Sadly Wolverine is only tracking at $60 Mil opening weekend and $150 Mil total. This needs to get phenomenal reviews and great WOM.

It's just projections and tracking. Surely you've been to websites like boxofficemojo.com and boxofficeguru.com guided by supposed box office experts who project how an upcoming movie will do.

Well boxoffice.com does a long range forecast and of course they update their guesses the closer it comes to the release of a movie. My bad, The Wolverine is now at $65 Mil Opening weeked and $160 Mil Total. It's trending up

Which is a very good prediction!

Anything better than FC numbers is already a win for me!

I kinda find it hard to take projections seriously. I only pay attention to numbers when the movie is actually out.

Hugh had Liev Schreiber and Naomi Watts and their kids over at his place for lunch today.

X-Men united! Hugh Jackman invites big screen nemesis Liev Schreiber and wife Naomi Watts over for lunch at his New York home
By Cliff Renfrew
PUBLISHED: 20:33 EST, 23 June 2013 | UPDATED: 20:33 EST, 23 June 2013

They were half-brothers and arch enemies on the big screen but in real life they are best of friends.

And that bond extends to their families too as X-Men star Hugh Jackman invited over his former co-star Liev Schreiber, his wife Naomi Watts, and their two sons Sacha and Kai over for a spot of lunch at his New York City home on Sunday.

Family man Hugh - who is raising two children Ava and Oscar with his wife Deborra Lee Furness - nipped out to his local deli in Manhattan's West Village to get some supplies before his VIP guests arrived.

Hugh and Liev have been friends for a long time, ever since they filmed "Kate & Leopold" (directed by James Mangold) in 2001.

Hugh is promoting "The Wolverine" in Korea on July 14 so presumably he's making some Asia rounds (I'm sure Japan is in that schedule) before he will hit San Diego for Comic Con. Besides DoFP, I wonder if anything from "The Wolverine" will be shown.

Mangold:

As of 1am, the mix is complete. FInished. The color is timed. Done. Titles. Check. 3D will take one more week. Sigh. Gonna lie down.

I think is going to be the more other way around. DOFP buzz is going to help improve The Wolverine box office.

But if The Wolverine turns out being a good movie... it could be good for DOFP.

When I saw Man of Steel last weekend, they showed a preview for Liev's new TV show before the movie. The guy next to me was telling his kids, "Yeah, that's Wolverine's brother..."

Hugh is starting to gear up for The Wolverine promotion - the U.K. premiere is July 16 and Australia is July 24. Meanwhile, Hugh and Jennifer have made the Forbes Most Powerful Celebrities list - he's at #11, the first actor on the list:

Quote:
Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence And E.L. James Are Among The Celebrity 100 Newcomers

When Hugh Jackman was nominated for an Oscar last year for playing Jean Valjean in the movie version of Les Miserables, it just confirmed what everyone in Hollywood already knew: Jackman is one of the most powerful actors in showbiz. He debuts on our Celebrity 100 this year in 11th place with $55 million in estimated earnings.

Best known for his work as Wolverine in the many X-Men movies, Jackman is far more than an action star. As he showed in Les Miserables, he can move us to tears with his acting and with his singing. Jackman is the quintessential entertainer who is as comfortable hosting the Oscars and hoofing it on Broadway, in shows like the upcoming musical Houdini, as he is kicking butt on camera.

And Jackman is a budding businessman. With his Laughing Man Coffee and Tea company, the Australian actor is lining up to be the next Paul Newman. All of the profits from Laughing Man go to charities. The company’s first coffee shop recently opened in New York’s Tribeca neighborhood

Good for Hugh. I would've thought RDJ would be higher than him though (?)

Anyways, where's The Wolverine TV Commercials? This is getting ridiculous!

Here's the whole list, I think more factors are involved other than just "pay" - Downey is #20.

http://www.forbes.com/celebrities/list/

Commercials, don't worry, we'll probably be bombarded with them the closer it gets to release.

Here's an explanation on how the list is created:

Quote:
The Celebrity 100: How We Create The List

We’ve revamped our algorithm for the 2013 Celebrity 100 with the goal of making a cleaner list that better reflects what accounts for celebrity power. In the past, we’ve given extra weight to magazine covers based on the logic that publications only select powerful, popular people for their valuable cover space.

But that emphasis had started to reward reality stars who know how to work the tabloid media but don’t actually have what we would consider power.

So we’ve scrapped that part of the metric. In its place we’ve turned to E-Poll Market Research, an Encino-based company whose E-Score Celebrity metric ranks 6,600 celebrities on 46 different attributes. We’re using the company’s E-Score number to come up with our Marketability Rank, a measure of how desirable each celebrity is to marketers.

We’ve also improved how we evaluate social-networking power. In our connected world, celebrities have an amazing opportunity to connect directly with their fans and push their music, movies and sponsored products. Some celebrities, like Justin Bieber, who is our most-social celebrity, take advantage of this. Others, like Jennifer Aniston, avoid social networking like the plague.

We used to just look at Facebook FB -0.37% and Twitter numbers to gauge social-networking pull. This year we worked with Starcount, a Singapore-based Internet company that measures social networking power across 11 platforms including Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Orkut and Weibo. Each star’s number is a reflection of how popular he or she is on the Internet.

We still track print media and television and radio mentions using Factiva.

The Celebrity 100 is based on entertainment-related earnings plus media visibility (exposure in print, television, radio and online). We consider film and television actors, TV personalities, models, athletes, authors, musicians and comedians.

To compile our earnings numbers, we talk to industry insiders, including agents, lawyers, producers and other experts, to come up with an estimate for what each celebrity earned between June 1, 2012, and June 1, 2013. Earnings consist of pretax gross income. Management, agent and attorney fees are not deducted.

All of the data is processed through an algorithm that creates our power ranking. Earnings carry the most weight. Print mentions, TV mentions, social-networking power and marketability all carry equal weight.

We then divide the celebrities into categories like musician, actor, actress and personality.

Anyone who hasn't been following The Wolverine can head over to that board for the full recaps and interviews, but here are some excerpts from the footage that was recently screened:

From Latino Review:

Quote:
“The Wolverine” has definitely adapted a darker, more serious tone to the picture. There’s a joke sprinkled in occasionally but you can tell that the filmmakers have brought up the quality in this picture, perhaps as a way to visually separate themselves from the horrendous “X-Men Origins: Wolverine.” The action sequences are very top notch, and the second half of the bullet train scene looks fantastic and is thrilling to watch. If this is what the rest of the movie will be like in regards of quality and action, audiences will have a blast watching “The Wolverine.”
From Collider:

Quote:
"After watching fifteen minutes of director James Mangold’s The Wolverine in the editing room a few weeks ago, I really think we’re finally going to get the Wolverine movie we’ve all been waiting for. While I don’t want to write a play by play of the footage Mangold showed, I’ll admit to seeing the first ten minutes of the film, and then about five minutes from a major action set piece that took place on a fast moving train. From what I saw, it looks like Mangold has nailed the character and the action, and Hugh Jackman looked like he was finally part of a Wolverine movie that will showcase the true character. Consider me sold."
From JoBlo.com:

Quote:
"Like most of us, my relationship with the X-MEN franchise fluctuates on a series of highs and lows depending on the film. So to gauge how my write up will possibly reflect your anticipation level, let me quickly make my peace with the previous installments: I really like X1, love X2, tolerated X3 (haven’t revisited it since theaters), loath ORIGINS and am generally ambivalent towards First Class… Yeah, that last bit is usually where my opinion differs from most. With that in mind, after viewing the first fifteen minutes of THE WOLVERINE as well as the train action set piece you’ll recognize from the trailers, I feel pretty comfortable saying this movie is shaping up to be the most promising installment to the universe since X-MEN 2."
Looking good.

I feel like I wrote this

Thanks for all the info danoyse and narrows

I actually really liked Iron Man 3, loathed Man of Steel. I think The Wolverine will surprise the naysayers. These early glimpses seem to prove this.
