    Great news.

    Wolverine has been a super duper success.


    Surely it has to happen.

    It has made over 400 million on a 120 million budget.Combined with the fact it has a hardcore fanbase,I think it should definitely happen

    400 million! $UCCE$$

    My b.o. prediction for this movie finally came true :D

    Of course, and worldwide, this is the most successful movie for FOX this year. I know there's the Croods, but FOX only distributed the film.

    Damn, son. The chinese are really eating this one up. Good for them. If there is such a thing as "deserving to succeed", Wolverine is pretty much there.

    Now, my three most anticipated future movie moments in a chronological order:

    1) Wolverine unleashed blu-ray
    2) Days of Future past
    3) Prometheus 2 (not kidding)

    The movie thoroughly deserved this... :up:

    I'm cautiously optimistic for Days of Future Past.

    Well, Wolverine Origins had a $150 million budget and made 373million, so it roughly made 2.5 times its budget back in theaters and it got a sequel despite bad reviews.

    The Wolverine has made 405million and counting on a 120million budget (should end up near a 3.5 multiplier) and has good reviews.

    The answer is definitely yes, it has made far more than enough to warrant a sequel. If it had made $300 million, that could have possibly warranted one.

    But just bc its enough doesn't mean they will actually make a sequel. I think everything is really riding on Days of Future past. If DOFP makes 600million I think were in for more x-men movies, not necessarily a standalone Wolverine film.

    Its FOX though and studios like FOX would like to milk the success of their successful franchises. If only the original gang is not coming back for DOFP and the FC cast is not coming back, FOX probably already greenlighted a Wolverine 3 movie by now. FOX has a couple of good options with the X-Men franchise.

    I am sure Wolverine would have crossed X-2 to become the second highest grossing X-Men movie.Also,it would have crossed Pacific Rim to become the 10th highest grossing movie in 2013.

    It's true piracy has hurt Wolverine's BO.It is a stupid movie to release it after so many months it released in other countries.So many torrents have decent prints of Wolverine.

    P.S:Did anyone read the news about Arnold's Last Stand releasing in China now?Really?The original print of the movie has already been released on the net

    The Wolverine released in China 3 months after it released in other countries.So many good prints would have come out.It is hard to deny that it wouldn't affected BO performance.People who would have wanted to see Wolverine wouldn't have waited for 3 months to see it.And it wasn't till the beginning of October it was confirmed to release in China

    According to Box office mojo The wolverine stands at 405 million

    132 Million Domesticly and 273 million overseas.

    It needs 2 million more to match X2's worldwide box office.

    It already matched/surpassed X2's worldwide box-office. Box-office-mojo hasn't counted Wolverine's 2nd weekend numbers in China.
