Yep, the new "Summer Movie Preview" issue is out, and SR has been chosen as the BO king, with $300 million domestically!
 
Of course it is, too much anticipation.

It is the "Phantom Menace" situation.

Whether it is worth it though, is another thing.

I hope it is.
 
hardly a spoiler, moving!
 
Still a nice little piece of info, though.

Let's see...Warner Brothers movie, Time Warner magazine...
Ah-HAH! How could I have not spotted that before? How could I have been so blind?!
 
Premiere lists the movie making 230 million.
 
That said, Time Warner does own EW.

I see it making more in the 250-275 million US BO range.

I think a lot of people will have overestimated it like Batman Begins.
 
what is on the cover
 
Hi, I was going through supermanhomepage.com and on the main page they have listed the predictions made by Entertainment Weekly for the 10 highest grossing movies for 2006. The good news for all Superman fans is that they have put SR at the top with $300 million. X-MEN is ranked third at 240 million and POTC 2 at 6th with 200 million. Ironically, in the poll conducted by them it is POTC2 which is heading the chart. Well, I guess that's the way predictions work, if they were the same for all, they won't really be fun, but atleast that's some positive news, based on who you would trust more, the magazine's predictions or the voters.

I hope this thread is worthwhile and would make for some excitement. If it doesn't please close it.

Can't say I agree with EW. I think the top spot will go to either X3 and POTC 2.
 
hmmmm EW.... Of course they are going to make this kind of predction they are owned by the WB.


Um anyone that think SR comes in at 300 Million while Pirates only get 200 Million...is seriously smoking crack!


I think they also predicited MI3 will be number 2, not to mention they pretty much ignored sure fire hits like cars and Over the Hedge
 
I think PotC 2 will make the most money at the Box office. The first one was so great and more and more have seen it on DVD afterwards and are looking forward to the sequel.
X-Men 3 and MI3 will probably make alot of money too, but I'm not sure if they're gonna take more than Superman Returns. If Singer gets the trailer right and may through june will be plastered with Superman news then it will have a good chance of taking the second place.
Or it will make a decent amount like BB and then come back stronger with the sequel. It's hard to tell if the general public will flock to it like Spider-Man or if they will be cautious like they were with Begins.

In general the winnner at the Box office for the summer has a movie that comes out before or on Memorial Day.


4rth of July is big but in general... Memorial day is bigger.
 
I am sorry, I didn't see the earlier post. Well, this thread is redundant then, please close this.

Don'tsee how you put the code above X3.... or Cars IMO


Excel..take a good hard look at the past most of the time...Spiderman 2 Excluded.

the winner of the Summer Box Office hits BEFORE or ON Memorial day... it is in general the biggest weekend and the Winners of the Summer are there
 
I have a strange feeling that no movie will cross 300M this summer. Probably MI3 just because of Cruise. Because my local newspapers had as a headline today in the entertainment section "Cruise, X-Men and Superman lead Hollywood". Why would they put Cruise and not the movie MI3?

MI3 will not cross $175 million

I expect $58 million/$160 million.

Public is tired of Cruise and his BS stuff.
