    Maybe by Sunday at the earliest. Likely though it'll be sometime during the next round of weekdays. It's $17,676,621 away from $1.3B and still has Thursday's # to add(probably around $1.3M) and will likely make $7-8M this weekend so it all depends on what it pulls in OS. If it can have an $8M or so OS weekend then yeah $1.3B will fall by Sunday. I only give that a 50/50 though. Monday is more of a safe bet.

    It made $8.1M OS last weekend, so another $8M OS this weekend is a bit too much to ask. The current OS number only counts what it made through last Monday though, so maybe it can get close to $8M OS from Tuesday-Sunday. It has been holding extremely well OS so that certainly seems possible.

    But yeah, like you said: it'll probably get close to $1.3B this weekend, and pass it during the next set of weekdays.

    After Avengers if someone had said JL would gross $1.5B worldwide and BP $200m domestic it might have sounded reasonable lol.

    Deadline so far is saying it's projected to make 8.2 million this weekend. Another great hold.

    $1.3B feels unreal. It's like another Avengers sized film rather than just a standard good new solo sized film.

    I feel the exact same. It's almost like a dream really. Like, no matter the acclaim and fan response, it's crazy that it grossed that much. Never in a million years would I have imagined this to occur.

    Can't imagine anyone expected that much. Now time to see how much IW and the sequel can make!

    3 months ago, I thought 800 million was too crazy a prediction. :loco::loco::loco: I'm so happy to be wrong.

    This is what I love about following the box office. A lot of it can be full of surprises. Just looking back not too long ago to 2015, that was an unexpected year. I did not see F7, and Jurassic World doing as big as they were. And even though I knew SW7 would make a lot of money, I didn't see almost 1 billion domestic type money coming. I suspect we will have more surprises coming soon.

    Yeah, there are a lot more freaks than people seem to remember. Hopefully we get a few more in the next few years.

    Yeah, $8.43M is a great hold, 26.6% drop from last weekend. Best in its run so far.

    Another really good hold overseas as well, already up to $634.5M. Now guaranteed to pass TDKR's $636.8M OS total to become the 5th highest grossing superhero movie of all time overseas, behind Age of Ultron, The Avengers, Iron Man 3 and Civil War.

    Soooo close to that $1.3B WW mark now too. Maybe it'll pass it when actuals come in tomorrow.

    Estimated totals after Sunday:

    Domestic: $665,355,740
    + Foreign: $634,500,000
    = Worldwide: $1,299,855,740

    Yeah, except in China. It's ending its run there today with a multiplier just below 1.57x. Has taken BvS's place as the most frontloaded Marvel/DC movie ever in China

    Oh damn. Hope that doesn’t bode too badly for the sequel’s China numbers.

    Shame cause it's no where near the worst mcu film and I'm speaking on the DC films( except WW.)


    Now the next milestone we can track is to see if it can pull put 700 domestic. I think it could still hold well even with IW coming in a few weeks.
