Wonder Woman's Opening Weekend OVER $150m Club

Recommended Posts

I'm a superhero fan. It doesn't matter the publisher, it doesn't matter if it's either the Big Two, Image, Dark Horse or Valiant. I love the superhero genre and very much like Joss Whedon, I don't believe in transcending the genre, I believe in the genre. It warms my heart how overwhelmingly positive Wonder Woman's initial reception is, and I feel that we are in a very similar situation we were last year with Deadpool: it's simply the right film at the right time. My original prediction for Wonder Woman is this:

I think reviews for this will be GREAT. I have a very strong feeling this will be the first DCEU film that will reach beyond hardcore fanboys, so my early predictions for its box office run at the moment:

 

Previews Thursday: $21m 

Friday: $45m 

Saturday: $39m

Sunday: $33m

 

I expect some frontloadness in the preview numbers because superhero fans are eager for a good DCEU film and a good Wonder Woman film. I also expect reviews to be great, ranging around 75%-85% score on RT, so that will definitely help with its box office run. I don't think The Mummy will steal Wonder Woman's thunder at all, so it'll be a relatively easy road for Wonder Woman until Transformers comes around, and even that I don't think will have too much of a bad effect. I see this having a stronger multiplier than Man of Steel, so from a 138m OW I can see this having between a 2.4 to 2.6 multiplier, between 331m to $358m domestically. I basically see Wonder Woman topping at the very least BvS for bigger box office grossing film among the DCEU films (domestically). 

 

 

But I'm thinking it could go higher. I think it could go higher because the timing it's just right. Patty Jenkins is about to become an A list director and the world needs Wonder Woman now more than ever. I feel that these positive reactions are just the tip of the iceberg and there's more to come, so while I'm KEEPING my $138m prediction for the derby and stuff like that, I thought this would make for a good club:

 

Wonder Woman has in my opinion a real shot of grossing north to $150m opening weekend. And no, this is NO easy feat. This is one hell of a great feat and even if falls short to do that, Wonder Woman's real job is what it's already happening: being a great film, a film that proves that the DCEU is worth it.

No Marvel vs DC clubs are allowed. Can I suggest making it 150M, achieves the same objective and does not cause flame wars.

Screw it. I'll go in. It's extremely unlikely but it would be cool to see. But I'd be very surprised if this club actually succeeds haha.

At least 70-80 ow, and at most 110-120 imo.

So will go Out with 90-100.

This formula,

(GOTG2 real OW / GOTG2 fantasy OW ) * WonWom fantasy OW = WonWom real OW

gives

146.5/185*150 = 119

;)

Way out on this one. It Could break $100m if everything goes right, but that's pretty much the upper limit IMO.
