What Were Some Box Office Predictions You Made in the Past That You Now Look Back and Laugh at?

Recommended Posts

Marvel's The Avengers  85 million OW. :rofl:

Ghostbusters (2016) 330 million-plus domestic total :ph34r::( 

 

Wonder Woman     70-75 million OW and a tad above 200 domestic (YAY for that NOT happening!!!) :insane:

When Final Fantasy : The Spirits Within opened to 5M$ on a Wednesday in 2001,  I thought it would make 100M$ for sure.  Especially since the first showing on that Wednesday was packed.

Baywatch $200M DOM and #5 for summer (called in April)...worst one of mine from the year (only been on this board a year, so not as many bad options to pick from:)...

 

Honorable mention DM3 over $110M OW (called the weekend before)...although that undeservedly recovered pretty well and got close to my summer DOM call, so I think Baywatch wins the worst call...

 

Although, probably gonna have my The Star prediction from Jan also bite me in the behind:)...although who knows - The Star could still beat Coco DOM:)...it really could:)...

I thought LEGO Batman would do anywhere from 300-450 lol. Though I still can't understand whatsoever why it didn't at least beat The LEGO Movie given that movie's good will, Batman's huge kid/teen/adult appeal, and the great critical reception LB got.

Could be a bit like why Ninjago is not getting close to either (or Ted 2 box office), lot of the first one success was based on seeing a Lego movie on screen, after the first one that gimmick is rendered a bit useless and cannot bring people in.

 

Also Batman humor did seem to target people with some knowledge of the batman universe, creating a resistance the Lego movie didn't had (everyone know Legos) and didn't share much with the Lego movie to take advantage of it.

Nothing. I for sure can't think of any. Nope. 

Exactly. Most of them aren't predictions that you laugh at - you cry in painful depression about them. It's okay, we've all been there.

 

Anyway, I thought Tomorrowland was gonna make 1 billion worldwide. :sadben:

60/130/420 from you know who was laughable!

 

I predicted $55-60m OW for IT but TBH i don’t think anyone thought it would blow up like it did
