    @themoviefanatic $700 million wouldn't be bad at all, pretty great I think

    @dark-env That sounds pretty good! I had hoped thought that It would make it closer to $1 billion, but I guess that would not be possible.

    @dan1 Too bad I'm barely online, you must be referencing someone else.

    @themoviefanatic I'd guess between $290-$305 domestically and $675-$730 worldwide.

    @ejk1 Ha. You telling these guys the argument is moot and over is funny. The same users you're talking to live for an argument. I've never seen a small group go in circles as much as they have. Every single box office article, you can count on certain people to bring up the same tired arguments. Just let em and ignore it. They want to be parrots, that's their business.

    @thedude1@superman81 Even though there has been a spate of films over the last few years to top a billion dollars, it's still a difficult level that NO film should be expected to reach. The only thing that should matter is if the film has warranted a sequel, and despite what critics have said, and even though I admittedly did not love the film, no one can deny that MOS has done enough commercial business to warrant a sequel. There. That should be the end of this argument, and not because I said it, but because it's the truth. No one can give any good reason as to how MOS is a failure if #2 is already being planned out.

    @diaigma Hmm, I thought it was scrapped because Rio beat them to it

    @ejk1 I agree with what your are saying. However there are some saying it has to make 300 million domestically and over a billion worldwide. Which is absurd.

    @Joshua-Hollaway I am not butt hurt at all. I know the punks who just want attention. I have seen several posts from people who dislike MOS and thats ok. I have also read several from people who said its epic and a great movie. Even the reps from RT said the movie didnt deserve the score it got. But fans gave it great WOM scores. Do some homework besides what some critics say before you speak for everyone. @ejk1 as long as people keep bringing it up there will always be debate. He was a major cheerleader for Avengers so I know his stance. It does get repetitive but people shouldn't make arguments without facts first. But I can see your side and all I wanted was a movie for the fans and a sequel and its achieved that.

    @thedude1 In all fairness I thought MOS is better than IM3

    1 year agoby @Joshua-HollawayFlag

  14. ejk1

    @thedude1@Joshua-Hollaway@superman81 Your argument is played out. For example, it can be pointed out that IM3 had tougher competition on a week to week basis, and pulled higher numbers than MOS. It can also be pointed out that MOS is the start of something, while IM3 is part of an established entity. Both arguments mean nothing. Arguments like that are only for fans to puff up the film they want to see on top. The thing that mattered was whether MOS would make enough to warrant a sequel, and the answer to that question occurred about ten days ago (yes). Everything else you're saying about the numbers is repetitive.

    @bawnian-dexeus - Newt was original, but Disney canned it when they bought Pixar and pushed for Cars 2 instead. I'm sure they'll have something original eventually, but they better hurry. Their rival is releasing THREE originals this year :P

    @Joshua-Hollaway Don't know how you are figuring it "barely" got 500 million. The overseas is still tearing it up. About 80 million first week, 90 million second, and just over 80 again this weekend. It will get to about 420 plus million overseas and over 700 million worldwide. Again very good for a reboot or first in a series comic book movie.

    On top of that you know I'm also a Marvel guy as well. While I didn't like Iron Man 3 I'd showed much respect to The Avengers, Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, and even The Incredible Hulk.

    @Joshua-Hollaway Just because you don't see the competition doesn't make it true. In its second weekend MOS had to go up again MU which clearly hurt it then World War Z surprised everyone. In its third weekend it had White House Down and The Heat and MU was still tearing up the box office. The competition was real and heavy.

    As for the box office it is doing great. A nice hold this weekend no doubt. The word of mouth is really your opinion. While just under a majority of credits gave it an average rating the fans however like it. Not to mention reboots or first in a comic book series are never that big. Just look at Iron Man, X-Men, X-Men First Class, and especially look at Batman Begins.

    @diaigma Wasn't there an article released that Pixar would go back to originals ?

    @superman81 Stop being so butthurt I don't worship the movie like you do. I didnt say it was bad. I just said it wasnt good. not worth the hype..so as much as you want to think its "hate" its not. WOM has not been wonderful obviously...barely scratching 500m with the hype it got. sorry your feelings are hurt, and with a low RT grade..just more evidence..so keep being the awesome cheerleader for your mediocre movie. I'm sure you will get a check soon

    This is why Pixar isn't going back to the roots that made them great; the public dollar justifies their decisions, so expect more films like this from them in the future. Guppies. Speaking of fish, isn't their next brilliant production Finding Dory? :P

    @dark-env How much money do you think Man of Steel will have made in the U.S. , and world wide at the end of its theatrical run in movie theaters ?

  23. Superman81

    @thedude1 it could actually pass ASM OS as well as I just read MOS has yet to open in several more markets. Could be a 500m OS take.

    @thedude1 yea and for it to rebound and only have a 49% drop this weekend shows how well its performing. I think it will be over 270m by the end of the 4th of July weekend and should reach 300m domestic by end of its run. Several sites predict a 300/350-400 finish for 700m WW. Which is really good

    @Joshua-Hollaway once again speaking without knowing. WOM has been very good. Its got fantastic user ratings. WWZ has done way better than expected as well. You obviously are speaking from a mind frame of general hate so I would not expect any less from you.

    @superman81@thedude1 really? i don't see it. MOS with all the hype shouldve smashed the B.O but word of mouth killed it's potential with people giving it the " meh" reaction

    "World War Z" was lame!! Total waste of money!! It felt like the director read the book, then made up a movie as they went along!!

    ...It felt like "28 Days Later" mashed with "The Walking Dead".!

    @Joshua-Hollaway you obviously have no idea what your talking about. MU, WWZ, The Heat are all competition and DM2 and LR will be this coming weekend. And people can be sarcastic all they want, I am happy with the movie and I am glad its doing good at the BO.
