Boxofficemojo predicted that Thor won't hit $500M Overseas.... Wow, I thought $500M was the ceiling for this movie.

I hope we see more blockbusters in the winter. When summer is over it feels like an eternity for next wave of blockbusters to roll around again.
I'm sooo glad they moved Thor to the winter to give me something to look forward to after summer was over.

Yes, I like their every 6 months roll out strategy. The only big wait'll be the 10 months between GOTG and TA:AoU. And fall and winter which are the dead zones have been shrunk to only consisting of 2 months each(I myself watch new TV shows during these seasons) so that's not so bad having 2/3 of the year as fair game for releases. It's better than most sports seasons get.

It might hit $500M OS but I agree that's around where the ceiling is(give or take $50M).

6 months each Marvel movie is an excellent strategy especially with non Marvel Studios Marvel movies thrown into the mix.

This thing will get between 650-750 million total. Which is kind of amazing.

A ceiling is the best case scenario. Rarely do movies hit their ceiling.

Read the "Around the World Round-Up" section in the front page article.

Quote:
Across those eight markets, Thor 2 was up on average around 27 percent from the first Thor. This was also a little over half as much as Iron Man 3, which is the first of the Avengers follow-ups. This data suggests that Thor: The Dark World isn't going to be able to make it to $500 million overseas.

Thor 2 also opened up in 36 territories unlike Iron Man 3's 42 territories, which is some how being ignored.

It's not that big of a difference because it didn't miss major markets.

Um... it hasn't opened in China yet. I think that qualifies as a fairly major market these days.

Also hasn't opened in Italy and Japan. Also not exactly minor markets.

I don't think it will also hit $500 M, but right now, there's a possibility for $400 M so thats not bad.

I don't care, it's still 6 less markets than Iron Man 3 opened up to so it should be taken into consideration.

Well TA grossed 85m in China alone. Even half this would be significant.

If Iron Man 3 open its first week in China, Italy or Japan? I am going to be honest, I was expecting a bit more considering the release date. It has no competition. Hopefully the US numbers see an even nicer bump.

Don't forget that Iron Man 3 grossed 120 million in China alone.

Did they do the kind of advertising they did for IM3 in Russia, China, etc? They made a real push with IM3.

Probably not since Iron Man 3 had large ties to China, but I'm sure it'll still get a significant.push there.. Marvel/Disney did make a big deal about Thor 2 being the last foreign film to be released in China for 2013.

I hope Thor 2 can make around 60-70 million in China, it may even get close to what The Avengers made which is the 80+ range.

The thing about foreign numbers, outside of the big markets, they seem to have steep drop offs.

It will be interesting. What did the first Thor do in China? Did it even open in China?

China aside, the other 4 combined made about 71m for IM3. Do you expect a much bigger number?

I know for certain it's not going to make as much as IM3's China gross, but I'm not sure about the other 4 hopefully atleast 70% of IM3 made
