Default Which studio will win the Box office battle in 2016?

Simple question, since some people seem to be exceptionally sure of themselves already. I expect a lot of crow to be eaten after some of these early bombastic predictions go up in smoke.

Yeah, those stupid fanboys. Believing that the movies featuring characters they like are going to earn more money at the BO than the films featuring characters they don't like as much. Bunch of morons, that's what they are!

It's a tough poll. I would rank the March-May team up films as:

1) CW
2) BvS
3)XM:A

And the secondary films as:

1) DP
2) SS
3) DS

I'm voting for the DC pairing, but I wouldn't be shocked if any one of the three end up on top.

So you had to make a new thread to show those naysayers what's what eh?

What is the difference between those that are sure of themselves on one side of the fence, and those sure of themselves on the other?

I think my estimates are the same as Zarex's above, CW and DoJ will be a close race, but I expect Civil War to ultimately come out on top. X-Men hasn't quite had the box office success of the other CBM properties these days, though Deadpool gives them a nice early start and great returns...I think Suicide Squad would probably make more on an opening weekend than Strange, given Batman and Joker, but the box office will ultimately depend on which one is a stronger film.

I think Marvel will make enough with CW that if Strange stumbles, they can still come out on top, so I'm gonna go Marvel Studios.

I think it will be close, but Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman all on screen together is a huge deal. I'm gonna say WB will outgross Marvel by a bit.

DC is gonna win it this time. BvS is the underdog & is going to end up outdoing Civil War in terms of overall gross.

My $0.02 anyway.

I really don't think BvS is the underdog despite what some might say here. WB will win the box office this year. But unlike OP claimed, suicide squad is not going to outgross civil war. It'll go in this order, I think:

1. BvS
2. Civil War
3. Suicide Squad
4. Dr. Strange

So you're describing yourself.
WB beats Marvel this year,no contest for me. Batman,Superman,WW,Joker etc. are just too much.

DC got it in the bag. They're bringing something new out of something familiar. As nig of a Marvel fan as I am I think BvS is gonna beat CW by a nose. And Strange will do Ant Man numbers, with Suicide Squad pulling a Gaurdians sized suprise hit.

WB will almost certainly be #1, not just for its two big DC films this year, but they'll also have Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them two weeks after Doctor Strange.

They're bouncing back from their losing streak, that's for sure.

Marvel is the big dog, the big brand name. All things being equal, they will dominate the box office.

Rogue One will be a big success, but nowhere near the phenomenon that TFA was. Only Episode VIII will come close to it, and that comes out next year.

I can see either WBDC or Marvel coming 1st. BvS might outgross CW but Doctor Strange make up the difference, or CW outgrosses BvS and SS makes up the difference.

Either way I'm pretty sure Fox is firmly in 3rd. Even with Deadpools breakout I don't think XMA can make up the difference to catch the other 2.

Rogue One could gross half of what EP7 did and still outgross Beasts by a solid margin.

This year will be interesting because both studios are releasing two films that are, in my opinion, on the same scale.
BvS and Civil War both have the potential to be world-beaters, and Suicide Squad and Dr. Strange both have the potential to be out of left-field hits akin to Guardians. I still stand by my prediction that BvS will make slightly more than CW, and SS will make slighter more than Dr Strange.

Honestly, if BvS is actually a good movie and not MOS-level divisive, I'd like to see them dominate this year.

But really, it could go either way between BvS and CW.

It's going to be DC. BvS will do better than CW, and I think SS will do better than Dr. Strange. But I think all three studios will do great this year. Deadpool is doing fantastic, and I'm sure X-Men will do similar numbers, making both movies a success.

But I think it'll go:

DC
MCU
Fox

Marvel's going to have the more critically acclaimed films while DC has the bigger box office.

Making an argument for fox(for the seem to have none presented).
1. So far they are 'winning', especially if you look at if from a revenue perspective. DP may end up 'making more' than the other two studios 'secondary' ones. At the end of the day things could end up being closer than it would seem.

2. Expectations tend to play a role in these discussions. Clearly fox is the one with the lowest going in, that may help with the perception of whom performs the 'best'. Living up to sky high expectations has been a shadow over various things in the past(see various dc stuff) meanwhile simply doing well but crushing expectations...deadpool and various others.

I'm keeping an open mind, but at the end of the day I'm sure they'll all do well and this be one of the strongest years ever. When it comes to studio talk however, I currently have no idea what other big things fox has going on this year.

Because there's none necessary.
Fox might have had a shot if Gambit was currently in production with at the very least Dr Strange's marketing,
so they would have had 3 cbm's (assuming they all make around the $400-700+ mil ballpark), but that's not the case.
I won't be surprised if Apocalypse under or over-performs, but I will be if it bombs or makes more than the 2 juggernauts. Would be delighted if I enjoy that movie the most and even made more bank than DOFP.

Deadpool has already crushed it in the budget:gross ratio. For any of the heavy hitters, (CACW, BvSDoJ, Apoc) to profit more than Deadpool, they'd have to make more than Titanic. The remaining two, Suicide Squad & Dr Strange, would have to be in the ever-growing billion dollar club (as much as or more than AoU to be precise).

The studio, itself, still has ID2, a Zac Efron + Aubrey Plaza + the 2 stars of Pitch Perfect comedy, 2 animated flicks (potentially the worst mainstream ones of the year), and another (much more anticipated than Agent 47 most likely) attempt at a video game adaptation.

WB's got this one easy, Batman V Superman is most likely gonna knock everything else out of the water.
