  1. After the thanksgiving weekend of 2012, Skyfall did just over 60 Mill till the end of its run. QoS did 26 Mill in the same timeframe, and its legs were much weaker already. I'm expecting Spectre to settle somewhere in between these 2 numbers. With regards to Intl, UK should generate another 10 Mill. Japan maybe 20 Mill and throw in around 75 Mill in the rest of the markets till the end of it's run in 2016. That's my rationale for the 900 Mill figure. The biggest ? is how much Star Wars would affect this once it is out in a couple of weeks' time and I expect a significant impact and that unknown is what may tip the scales against SP.
  2. Approx 40 Mill from the US and 100 Mill plus from the rest of the world. I'd still wager that this will end up over 900 Mill.
  3. Knowing what you guys know about the Chinese market, what will MJ2 and Spectre likely end up at? Martian will probably kill these two by the end of this week?
  4. Obviously you have NO idea of what you're talking about. With the current domestic of $153 Mill and with Thanksgiving this week, are saying that the BO will generate an additional 30 Mill plus from here? Here's a toast to Mr. Clueless ---
  5. These chaps know what they're talking about when it comes to predicting how the Chinese box office goes. Spectre is a 'relative' disappointment in China in that this is not hitting even $100 Mill there, even after all that extensive promotion. To me this Chinese under performance effectively rules out a Billion $ box office WW for Spectre. Well, I don't think that it is a case if 'No one outside of NA' cares about the HG Franchise. The previous films did relatively well in Europe, but yes, they probably don't have as wide an audience as some of the better known Franchises. Plus this is a case of sequel fatigue kicking in. Lionsgate will still make money from this, maybe just not as much as they'd have wanted to.
  6. Early days yet and I do hope that MJ2 picks up as the weekend wears on.
  7. Lol..Can't agree more.
  8. It won't make a difference to the Wee Laddie MovieMaker's head; he's parked in the freezer with the notion that this is a big failure. Maybe it was the humour in the film that did him in.
  9. Spectre - 3.25 Mill (Up 34% from Monday) and Peanuts - 1.2 Mill (up 36%)
  10. Laddie, look above you and you will see the shining light that is me.
  11. Oh my god!! All is lost. It had a massive drop on Sunday and this will go down by 90% on Monday. With some prayers by the very many Bond supporters on this board, this may end up at $175 Mill. God (and board members) only can help Bond.
  12. China will do 100 mill plus and so, 600 mill is well within range.
  13. And the unreported numbers from France for the weekend was $14 Mill. Sony hasn't officially included this number in their International totals, but Hollywood Reporter has this mentioned.
