As summer is closing to an end, award season is looming and Sony unleashed a few days ago the American Hustle trailer which some people are still trying to cope with.

 

ON my left, we have the director on fire, David o Russell who just can't help but getting Oscars and Oscar nominations for his cast members since The Fighter.

 

The movie has a Scorcese vibe so the comparison is fitting.

 

American Hustle has the ultimate sexy cast circa 2013 : Bruce Wayne, Lois Lane, Hawkeye, the dude from Hangover and that young talented lady :

Ah, yes, her, Jennifer something ...

On my right, the fifth Leo/Marty collaboration about a Wall Street asshole. The cast is also very sexy, Dujardin, McConaughey, Jonah " Sexy Beast" Hill  but most of all insane dance moves :

I am saying American Hustle over the Wolf but I am rooting for both films anyway.

 

AMERICAN HUSTLE:

 

WOLF OF WALL STREET:

Unless Cameron offers SMELL-O-VISION with AVATAR 2, It's not doing more than 400M Plus ..  And YES, I'll bet AVATAR 2 doesn't do more than at best 425M Domestic ... You need to check into rehab if you think TA2 isn't going to make a dent in AVATAR 2's box office

 

I'll be honest with you, I see Avatar 2 doing half of what the first did. Seriously, I think these sequels will start off below $400M and then just drop further.

Because Bruce Wayne drum rolling Lois Lane's ass, that's why.

As long as both are good and make over 100m, don't care who wins out

I can see both ending up with similar totals. Too close to call this far out.

Under. WoWS has a better trailer, a better name, and Leo is the biggest name of either cast.

Wolf on Wall Street looks better, but I have yet to see an audience reaction to American Hustle.

Hobbit 3 will be lucky to hit $240m

The only Scorcese movies that sold more tickets than SLP are Cape Fear & The Departed.

 

Shutter Island and Aviator sold around the same amount.

Both should do very well but if history is any indication odds are leaning in American Hustle's favor.

It will depend on the tone of both movies.

 

Wolf could be a little bit too dark for GA.

 

Hustle could be a little bit too crazy.
