If superman let a comedy movie with a 25 million dollar budget beat him at the box office , then he don't need to exist no more.

I guess we'll have a better idea if that The End of the World trailer gets over 20M views in a week or not.

Not anymore I don't. Look at June. There's damn near nothing else that looks to be formidable competition.

Well let's assume that World War Z and The End of the World both suck. Is it possible for MOS and Monsters University to make money coincidently?

How will it go at the BO? Making a guess here...

June 14-20
1 - MOS - $100M(?)
2 - The End of the World - $30M(?)

June 21-28
1 - Monsters University - ~$150M (there is no doubt this will happen)
2 - MOS - $75M
3 - World War Z - $30M
4 - The End of the World - $15M

That is best case scenario for MOS.

Dude it's a sequel to one of the most popular movies of all-time.

Edit: Toy story 3 grossed $167.6M in first week. http://boxofficemojo.com/news/?id=2835&p=.htm

I'm waiting to see how Monsters Inc 3D does at the box office, before i guess how big of an impact University will have.

It's a prequel for one (and those are always iffy) and its twelve years later. Also you must have missed the 3D reissue of Monsters Inc bombing. It only just happened.

It's a well-liked and successful film but one of the most popular of all-time? Stop.

Well I certainly think it is. And IMDb thinks so: http://www.imdb.com/chart/top

None of the 3D releases have been super successful. Not Titanic 3D's domestic, nor Star Wars Episode I. It is hardly a good yardstick for how popular the franchises are.

MU will do decent.Monster inc made 62 million in it's opening weekend in 2001.

No way it make 150 million in it's opening weekend tho.

Comparing MonstersUniversity to toy story.That's funny.Toy story is in another universe.

No way MU is making that much OW for the simple fact that its animated film, it'll be lucky to even hit a $100 million. Its a family film that is more spread out, not the fan rush we have for the mega openers. Toy Story 3 is one if not the most beloved and it couldn't approach that.

Also, MOS opening with $100 million will not make $75 million its second weekend. This is not gonna be the 2nd coming of Avatar.

If people like It, it will do well. Regardless budget or big brand name.

$50M? Is the drop-off usually 50%? I'm no expert. Ok so $150M for opening week of MU is too high? We all agree that MU will beat MOS in the BO though right? It should at least make $100M.

Is it unrealistic to think that MOS can pull off $150-200M in it's first week?

It's an open discussion. Nothing is really off-topic here unless it doesn't relate to MOS. Unless I'm mistaken, mods?

No, you're not. Keep talking box-office if you want. As long as it relates to Superman.

It depends on the interpretation. In the old days, “yellow sun” was an instantaneous “on switch.” When Supergirl made her first appearance in ’59, she flew out of her spaceship fully powered. For that matter, when Supes visited “red sun” worlds (including Krypton via time travel) they were an instant “off switch” (and back on again when he returned to Earth).

However, in STM it was strongly implied that superpowers took time to accumulate. In Smallville, this was explicit. (I’m not sure what direction the comics took during this period.)

Either one is fine, imo. The trick is to remain consistent with whatever interpretation is chosen. If it takes young Clark years to develop his abilities, then the Kryptonian criminal (who inevitably shows up) should face the same obstacle. Admittedly, a villain who has to wait a decade or so until he’s powerful enough to take on Supes isn’t that interesting. If that’s the concern, then instant “on-off” is the way to go.

That said, I predict MOS will fudge this (just as SII and Smallville did).

I can't tell if people are just being defensive of MOS and poo pooing MU, or people really think MOS will dominate in June at the BO. If it's the latter than I'm excited!

I think MOS will make more than MU, how much I don't know but I have a strong feeling it'll be this summers breakout hit.

I actually have some pretty high expectations because a lot of people that I've spoken with outside of the comic world seem to expect it to be like the Dark Knight with Superman. That's obviously not the case, but if people are expecting something like that then it's should have a strong opening. The rest is up to the quality of story.

You also have to consider that puberty and things like that may also play apart in how fast super powers develop. A kid Clark had strength and speed, but we never saw him fly in STM in SR he could jump really far if I remember correctly. So it is also possible that not only time under a yellow sun can strengthen powers, but the maturity of the Kryptonian as well.

That's how I understood it as Smallville explaining in the first couple of seasons that as Clark matured rather than spent more time he could develop additional/stronger powers etc.

IMO there are many ways to explain the power levels, difference in power levels or how they work in regards to Superman/Kryptonians. As you say it could be an instant "off/on," or time spent absorbing, and/or puberty.

I agree though, anyway they explain it needs to be consistent and not lead to a deus ex machina.
