I think it will. Reviews so far indicate that this movie follows the Marvel formula, which equals crowd pleaser, which equals win. That and the fact that people are, at this point, chomping at the bit for any exciting new movie that isn't Gravity. Especially one from a fairly reliable brand like Marvel.

Anything $785M WW or above would make me happy though that's obviously not the height it requires to be successful. Really hoping for an above $100M OW and a $300M DOM total or better as well but WW #'s are king here.

I certainly think it's possible, I'm just not very certain yet I have to see how it opens first.

105 OW
260 DOM
450 OS
710 WW

There's a long, steep climb to 800 m and it will take some major momentum to get there.

I'm going to say 700-750 m for now.

Thinking you might be a little conservative on the OS. Didn't China alone add around 120 m to IM3? South Korea added another 65. (Any wonder why Korea was included in the red carpet tour?) That's 180m from just two countries alone. Latin America is another huge market. South America added in the neighborhood of 100 m. Mexico almost 60. When it was all said and done, total foreign BO for IM3 was over 800m. I expect T-TDW to pull in a decent fraction of that number, at least 600M. In which case...

We're actually looking at the possibility of 900 m WW.

And don't forget the final box office frontier, Japan. Add another 20m or so after the 2/14 release there.

IM3 and China is a completely different situation. One thing it was co produced by that country, have some added scenes with Chinese actors who have saved hero`s life by removing reactor and so it have a government support (and in China it`s very important). Another thing - people in China seems to like tech-porn type of movies like Transformers/Pacific Rim(they added 100+ mil to this movie and so sawed it from bomb status almost singlehandedly).

South Korea situation is strange right now- they opened pre-sales only on Sunday, 4 days before premier, posters just say "in October" without date so many people in GA may not know when it is coming exactly. Even people from the country do not understand the reason of such behavior.

So I would not count on asia like a safe bet in this case.

I'm fairly certain that Thor:TDW will make over 500 million overseas.

You're right. It would be foolish to dismiss any market as being a safe bet - BUT - big tent pole action flicks do tend to do well there, so we'll have to wait and see. Hoping T-TDW blows the lid off.

That S Korea news is ... odd though. And a little troubling.

I'm hoping it does $100M opening weekend. Here's hoping that the Avengers gives it the boost it needs.

Same here, although I'm hoping for more in the 115-120 M range.

Hello m8's i ve came acroos several posts in this forums after searching for movie grosses predictions and some other stuff and i ve noticed that most people dont have a clue about upcoming superhero movies gross potential or movie budgets etc etc etc.

Hence i ve decided to register so i could share my thoughts.

Now as far as Thor the Dark World i would say this :

US opening weekend : 100-150
US total : 275-350
worldwide total : 800-1050

above predictions are based on the buzz that surround ttdw and marvel movies as well. people where predicting the avengers will only make about 750 mill while they predicted the the dark knight rises would beat the avengers even though the nolan flick only generated 85% of social media buzz that the avengers generated. its clear to me that people underestimate some easy predictions while overeastime some other easy predictions as well. tdkr is as overrated a movie as tdk was and the 2nd nolanbat film only managed to beat the 1bill mark due to the buzz ledgers death created. sure it was a good movie but if ledger was alive the movie would only double the first batman at best putting it between 700-800 mil.

*im a MOVIE FAN unlike some nolan films fans so dont critisize me for saying tdk films were overrated cause they were* and i liked all three so dont give me any crap plz.

also tdkr was one of the 3 movies i went to see in cinemas in 2012 so plz no crap for saying nolan films are overrated (they are).

the avenegers beats nolan films period. its the superhero movie everyone wanted but it never materialized. next year we also get xmen dofp i cant wait for that too!

p.s. people are seem to be oblivious about just how much blockbuster movies cost nowdays. i was reading an article saying they cost about 130 each. that is hilarious cause there isnt a single one that doesnt cost way above 150mil actually.

a few examples

tdkr - 250mil
the avengers - 220mil
the amazing spider - man 225mil
men in black 3 - 215mil
iron man 2 & 3 - 200mil each
green lantern - 200+ mil
xmen 3 the last stand - 210mil
spider-man 3 - 258mil
transformers 2 - 200mil
the hobbit - 200mil
man of steel - 225mil
world war z - 190mil
star trek 2 id - 190mil

so as you can see most top blockbuster movies can have budgets high as 250 mil or even more in some cases. also note that studios dont give that info away easily and in many cases the numbers are even higher and also they dont include advertising/promoting costs so you do the math!

even second tier blockbuster movies cost more than 130 mill which the funny article i read suggested. its not the 90's or the 00's anymore. cgi is expensive. thats why animation movies cost more than 100 mil and in some cases around 200 or more. tangled cost over 250 due to some delays etc. sure there are some exceptions but the rule is hundreds of millions per movie !

keep in mind again that movie budgets are tough to break down in exact numbers. noone knows how much did avatar cost for example or which movies are in the top 10 of most expensive ones.

p.s.2 also studios only get about 50% (50% is the common rule although exceptions do exist) of the total worldwide gross from each movie. the other half goes to the cinemas. so in order to get their money back from a 100mil produced movie they need to have a 200mil total gross etc etc.

Deadline is reporting that TDW has made 8.2 million since its limited rollout in the foreign territories yesterday.
It is outpacing Thor.
Its begun guys.
And The Avengers Effect appears to still be very active.

8 M is what Thor 1 made in it's first TWO days out in the UK, Germany, and France. I know it's still kind of apples and oranges, but it's possible that we'll see foreign receipts double...which an exact double would be $534 M.
