, but it's about time a half decent comedy featuring mostly women was released.

Agreed! What the heck is wrong with you Blackman?! Priest is the new Jonah Hex. No way that movie makes $35M Domestically in it's entire run.
