    5. "X-Men: The Last Stand"
    Releasing: May 26
    Estimated Take: $220 million
    Why: It's being billed as the "final" chapter of a series no one knew was a trilogy (did you?). It's the only major movie opening on Memorial Day weekend. It will face competition from "Poseidon," "Da Vinci" and "Hedge," but being the new kid on the holiday is huge. Plus, it faces no real threats in its genre until "Superman Returns" opens five weeks later.
    What To Look For: Lots and lots of death. Unless, of course, the studio changes its mind at the last minute and wants the whole gang to come back for "X4."

    it will make at least 200 million, i think this movie has been hyped up enough, and enough x-fans have been anticipating this movie for so long, and the last to movies give it good street cred, so that regardless of how good this movie is (which i am hoping it will be phenominal) it should at least get to the 200 million mark, but i also think there is no celining on it, it could go as high as it can say 3 or so, i would hope it goes at least 300 and maybe there could be an x4

    Over the Hedge? $325 million? No way in hell would that ever happen.

    I think that the estimate for X3 of 220 million is a pretty good guess.

    I'd be disappointed with $220m. I don't think that would be enough for execs to give X4 the green light in the near future.

    I would be dissappointed also, but just dont see X3 soaring to 300-400 million type box office totals unless we get the highest opening of all time. (Which is very possible)

    If it's as good as expected I would hope for $250m - $300m. Also, the opening should be at least $100m for the four day weekend as both X1 and X2 opened very strongly despite not reaching huge box office totals.

    Exactly, X3 needs to at least hit 250m domestically for a sequel to be greenlit and even then I think Fox will be cautious about doing that.

    I'm expecting something in the range of 200-250 million.

    Where it will fall in that range is, as Han Solo once said, the real trick, innit?

    220 million? No, it needs to make at least over 250 million. And yeah, MSN must've been on crack. Click making more money than X3? :o

    Click will probably make the same amount as last years The Longest Yard made.

    the only way X3 could make $220 is if it has any replay value. It'sll have a huge opening weekend but then ppl will just forget about it, like they did with X1 and X2.

    I hope the studio pushes the release date two days earlier like they did with Batman.

    I hope it makes 250 - 300 Million in the US. It should do similar numbers in other countries.

    I'd love for X3 to take in over 300 million if for no other reason to then the upset them so called numbers they put out. I hate it when people think they can predict the future. Of course you can go by stats and other films similar to the genre, but in the end it's up in the air.

    Click making more money then x3? Doubtful, but you never know. I just don't see click doing that well. I think it'll do between 130-160 domestically, but then it could pass the 200 million mark. I think x3 will get betweeen 220-250 if it's a home run script wise, but if it sucks then it'll have a big opening weekend and fall quickly, probably wll do 160-180 million. The trailer looks good, but i'm not a 100 percent sold with the writers of x3.

    :up: I'm think the movie will make 70 million opening weekend and 300 million worlwide, I mean F4 made 56 million it's opening weekend, which was biggest opening week sales in 2005 at that point. X3 will be better than that movie and has a lot more hype than it. Also with no real competion that weekend, it will be #1...hopefully!!:confused:
