Recommended Posts

Independence Day 2 over Independence Day DOM (306 mil)

Reasons:

A week and a half before July 4th. Classic.

The first was a cultural phenomenon in the 90's, there will be much nostalgia

The first big budget non comedic alien invasion film since War of the Worlds

Jeff Goldblum and Bill Pullman are returning!

Jurassic World, a sequel to another cultural phenomenon, is making serious bank

Liam Hemsworth is a star in the film

Roland Emmerich, the king of disaster movies is directing again

Will be the 20th anniversary of the original movie!

There are no big movies releasing in July

I'm tempted to say in just because how far nostalgia just got JW. But I'll say out for now. 77OW 190DOM.

Then again, we haven't even seen a teaser yet, so lets wait a bit shall we?

Out, 278M. 

 

Summer 2016 is pretty crowded and this one doesn't have any a-list stars. It'll still be a strong hit, but this won't be the event that the first was.

90% of ID4's success was due to Will Smith.

 

Wtf? ID4 opened to 100m 5 days because of Will Smith?

 

MEN IN BLACK - yes, that is Big Willie style.

ID4? No, that was landmarks blowing up.

It doesn't matter if it has a 100 m 5-day OW.

No way it crosses 300 m without Will Smith.

Of course that matters ? It was and still is arguably the biggest opener in the history of film. It was going to be FUCKING ENORMOUS and Will Smith had very little to do with it.

 

MEN IN BLACK was 90% Smith. ID4? Um, no.

The vast majority of movies with a 5-day opening around 100 m end up with the 200-240 m range.

 

ID4 had excellent legs and Will Smith had alot to do with it.

Um.. I really hated Independence day so it's hard to give an unbiased answer, but isn't Liam Hemsworth leading this? and no will Smith, not every reboot, belated sequel will be a JW.. Genisys was proof of that, plus this film just hasn't stayed in the public's eye like JP has, plus it opens a week after finding Dory.. I could be wrong, but I am really out, wouldn't be surprised if this misses $200m

nope jeff goldblum was a far bigger draw. He picked bad movies after jp, jp2 and id4. Will smith couldnt smell that kind of success my friend. Jeff was clearly the man. They dont need will if they got jeff and a great cast..

Im def in. 350 m domestic. Way more if good

jeff goldblum was the biggest standout star of jp and carried jp2 on his shoulders. Jp2 adjusts to wsy more than will smith films domestically. Hes never had films that passed 300m dom my friend. Jeff has had 3. Jp adjusts to damn near 700m. Id4 jeff got most of the scenes. How the hell you said will helped the film by 90percent. Not true grey. I think your going to be suprised how big id42 goes. Now wills career is on a decline, and because he was greedy missed matrix and now a big comeback film for goldblum and pullman. Yeeehaw
