1) The Marvel brand is stronger than the giant monster genre globally. 2) While Godzilla will play better in Asia, GotG will dominate in the rest of the world giving it the edge. 3) Audiences might respond to GotG like it's the prequel to Avengers 2, giving GotG a boost. 4) Godzilla faces stronger competition than GotG. ASM and X-men could both exceed 500 m WW. 5) Godzilla is a reboot of sorts meaning it faces an uphill battle at the box office. 6) Pacific Rim killed some of the anticipation for a new giant monster movie. Been there, done that.

Hi everyone, its JGAR, and this is perhaps my FIRST topic made by me. To start it off with, Godzilla is still having incredible strong buzz as of right now and has been hyped everywhere. Its safe to say that in terms of box office numbers, it won't only surpass GINO or Pacific Rim but even King Kong and World War Z! At this point, I think the film will definitely make it past $600M, and if we are going to compare 2014 to 2007, I'd say Godzilla is this year's Transformers (and could later become the Giant Monster equivalent to that franchise when the sequels come). I picked Thor: The Dark World for this topic for being the only other big blockbuster in recent memory of 2013 that passed but stayed in the $600Ms, the other being Man Of Steel at a higher $687,999,518. So, who's in?!? EDIT: Not my first topic, I did a Marvel Cinematic Universe thread LONG time ago.
My reasons: 1. Godzilla seems over-hyped on the internet like Star Trek 2. But people offline don't seem as hyped. 2. The lack of a major star to center the story. Pacific Rim made the same mistake. 3. Speaking of Pacific Rim people seem to be more excited about zombies than giant monsters these days. 4. X-men: DOFP and Maleficent will cut into the legs like MOS experienced. 5. The opening weekend probably won't exceed 65 m and it would need an above 3x multiplier to beat WWZ, which is tough. 6. It's really questionable whether Godzilla (2014) can match the marketing machine of Godzilla (1998). The latter was nearly a cultural phenomenon based on the hype alone. 7. Godzilla seems too dark. Asking audiences to take a giant monster movie seriously might be too much to ask. 8. Godzilla is kind of a reboot. Reboots have an uphill battle matching their franchise peak.
