Really like your huge predictions for both Mockingjay Part I and Divergent. I really see Divergent breaking out! Maybe not on the same level as The Hunger Games back in March 2012, but nonetheless, I really see it being quite big!  :)

SM2 - That would be a lower OD than TASM and that opened on a Tuesday.

That is high for Godzilla.

TF4 - 1M more than TF3 and that opened on a Wednesday. So you must be thinking 34M-35M OD.

TASM 2's buzz has seemed minimal thus far, the first didn't make much of an impact either good or bad, and the first trailer is bad. So I don't see the movie making much more than 200 domestically, if even that. I have Godzilla as the big breakout for next summer so I'm going high for that. TF4 will likely follow a Pirates 4 pattern based on the similar patterns the two series have had in the past.

You need to check into rehab if you think TA2 isn't going to make a dent in AVATAR 2's box office

 

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

Not really. Saying TASM didn't have much of an impact domestically is not really a personal opinion. Especially considering the mammoth success all of the original trilogy was. I would be shocked if TASM2 goes any higher than 100 OW. The beginning of May is not an automatic guarantee of a record breaker. Wolverine only grossed $85m in that spot. And that was coming off a similar grossing film as TASM 1.

 

As far as Transformers, I've pointed out before the similar domestic box office patterns the trilogy had to the Pirates trilogy, so it only makes sense that pattern would continue. 100/250 is a reasonable expectation for it.

 

I'm taking a risk with Godzilla for sure, but the teaser generated a ton of buzz, it's not just like I'm the only one who liked it. Again, I can see it being the breakout of the summer.

Only 85M and Wolverine is not SM. What movie was Wolverine coming off that was like TASM?  Again like many here a big difference between AWE/ TF3. So an unknown (non-sequel) will surpass a movie that made 260M+/700M+

Well X-Men 3 sold significantly more tickets than TASM and taking out 3D TASM wouldn't be that far ahead of Origins, so how is that such a bad comparison?

Because Wolverine is a spin off and X men series is not SM. Also letting personal opinions of film and trailer color judgment

Origins was a spinoff movie and obviously going to do less than the X-Men franchise movies. If you consider 2.1M considerable you are right, I guess. TASM was a reboot so its a given will do less than the OT and X3 only managed 2.1M more considering not so good.

 

Do you accept the bet?

But we all know Origins essentially acted like the sequel to The Last Stand from a box office perspective. Jackman is the draw of the franchise. I doubt if X-Men 4 had happened in that same release slot it would have opened much better.

Sequel go forward and last I checked Origins was set pre-X3 you are looking for the word prequel.
