well, lets hope we don't hear him say, after MoS makes 700 mill, and we're sitting around waiting on a sequel announcement...

I don't think any great solo superhero has a top level as high as a great team of superheroes has, especially overseas. I don't think any Iron Man film for eg could dream about making IM3 money without having had a link to Avengers. Put a Cavill Superman into a JL film with a Bale level Batman and the other main members done justice () and that can make more than whatever MoS makes. And all the members of that team could see a big boost to their own franchise.

It's so much easier to create true event film status with a bunch of superheroes. Avengers 2 could be on for $2B and there's no reason why a good JL film can't achieve anything that an Avengers film can. And the other thing Superman himself would be the lead in a JL film & thereby benefit even more so as long as WB was confident they could make a good enough JL film then I'm quite sure this would be their intention (whatever figure MoS comes up with).

I still think $700m should have been the goal the whole time and i still think this is what the film will make around barring it really exploding. I still have doubts internationally as to what it can do?

Shareholders never forget! Giving public unrealistic earnings forecasts to shareholders or the stock market is not far from corporate fraud. It won't be that.

More likely just trying to create buzz for potential viewers. And if MoS disappoints at all he will look a complete idiot.

I think what he's saying reflects on what he perceives of the quality of the film. In his mind, or rather in a perfect world, this would be WB's biggest hit yet. Logistically this wouldn't be all that hard to do. WB has a few films on the all time WW list. But Iron man 3 has shown that surpassing them isn't all that difficult.

For example does anyone here think that MoS2 won't surpass Harry Potter and become "WB's biggest hit?"

I for one think Snyder directing this material and not some super niche super divisive product and with Nolan and Goyer's involvement is at the very least, going to make exec's very happy.

Saying a potential MoS sequel passing DH2 is still presumptuous.

Ah, so Warners, you are supposed to lower expectations not raise them. Have they learned nothing from the Superman Returns debacle?

It doesn't mean that it will earn more than HP-Deathly Hallows part 2 or TDKR.

It's not fraud, but it is possibly negligent misrepresentation and if the statement had a material effect on WB's stock price, it could give rise to a claim for damages.

Still laughing at all the 1B + predictions. It's ludicrous.

I really do not hope that we don't get a sequel because it didn't make 1B. It's gonna make around 600-700 worldwide IMO.

TASM got a sequel with 750M. Unless it pulls a Superman Returns, we'll get a sequel.

The article says this:

Quote:
...Warner Bros. motion pictures group president Jeff Robinov went so far as to predict it will be the studio’s highest performer ever. That would mean the 3D movie, which cost about $225 million to produce and another $150 million to market and release around the globe, would have to top the $1.3 billion cume for “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2″ and the $1 billion-plus each earned by four other Warner releases, “The Dark Knight,” “The Dark Knight Rises,” “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” and “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.”...
The highest performer ever means this year or any previous year and it does mean that it would have to earn more than $1.3 billion, which was the take for HPADH2.

Maybe in his mind he thinks it could be "the avengers" for WB for whatever reason. Maybe superficially he's grouping those two movies together in the fact they have flashy super-powered heroes in them?

Regardless it's pretty misguided. Well to be fair in his mind probably GL was the next Iron Man. (not comparing gl and mos)

I think Robinov is basing his prediction on the fact that the film is tracking higher than nay other film this year at the same point in time. That means that it would be tracking higher than IM3 was 6 days prior to release and that film is currently grossing $1.2 billion worldwide. If that's the case, then it would stand to reason that it could surpass $1.3 billion, which would make MoS the WB's highest grossing film (and hence why Robinov called it).

Man of Steel is not getting a billion, it could come close but it is a long shot.

Still sticking to around 130 million OW and anywhere from 350-400 Domestic. Anything lower than 95 OW will be a disappointment. But I fully expect MOS to break box-office records for June. With inflation Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban has the record at 119 million. But Transformers Revenge of the Fallen would have Crushed the June record if it opened on a Friday.

For any indication, I for one am seeing Man of Steel 4 times next weekend. I am taking 5 different people (who would not have seen Man of Steel OW if not for me) Again, I saw Avengers twice and TDKR twice last year. And Batman has been my fav. super-hero of all-time(TDK my favorite CBM). I have faith this movie will do over 100, but how much over is the Real question that most studios and box-office people can't tell you. Mainly because it is impossible to track once tracking reaches 100 million.

600M WW prediction. I'll be floored if it does anything over 700M.

How?

Or, to be more frank, No, you are completely wrong. Iron Man 3 has shown that you can surpass all of them if you are the latest entry in an extremely popular series that just had a record-breaking predecessor the prior year. That has literally nothing to say for WB's ability to break records with a reboot of a series that hasn't had a popular entry in decades.

Yea, and it still turned out making more than $1.2 billion. In spite the dispute between Disney and the theater chains, "Iron Man 3" was still tracking to make more than $150 million on opening weekend prior to it. Imagine what MoS would make with better presales?
