    The Total Film estimate seems to be inflated - I was thinking about half of that total - but while GOTG may not have some of the big opening week numbers of its MCU bretheren, it may make up for it with an extended box office run. Looking at the August and September release schedule, TMNT opening the following week looks like the only film with the kind of all ages appeal of Guardians. If the film maintains a healthy % after Turtles opening it could be in theaters for a long while.

    I think they put that there jokingly to emphasize how excited they are for it.

    It could be. But with Marvel studios having two movies thus far with over a billion dollars in ticket sales, it's not THAT crazy of an estimate.

    I also think it was a metaphor for an intangible emotion that represents 1.1 billion dollars.

    I can see this film being beaten down to death by the WWE since Dave Batista is back with the company. That can improve their numbers, unless the WWE screws it up, which is not out of the realm of possibility.

    I'm going to say $250-300million worldwide.

    If it does more than that, I'll be very surprised. Super excited, but very surprised.

    High End - Thor: The Dark World numbers (600 M +)

    Low End - CA:TFA numbers (350 M +)

    Most Likely - Thor 1 numbers (400-500 M)

    I'm putting it at $200 million plus. Which is still great. And hopefully it can do more.

    Edit - Ok I messed up. I was thinking domestic. I'd say $400 million worldwide. And there's no way to change my vote sadly.

    I'm still thinking around 500 mill. That'd be a pretty good success really.

    That would be an amazing success.
    I'm being extremely optimistic with my 600 million dollar prediction.
    Let Forbes put the significance of the August release date in perspective for us in the article they released following the trailer.

    If this movie is as good as it looks, I think it'll do Iron Man 1 numbers.

    Right now, based on the 1st trailer, I'm gonna say:

    Opening Weekend: $75M
    Domestic: $190M
    Worldwide: $420M

    Opening Weekend: $35 million
    Domestic: $100 million
    Worldwide: $290 million

    If Star Trek 2009 couldn't even get $400 million worldwide and it was released in May. I don't see this film making more than that with the August release date. Last year, blockbuster fatigue happened in late July, there's also competition from Ninja Turtles and the trailer is not really that appealing. Right now, the only thing really going for the movie is the *Marvel* brand but I don't think it would do much work especially the lead characters of GOTG has yet to appear in an Avengers movie.

    GotG is not going to make less then the Wolverine did in the same time frame. I am positive of this. Not with Marvel's name attached. Not with Rocket. The OS markets are going to eat up the space ships and talking animals.

    That's a pretty subjective response to the trailer though. Even setting aside your response to the trailer or my response, generally the response has been overwhelmingly positive, with articles being written about what a social media success it was, and that Forbes article bumping up its estimations for the film's box office success based on the positive buzz.

    The Forbes article was interesting. I wasn't aware it was so rare for an August film to make over $500 million. So it'd be crazy if Guardians of the Galaxy were to pull it off. The only chance it has if it is truly excellent, generating enough good word of mouth to make it a "you gotta see this" pop culture event, really give it some legs.
