Well, they haven't CONFIRMED it. A Russian website said it had heard it. But there's been no official confirmation as far as I know.

It wouldn't surprise me though. Films need all the gimmicks possible these days - 3D and/or IMAX and superpowered marketing.

I have no problem with them releasing a 3D version of any of the X-Men films. People still have a choice of 2D or 3D, normal screen or giant screen/IMAX.

It should do, yes. Especially if The Wolverine has a link to DoFP, and is accompanied by a trailer for DoFP.

Not sure by what difference, but it has potential to be big. Maybe not like Avengers or Dark knight, but hopefully closer to Amazing Spiderman.
Even with all that competition on it's heels?

Amazing Spider-man's first 3 days were 75 mill. during 4th of July, and didn't have the issues like the Hobbit 3 bothering them until Dark Knight Rises 2 weeks later.

DOFP has H3 to compete with on the same exact day and GotG 2weeks later. Not to mention what comes out the week before.

So I don't know if this will be the best box office for them....

DoFP isn't a reboot.

Neither was First Class but it never made 75 mill in it's first 3 days.

Plus unlike Spider-man giving X-men a reboot wouldn't hurt it as much.

It was a reboot in a sense that it had a completely new cast and a majority of unrecognizable characters.

Nah. It has a giant MARVEL above the title, so it'll be fine.

Okay....

It still made 20 million more than FC during it's first 3 days of release and that's despite some people not wanting to see a SM reboot.

What am I missing here....?

I'm not sure what point you're trying to make?

Spider-Man is a massive franchise. It was then rebooted with much of the same characters. The reboot didn't do gangbusters but it was still a huge success, because it's still Spider-Man.


X-Men has never been in the same league. So taking away everything people are familiar with (the characters AND their respective actors) obviously it's going to do as well.




DoFP is an attempt to bring X-Men in that league.

to top previous movies wont be that hard at all, its not like X3 made 600 millions, lol.

DOFP could make 500 and it would already be the highest sequel.

But I feel like the kind of show they will bring, more the two casts and good reception of First Class and hopefully The Wolverine will generate something bigger than some fans expect.

again, Im not saying 1 billion, but 600-700 or even more? there's a big chance.

I can definitely see Imax or AVX for the movie but I still think 3D will be out. Figures show that studios rarely ever do better than "break even" on the cost of producing a 3D movie vs the increased ticket price. Not to mention, 3D is a gimmick that is dying fast with general audiences. It used to be a bonus but now it seems to be a feature that people will go out of their way to avoid. The cons (headaches, higher ticket prices, dim colors on post-production 3D movies, doubling edges for bespectacled audience members) outweigh the pros (.......somewhat feeling more engaged in the action onscreen? I suppose?).

SMH, now I know how Spider-man feels when he reads the Daily Bugle. LOL!

I think X3's giant opening showed that the X-Men can enter that league with the right movie. X3 was just not that movie. I really hope this movie works, but I still have my doubts (my opinion of the Singer movies is that they're good, but flawed...I felt FC was so much better). I am happy this film is embracing a more comic book-esque feel for the X-Men (since X1 and X2 were more grounded films), but I still reserve my judgement. I think this has awesome potential, but this film needs so much care in juggling the many stories it will have to include. Given how X2 shoves Cyclops to the side (amongst other things), and the first 3 X-films had a major Wolverine bias, I am still skeptical about it being properly juggled. I really feel Vaughn showed more skill at that.

I hope Singer can deliver. I want this film to work.But, SR and other things have me skeptical.

As much as I'm anticipating a great film from Singer, I think 550 m ww is the best case scenario for this. I'll predict between 450-500m.

Which would still be an awesome outcome. But if it's really really good; word-of-mouth should help it tremendously.

Quick question, is Ralph Winter no longer producing these movies with Donner? I haven't seen his name involved with The Wolverine or DOFP. And he wasn't involved in First Class

He was a producer on XMO: Wolverine but hasn't been involved in any X-Men projects since then. He must have moved on from the franchise.

I agree with you that the film needs to show much more balance between characters (which would be easier to do if there was not so many characters returning) but to say Vaughn handled this better is where I disagree with you.

Using X2 as an example despite Singer focusing more on wolverine, he still managed to juggle the rest of the ensemble cast quite well with a fe exceptions of course (Cyclops and Storm come to mind). Each character got their own individual arc that was developed throughout the movie. Jean(phoenix rising) Pyro (betraying the xmen) Ice Man (accepting his mutant background and his relationship with Rogue) Rogue (relationship with Ice Man) Magneto (untrustworthy ally, hidden agenda) even mystique got an upgraded character arc. and there are many more Stryker, Nightcrawler, Xavier, etc

On the other hand despite the fact that Vaughn arguably had a smaller amount of characters to juggle around. he focuses more on Eric and Charles, with the only other characters developed being Raven and Hank.
The rest of the X-Men, Banshee, Havok, Darwin were not developed and had no individual story arc.
Emma - was basically eye candy. And Shaw was basically a generic villain. But Azazel, Riptide, Angel salvadore and the aforementioned banshee, havok, and darwin could have easily been replaced and the story would not have suffered. Which should not be the case with the X-Men each charcacter is unique and their personality is what makes them an individual not their powers.

I mean because Angel isn't developed her betrayal does not have the same impact as Pyro's. Because Darwin has no character arc his death doesn't resonate as much as Jean's or Xavier's.
