    I got banned bro.

    Long story short...

    • I was really drunk one night
    • Jplaya made a stupid thread defending Michael Vick and his dogfighting ways
    • I was really pissed off and wanted the thread closed
    • I posted a nudie pic
    • thread was closed
    • I tried to logon to SHH the next day (with a terrible hangover) and *TADA*...nosebleed is perma banned

    *le sigh*

    This was my prediction on May 27 - more than a month prior to it's release. After Transformers finishes it's run through IMAX, I think I'm going to be pretty damn close to the final B.O. number.

    It was just a guess of a guess, but I knew the movie would be a huge success. A couple of weeks ago I didn't think it'd be able to pass up Shrek, even with the IMAX release, but that seems more than likely now.

    It looks like its going to make 312mil before it get's to Imax, so it will only need 9 mil to catch up with Shrek. That's a strong possibility.

    I'm guessing $10 million from IMAX, which would put Transformers right around $323 million when it finishes it's run. Shrek grossed $320 million so yeah...

    Yes.

    You are right.

    Your precise and concise critique of the movie conveys the sadness of the success that is Transformers.

    Let me type in a way you may understand better:

    Ur thawts R smart d00d.

    Lets consider the facts.

    The budget is said to be 150 million. Considering that alone, it's relatively amazing we got as much robot footage as we did.

    ^ It did look bigger than 150 million huh? I thought the F/X were pretty good but a bit cartoony at times. It's like they had no effect on the World around them at times.

    Even if you think they were reduced to cameos, thats not a bad thing in a movie with TYRESE as one of the stars.

    Wherever Transformers finishes, it will be fine. Also with the IMAX screening to close to the DVD release, the movie will sell tons. Finishing at least second will be very nice though. I don't really see any movies coming out that will earn that much this year.

    It looks like with the IMAX release and the (still) trickling in international numbers, TF will pass $700 million in total world wide receipts. It'll rival Shrek for the number 2 spot domestically, and it's solidified the number 4 spot worldwide.

    I'm starting to think Transformers won't really get that much out of IMAX. I'm thinking between the range of $2-4 million tops. The run in IMAX will be short, and most people that really wanted to see Transformers have already seen it multiple times.

    But I'm still going to see it on IMAX! :)
