2015 Blockbuster Predictions
« on: March 31, 2015, 06:22:25 pm »
Furious 7 marks the start of the blockbuster takeover this year!

Which film do you think has the biggest chance of being a disappointment/failure?

Any surprise hits?

Worst blockbuster this year?

Best?

Biggest disappointment: I hope it isn't Age of Ultron, Force Awakens, or Jurassic World.

Surprise Hits: It Follows is probably gonna hold that spot for me. Ant Man might also be a pleasant surprise, since I'm not so sure how it'll turn out.

Worst? See "Biggest Disappointment".

Best? Hopefully Age of Ultron, Force Awakens, Jurassic World, or Fury Road.

Age of Ultron us obviously gonna rule the summer. I'm thinking Jurassic World will do well too. As for surprise hits, I have a gut feeling Mad Max will exceed expectations.

I think Star Wars will underperform a little. That's relative to expectations of course, so it'll still make a **** load of cash, but I don't think it'll quite match whatever the projections turn out to be.

It all depends on the WOM. If it does well with audiences, the sky's the limit.

Highest Grosser: Star Wars 7 (you can't go wrong with Star Wars and a December release date)

The Underperfomer: I'm going to go out on a limb here and say Jurassic World. (compared to other big time contenders like Avengers 2) Probably gonna make something around $988,472,900.

The Surprise: While R rated summer flicks don't do too well unless they're comedies, this is a very anticipated and hyped release. And I'm sure the good reviews Fury Road will get, is gonna attract SOME people (or at least, the ones with brains). Probably around $600 mil to $800 mil.

Uh... that's not really underperforming...  That's actually a lot...

Same with Fury Road...

I'm talking about in terms of how most other blockbusters will actually break the billion dollar milestone, and with Jurassic World, it doesn't seem too likely.

Only two major films are poised to break the $1 billion mark...  Making $900 million would be anything but a disappointing rake.

Also, does anyone here think Spectre will actually be a billion dollar hit as well?

Well of course, Skyfall was a $1 billion rake.

Two? I'm counting on Spectre, Furious 7, possibly Mission Impossible 5, and Ant-Man considering how Marvel is a household name now.

True, but like Quantum of Solace, it could drop from the previous film's intake. Casino Royale grossed more than Quantum. (I'm guessing that was because of the reviews though) If Spectre gets a heap load of good reception like Skyfall, then yeah, it probably will.

No way Ant Man hits a billion.

Ant Man and Furious 7?  Lol.
I said Ant-Man mainly because look at Marvel's recent track record. They managed to rake in nearly $800 million worldwide, with an unknown team of very obscure characters. Ant-Man has been demanded to be in the MCU for quite some time, and he was certainly more well known than the Guardians of the Galaxy before his film adaptation.

Furious 7, yes. The box office gross with these films have been steadily increasing ever since Fast Five. Fast 6 made 788.7 million. With the sympathy around Paul Walker's death, WOM, and the surprisingly positive reviews regarding the movie, it's very well possible it can come close.

I think Star Wars and Avengers ought to get $1.3 billion at the least. Spectre will probably clear a billion or fall just short.
