Animation Non-Domination (a.k.a. Heartbroken about Lego Batman): Each Animated film excluding DM3 under $250M

68 posts in this topic

After having my hope and dreams shattered this weekend, I thought of something 2017 may be a very soft year for animated films at the box office at 2016 as a possible family film fatigue (BATB and DM3 doesn't count), the only one I could see doing $300M is Despicable Me 3 and it'll barely get there.

My predictions:

Lego Batman (you failed me) will end with a respectable $170M-$185M total.

Boss Baby will barely do over $100M or breakout slightly and do $135M

Smurfs looks soft and will do about $65M-$80M

Captain Underpants might get hurt because of Wonder Woman and competition and end with $70M-$100M

Cars 3 won't do much over $200M

The Emoji Movie and Ninjago will both do in the $100M-$130M range

The Star will have a small OW but big legs due to Christmas appeal ($100M-$160M)

Coco will definitely do under Moana

Ferdinand will either do Alvin 4 numbers or Ice Age 4 numbers

 

So are you in or out?

IN (Lego Batman betrayed me)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

OUT: (Couldn't think of a clever/funny/cringy name for this one)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

(Why couldn't Lego Batman breakout! Why?!, notice me Senpai @Blankments)

DM 3 got good reception when I saw it's trailer... That was awhile ago though

 

I still think that franchise has lots of appeal though. OUT based off DM 3

This doesn't seem ambitious enough. Only movie with a realistic expectation to surpass it is DM3

The more and more I think about it DM3 is the only one that could breakout. Now I'm going to do every animated film excluding DM3 under $250M.

I guess I'm the new version of the club as well. Only ones left with potential are the two Pixar movies.

Cars 3 has a bumpy road but doing barely over $200M and I could see Coco doing over $200M but similar to Moana I see Disney put in little marketing effort and JL could hurt it.

I don't see Cars 3 doing 350 mil even under the most ideal circumstance. Coco could become a zeitgeisty event for Latino auds and pull an Inside Out but I'm not going to bet on it.

I think the Ferdinand the Bull movie could blindside some people. But I see that reaching $200m dom at most.

You mean $250M I changed the club and excluded DM3. Coco comes down on whether or not Disney markets it.

Possibly if it had rave reviews and if (the very unlikely circumstance) Jumanji flops, it could.

In that case I'm out because I don't want to bet against Coco.

 

Being Disney's best hope for a prestige animated release this year I don't think they're going to let it fall by the wayside.

Do you think they let Moana fall by the wayside?
