So out of curiosity, has anyone's guess adjusted for better or worse since the latest trailer?

It will do less than Iron Man 3, but with better legs and better home entertainment revenues.
I've seen IM3 and I have to say that it is still a more than decent movie, but it lost almost all its incredible appeal among geeks, nerds and comicbooks fans.
I can predict a +60% drop for the second weekend.

IIRC, I had predicted about 400m domestic and 800m in total more than year ago. That was before I was fully aware of Star Trek ID, After Earth & World War Z being clustered within weeks around MOS.

I'll be happy if MOS breaks 300m domestic, any thing extra will be gravy on top.

MOS opens a month after STID (well, minus 3 days) so I think that's a safe distance. After Earth already got the memo so Will and his boy ran from MOS and there is now a 2 week space between them. Not that AE will be a box office hit of course. And WWZ has flop written all over it. The only thing standing in MOS's way is Monsters University opening a week after. But as history has shown, two big films can easily co-exist with one another and make $$$. Aside from MU, MOS pretty much has a nice 2 weeks before and after and if they are really hiding all the good bits than the WOM will be big and ensure a hit. Can't see any scenario in which this doesn't hit 300 million domestic, other than the film turning out to be a stinker or all the talk of loads of epic action being exaggeration thrown out to spread hype among fans.

Oh I'm aware of the distance between AE and MOS, the rumours about World War Z being a stinker and about Monster Uni.

But it is hard to predict the domestic number for film like MOS mainly because you have people throwing money at films like Fast & Furious, Transformer, Twilight -all of which I'm happy to say that I have never seen lol.

If mos is as good as we all hope it is, I can see it maybe opening lower than expected but having staying power with very small drops. I also wouldnt be surprised if it opens huge.
its just so hard to predict what this film will do. will the public take to it? we'll see, won't we.

I dont think anybody from Sony has actually said anything .

The thing that will help MoS the most now is distance from a big release. The biggest high-profile release before MoS is Fast 6 which is 3 weeks before and is a well known frontloaded franchise. So, 3 weeks later it won't be much of competition.

The middle 3 weeks look like they are filled with smaller movies or what look to be outright stinkers (The Internship). MoS can benefit from all of this by running an aggressive marketing campaign during those 3 weeks making the release the mid-summer event promoting a "must-see" factor. If they can do that, a 100+million opening should be easily on the cards, and it can make a mid-June opening viable again.

This is the end moved to a Wednesday opening instead of Friday. Still it should do all right as counter-programming.

This is actually done through amateur means, so the #s are legitimate but just not professional. As someone already mentioned, "first choice" and in particular "definite interest" are the primary gauges for opening weekend performance. That said, the #s mentioned there are all look right in line with the general expectations for the opening weekends.

Man of Steel's opening weekend is going to be difficult to truly pin down specifically simply because it isn't a sequel and it is - by far - the highest profile live action opening in June in 9 years. But everything is pointing to break out, to the higher end of whatever the range is. That is pretty much anywhere from 80 million to 150 million - huge range, but expect it north of the 120m mark.

In fact its is Yahoo movie users #1 most anticipated movie of the summer by a wide margin. Superman is just so much more interesting with his alien origins than some rich guy that flys around in armor.
Dude, just relax. You sound like you're trying to convince yourself more than anyone else.

That is a good point because every film is going to make less than Iron Man 3.
Are they all underperformers?
