I saw 2 Guns (on Wolverine's ticket ) and it really is a brain damaged film. As terrible as most of the critics are saying. I love Denzel but what was he thinking with this one? Word of mouth will not be kind to it.

Man, those foreign numbers are great. FC is the highest foreign gross for this series after X3, and this will top that.

This may be insignificant, but both First Class and Wolverine had a foreign setting and feel to their movies. From Poland, Switzerland, England, Soviet Union/Russia and Argentina in First Class and now Japan and Canada in The Wolverine. That may be a factor as to why it appeals to people worldwide as well.

Not bad, it really is doing well overseas, I may have been conservative with my estimate.

And it hasn't opened in Japan yet.

I read that the reason the movie isn't opening until September is because this week is the anniversary of the Nagasaki bombing, so releasing it now seemed inappropriate.

Also, I got straight A's in history and should have realized that before I read it in Variety.

Well theres no way to qualify or unqualify yet as the film is not out in Japan for a while, but it might be a small selling point to play on from a marketing perspective, it may not seem like a big deal to us Western audiences but do Asians and Eastern cultures get fair treatment and portrayal in comic book movies to date?

I would say not yet.

It's a shame the superior marvel movie is making the inferior money.

How long more is this in theatres?

Quote:
After opening on top last weekend, The Wolverine took second place this weekend with an estimated $21.7 million. Its 59 percent drop was about in line with Captain America: The First Avenger—which opened at the same time in 2011—and was significantly better than X-Men Origins: Wolverine (69 percent decline). Through 10 days, The Wolverine has earned $95 million, and it remains on track for a final tally around $140 million.

The wolverine has already broken even worldwide.It may even end up as top X-men film
overseas which bodes very well for DOFP.for wolverine solo film to do so well just imagine
what a full X-Men film can do.

Good to see, especially with some of the negativity thrown at in the first week, glad its going to be respectable totals in the end even if the domestic is not what we'd like.

Its pretty positive stuff

My guess for 300-400 WW might end up quite right.

I've never done box office guessing like this before, but with a pretty spot on MoS guess and now maybe Wolverine too, I seem to have at least beginners luck with it.
