Has anyone heard what the tracking is for this movie? Opening week that,or is it too soon?
Why do people tend to bother with how much a film makes specifically in its own country? The total figure is all that actually matters, after all.
Dom : 400 million
WW : 800-900 million
About 600-700M WW
I had to check the previous box office numbers...the first movie did better than I remembered!
When it comes to the sequel:
opening weekend 135 m
domestic gross 380 m + foreign gross 310 m
= worldwide gross 690 m
Do the words "a f***ton" say something? Yeah, it's gonna make a f***ton.
Domestic- 400 million
World Wide- 600-900 million
I think $800 Million is a good number, it may make more, but the hype is bigger this time and Iron Man now has a much bigger fan base, so that helps.
Taking into account the first one made over 500 mil, the fact that sequels always make more, and how the media and mainstream celeb shows like ET and Access Hollywood are building this movie up, if only for its star power, I'd say just over 700 mil WW.
The first movie opened with $98.6 million, grossed $318.4 million total domestically, and $585.1 million worldwide.
The general assumption is that Iron Man 2 will gross more since it's a sequel. Just remember that it isn't always the case. Spider-Man 2 didn't outgross Spider-Man, for example. The real factor is competition. Iron Man didn't have any real competition for three weeks since Speed Racer and Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian underperformed. The same could happen with Robin Hood, Prince of Persia, and Sex and the City 2. But, then again, you never know.
So, just to play it safe, let's say its opening weekend is over $100 million. With hype and inflation that's very possible. But it'll slow down with Shrek Forever After since that's a family movie. The first three Shrek movies were very successful, so that could be repeated. So, let's just say that the final domestic gross is over $300 million but under $350 million with the worldwide gross between $600-700 million.
Opening Weekend: $105,000,000
Domestic Total: $350,000,000
WW total: $700,000,000
Opening Weekend: $110,000,000 - $120,000,000
Domestic Total: $325,000,000
World Wide Total: $600,000,000 - $750,000,000
Oh boy, I can smell the Nolanites and the batfanboys already starting to mount their anti-IM2 campaign. I bet a few of them have their canned "bad" reviews already typed up simply waiting to add a few details before they storm the net and try to bash the film. Trust me, it'll happen regardless of the film's quality.
^Heh, screw them. This film is likely heading well north of $400M domestic(provided it's of the same or better caliber as the first movie, which so far looks to be true) and will probably settle in at the $800M - $1B range worldwide. I can easily see this setting a new opening weekend record. Beating TDK's domestic take will be quite a streach but is far from impossible. This is definitely the odds on frontrunner for biggest movie of the year. Not bad for a '2nd tier' superhero property.
Alice and Wonderland opened with what??? 120 million??? And some of you guys have it barely over a 100 mill. Big OW are to be expected these days so I think 150 has to be the minimum when you adjust for inflation and the works. 400 domestic isn't a huge stretch either, but it could fall short if the reception comes up a little short.
$161 million opening weekend!
^That's about what I'm guessing.
how did the first movie do in comparison to Batman Begins? by all means Batman Begins should have made much more money since Iron Man was a nobody to most people, but i have a feeling Iron Man made more money. Going by that theres a chance it could beat TDK if its a real good movie
