As some people said down in the Wolverine forum, if TW can make $400m+ WW, then DOFP should be able to hit $600m at least. I'd be willing to say $700m for now.

I stink at predicting numbers, but i think worldwide it could get around 600m-700m. I voted for 700m, i'll go with my highest estimate

I think TW did that mostly from OS expansion. It didn't really light the world on fire domestically. And there's probably a high degree of overlap between the 2 sub-franchises so I don't think you'll see such a huge jump there. Maybe DOFP makes 110-115%of the OS number that TW did. So what's going to really make the difference is domestic. Let's say it does another $100M DOM over what TW did, which is believable, then you're still looking at mid $500M WW range or so with $600M as a good number for a ceiling.

agree about TW comparison. Internationally, DOFP will do huge numbers, its looking more likely now.

Domestically I bet it will be pretty close to 300 and maybe more (thats my bet).

I don't see how it goes anywhere near $300M DOM.

well, if Man of steel came that close, being the first movie, and after Superman returns low numbers.

DOFP with such an IMPRESSIVE cast can really do that, and even more.

Somewhere in the $700-800 million neighborhood is where I'm placing my bet. I think there's also a chance the stars could align with a great promotion campaign from Fox (awesome trailers, commercials, posters, etc.), great reviews, hype, word of mouth, and so on... could lead to a $900 million gross. Difficult thing to predict a year ahead or even one week ahead of the premiere, but it's always fun to see the predictions of others.

yeah, thats the key.

If the promotion is really really heavy, and most importantly, the movie really impressed the audience and leads to a big word of mouth, this could reach more than 800. The potential is really there.

So it all depends on the promotion and word of mouth

I've never put much stock in adjusted numbers. Too many variables left unaccounted for so that it ends up being apples and oranges.

I was right with my prediction for The Wolverine
Quote:
Domestic - 120 to 160
Worldwide - 400 to 450
Hopefully I'll be right with my prediction for DOFP too.
Quote:
Domestic -235 to 280
Worldwide - 700 to 750
And obviously DOFP is gonna get a China release too just like The Wolverine and since the cast is bigger, I expect a bigger increase for DOFP.

I'm going to go with 700-800 million worldwide. If Wolverine made more than 400 I'm pretty sure Days of Future Past can almost double it being such a big production with a humongous list of cast members and characters -some of them being way more famous than when they started- plus the whole concept of merging the two timelines/franchises plus the return of Singer or even the 3D factor.

I would go for more but since the X-men movies don't have the best box office track record I'm sticking to something more grounded for now. Wouldn't be surprised if it did more though. I guess it all comes down to promotion which so far it's going really well and word to mouth which depends of course on how good the film will end up being.

I'm really curious to see how promotion of the sentinels plays with the general audience. I think a lot of people have no idea what's coming.

They would have to promote this as filmed in Native 3D, not just post-converted. The (international) audience seems to dig that.

It fills me with glee, though, that finally Fox is seeing the potential for these films. About damn time.

Yeah, I've been saying that we have seen nothing yet. By the time the effects are done, we can expect the action, the power displays and the wow factor. The first trailer is mysterious in a way, because there is an implied danger but we can't see it yet.

All combined, they do bolster each others' star power, but the main draw is still the X-Men brand name, the familiar characters, the action/ effects, and finally... a few big name stars.
In China Ellen Page ,James and Fassy are more popular than Halle and Patrick ..Things may be different in Asia.

It doesn't mean much for the studio as they get a lower percentage cut of Box office earnings from China, don't they.

It means enough that the studio is bothering to campaign there. They didn't hire Fan Bing Bing for nothing, after all.

Fox distributes it's own movies internationally so they get a higher percentage than most other studios.

Well they won't be making more moneys if they aren't getting anything. Obviously, The Wolverine was profitable for them.

Just based on international but worldwide.

I'm just hoping Wolverine 3 would perform better in the U.S. especially if its the next film after DOFP.
