Dunkirk Over Saving Private Ryan's Adjusted Gross

Yes, I'm being 100% serious with this club.  Want me to elaborate further?

 

-The fact that a teaser was released a year before release truly shows that WB has confidence that this is a major tentpole.

-Nolan's name has massive draw nowadays.  He can make nearly 3 hour movies into truly huge box office hits.

-A war drama looks like perfect counterprogramming to the action-packed CBM's that usually plague our summer movie season.

-Harry Styles can help bring in not just the adult crowd, but the teenage crowd as well.  Very smart casting choice.

-If this gets great reviews, there's no limit.

 

So who's in this wildly ambitious and likely impossible club?

Nope. An ambitious but potentially achievable club would be Dunkirk over Saving Private Ryan DOM and/or WW. I would still be out DOM, but if it's a big hit in Europe it could potentially get to $500m WW.

Look at one point I think I predicted over 400M for Interstellar. Nolan has my heart. But... Maybe we so just stick to the unadjusted number.

Yeah Interstellar should've lowered people's expectations on Nolan. Not every of his movie is going to be a major hit like Inception.

 

If Interstellar, despite being a seemingly much more crowd-pleasing movie than Dunkirk, couldn't even come near Private Ryan's NON-adjusted number, yes we could say the chance of this club winning is next to zero. So, out.

Unadjusted, Yes......Adjusted....nah.

 

Interstellar showed us that not every Nolan-movie can hit $300M DOM......and Interstellar did not even hit $200M. The only non-Batman movie, Nolan made that was closest to $300M but below it....is Inception. And that one had Leo in it.

Tom Hanks was at the absolute peak of his career in 1998. He was coming off of to Oscar wins and this had Steven Spielberg coming off of Schindler's List. Christopher Nolan is definitely a name that people can get behind but as others have mentioned in this thread there's no huge star in this and no gigantic battle like everybody was excited to see for Saving Private Ryan. I guess this has a chance to do 200 million but in my opinion there's no chance it comes anywhere near Saving Private Ryan adjusted gross.

That'd be like $400 million...

 

I think it could do $200-250 but I'm not sure about any higher. I had high hopes for Interstellar but as good of a run as it did end up having, it didn't cross $200 million let alone the $350 I predicted.

 

Nolan definitely has a lot of draw but I'm not sure about that much.

Out.. Star Power is a big thing that Saving Private Ryan had that this one doesn't, other than Nolan's Goodwill and name...
