Haha I doubt it's that much. Typo?
That's what a few websites have said the budget was, but no way to know for certain
I was just gonna say I actually think you may be right. Lots of websites are saying its definitely over £200mil
EDIT: yeah I meant to type milk...
I'm pretty sure we had this debate in 2006 and, for better or worse, X-Men won.
XMDOFP is for the moment #1 on IMDB's Most Popular Feature Films Released In 2014 list:
i see it doing over $150 mil domestic opening 3 day memorial wkend...
$300 mil worldwide overall opening wkend..
ill see it on IMAX 3D a couple of times thats 40 bucks rite there.
At the time Xmen was the Bigger and more popular franchise, it also had a relatively small ammount of competition with only a G rated family movie "cars" coming out a week later. SuperMan however had problems down to the promotion itself, with bizzare "lets make this supposedly comic book action movie look romantic to gain female audience" TV spots. It also came out a week before the Pirates of the Caribbean 2 which was HUGE.
You see it doing better than The Wolverine and First Class did in their entire runs, in the first three days? How?
Also I'm not certain but don't Warner and Paramount have some sort of exclusivity to the IMAX Screens. I'm not sure, maybe it's only in some countries.
Avengers did better in its opening weekend than Thor and Caps entire domestic runs.
If DOFP becomes the highest grossing film then WOW
That's because it had insane Disney Promotion including TV shows and toy ads that ran before and months after the movie was released. It also combined about 4 franchises, so that also likely did the trick.
Well, Bah Humbag! Mr Negativity.
he means the use of the British pound sign (£) instead of the US dollar sign ($)
Im like an old man that has seen it all. I say it like it is. And what I say hurts (wouldn't that be a cool phrase to get on a shirt though?).
For an old man who has seen it all, it took you long enough to come on here! I do find your sudden arrival and burst of negativity a little suspicious. I also find all this guessing at box office performance amusing, to be honest.
Agreed. And here I thought I was the only one who perceived this. How...convenient it all seems, eh?
Are you being facetious or sincere?
Of course this film will outpace Wolverine and First class during its opening weekend--even if the reviews are bad. The Last Stand proved that critics are not a blocker in situations like this. Besides, The Wolverine and First Class properties are spin-offs from the original X-Men franchise. Not the other way around.
Nice username by the way.
I'm not a troll or anything I'm just a bored comic fan. OR AM I.
no, but in all seriousness I'm not a troll. I mean, I don't mean for my views to sound negative, I'm just very blunt and honest. see, I added a smiley
haha I am in the UK thats why I used the £ but anyhoo as it stands economically the pound and dollar are pretty close
It may do better than the Wolverine but it won't gross $150 mil opening weekend. Thats insane.
And thanks for the compliment. People are very nice around here.
£225 or £250 million is $350 - $390 USD
Yea that's not the budget for DOFP
I'm hoping for that 3 day opening too. But since it's a long weekend, Box office usually quotes the monday as well so let's go with $180
I should just never open my mouth it seems hahaha. well okayyyy $$$
Did I spouse £? I meant to use $
I said this in another thread, but what Superman can or can't do at the Box Office isn't an indication of what other properties can do.
That's because "Superman is the first & most recognisable in the world" is an old paradigm. The GA doesn't care what hardcore comic fans deem an A-list or Z-list heros.
X3's numbers adjusted are something like $310m US / $610m WW (doesn't account for ex[anded overseas markets). So technically the audience is there they "just" have to be won back. No easy task I know, but if Singer delivers...
If a movie has been continuously trending for months before its release, its a sign that it would perform very well. The Wolverine/First Class didn't have that, so it make sense why those two didn't perform great at the box-office.
