Jimbo's Key Players

 

Avatar 2

Worldwide: $3b to $4.7b
Domestic: $900m to $1.1b

Now you maybe thinking I only made this thread because of Avatar 2 and you would be right, there is no shame in being hyped for the sequel to the highest grossing film of all time directed by the film-making visionary and explorer sensation James 'Jim' Cameron. You maybe thinking my predictions are insane but that's the nature of James Cameron at the box office. The prediction comes about with my absolute trust in the films quality, there's no reason for me to believe this film won't be incredible. We're to expect [revolutionary new 3d to the best of Jim's ability], [Avatar on steriods], [film-making innovations], [smart screen-writing], [exceed even Jim's expectations] and to [shit ourselves with our mouths wide-open]. My worldwide prediction has such a big range for one reason which is China, in 2009 Avatar tripled the current champion of the box office gross and became the new champ ($66m to $200m). The problem with China is the unpredictability of the government, they could just block Avatar 2 all together because they find the message of the film not to their liking.

 

Mulan

Worldwide: $1.60b

Domestic: $400m

I've got a feeling this one will be big, we're entering an age of Disney live-action remakes worse than the original but I've got hope this one could be better than the original. It's setting could look visually fantastic in live-action on the big screen. Beauty and the Beast made $1.3b somehow, it's unfair really because it wasn't a great film. Has the potential to break-out massively in China and made it the second highest grossing live-action Disney remake behind the unreleased Lion King.

 

Minions 2

Worldwide: $1.4b

Domestic: $400m

The first Minions (2015) made $1.1b worldwide and Despicable Me 3 made $1b worldwide (2017), does this mean the franchise is declining? I don't think so. People love those dumb yellow capsules and I think we're looking at a increase worldwide as the franchise has unfortunately been growing overseas.

 

Fast and Furious 9

Worldwide: $1.5m
Domestic: $320m

The Fate of the Furious did lacklustre compared to it's predecessor in Furious 7. It will have been 3 years since number 8 so it's gives a little longer for them to cool down, I reckon it will rise again with inflation and market growth (China!) around to where Furious 7 landed.

 

Fantastic Beasts 3

Worldwide: $930m
Domestic: $260m

This one's easy as Harry Potter is such a consistent franchise, FB2 will increase from the first film by 5% from inflation then FB3 will do so aswell.

 

Honourable Mentions

The Batman - Batman has grossed over a billion before, he seems to me like the most popular superhero.

Guardians 3 - I think this one is a known entity so it can't break out, something like $600-950m

Godzilla vs Kong - If the Godzilla film this year is good I can see this one breaking out big time.

 

Maybe I'm missing something obvious but I'll update my predictions as time passes and more information is gained, for now it's a stab in the dark.

 

Missed the 2019 thread? It's still up and running here, go check it out.

I don’t think GV3 is making 2020 anymore but that’s still a bit low.

Avatar 2 and 3 have finished all the motion capture (over a 100 days of it) and they're doing the live action stuff now.


I don't think I could take another setback...

 

The upper range of the GV3 seems about right but I thought the controversy could have an impact maybe like Solo.

Early guestimates but fuck it:

 

Minions 2 will decrease majority both domestically and somewhat WW, it’ll be the IA5 of the DM franchise ($190M/$800M)

 

Mulan does TJB Numbers DOM/BATB Numbers WW

 

 

Maleficent 2 bombs hard, also Rugrats too.

 

The Mitchells vs The Machines and Scooby breaks out

Well, you obviously missed the joke.

 

 

Solo was a movie no one wanted not even Star Wars fans and they took the one good thing away (Lord/Miller).

 

GV3, I honestly feel the GA won’t care about the Gunn thing, but I actually can see where you’re coming from, probably something like $750M-$1B seems to be the right range.

Would love to see a SCOOBY breakout, that would be lit. Scooby 2 monsters unleashed is one of the best films of all time, scrabby dabby doo is a legend.
