$1b?


its already at 200m in china so might go to 250-300m there total

US has got to be 200m at least

overseas at least 400m

the reason for this must be its the only big fantasy action movie around xmas period as par the course since Avatar and audiences are used to that type of movie at xmas now (Avatar-09, Tron/Potter-10, Potter-11, Hobbit-12/13/14, SW-15/16/17). Bumblebee might be best TF yet but everyone too jaded from Bay like happened with B&R-Batman Begins..

reply

Its already released in China? That was a smart move. I am thinking maybe $750m tops, but who knows with these CBM's. They are hit or miss.

This is going to sail past.. ermmm sorry...swim past 1 billion easily.

I wouldn't be surprised if Aquaman sailed past $1 Billion but given your previous postings coming from you that is a QueenFanUSA wish and not a prediction.

I don't think you're really using any inside knowledge and or projections to make this watery proclamation are you?

If Aquaman does $200 Million in the Middle Kingdom Jason then has to haul in $800 Million in booty from around the rest of the world. Are you sure he has that much junk in his trunk? You sure?

Are you banking on WW like numbers from the good ol' USofA? You looking at $300 Million to $400 million stateside? That would get you between $500 to $600 million from the rest of the territories.

That looks like a steep pile of Simoleans to conquer from the Seafarer but maybe you know something that the industry analysts including Billbrown don't know. I mention BB not because he is your natural Kryptonite, as you've yet to demonstrate any powers whatsoever in making accurate predictions or projections, but because BillBrown is verbose in his detail where you are quite quite sparse in any real substance.

In truth your posts are for show more than anything. Time to show your work. How will Aquaman sail, float, jet-ski by $1 Billion?? Or is it indeed going to be denied that $1 Billion dollar greatness because it will be held back by real Box Office financial analysis?

reply

billbrown is my "kryptonite", eh?

I guess you weren't following what happened over on the Ralph Breaks the Internet board? He thoroughly embarrassed himself over there. He became his own kryptonite.

reply

For the longest time I had questioned Disney spending a fortune making a sequel to a film(Wreck It Ralph) that couldn't even crack 500 million worldwide. I pitied this sequel as it was coming out less than two weeks after thGrinch...which is produced by the hottest, most profitable animation studio currently in business...Universal/Illumination.

Well...lol...I STILL laugh when I think of this...he held the 6-night(yes 6) OW numbers over The Grinch's 3-day and said "Lol. WIR2 beat the Grinch"..when it's clear that it's Fri/Sat/Sun was considerably less...and that's even with the benefit of the Thanksgiving holiday boost!!! LOL

Well..if you have been following what has happened ever since between those two film's box office it's understandable that he'll never get near THAT particular kryptonite again.

Oh..and Ralph is shaping up to be Disney's FIFTH big money loser this year.

Disney's 2018 goes like this:

2 big Marvel performers
1 middling Marvel performer
1 huge animated sequels
1 barely in the black film
4 massive flops each 100 million in the RED

The jury is still out on Mary Poppies but let's just say Disney better not have overspent like they usually do if they want to make a profit.

reply

No I said BillBrown is NOT your kryptonite. Bill likes to Over-over-over-explain things.

You on the other hand use very little words.

I think that Aquaman will indeed surpass $1 Billion dollars and just wanted to understand why are being so overtly enthusiastic at that result. In truth you care little about Warner/DC and Aquaman's success if it doesn't seem to some how reflect poorly on Disney/Marvel.

When Marvel's financial performance leans into China or overseas you will state that is reflective of a weak rate of return. Your prime example was that Wonder Woman's USA performance was the bellwether showcasing what money making really looks like. You were adamant that BP wouldn't come close to WW. Again vocal evidence from you that your sole agenda is deriding Disney/Marvel whenever and however you can.

With you it is always Gloom and Doom with Disney/Marvel. You continue to search with your "Confirmation Bias" blinders on and predict how the End is Near for Disney/Marvel and Billbrown too I guess because of high budgets and low returns.

BillBrown isn't your kryptonite. The fact that Bill tries to put in some work to back up his comments and you refuse to is why you predict so poorly and Wish for results to happen so frequently. Your Kryptonite is your hubris and disdain for Disney/Marvel.

But I digress...…

Aquaman will do very well and looks well on the way to being the DCEU's or whatever they are calling it, 1st billion Dollar standard. Give it a rest though it has NOTHING to do with Disney/Marvel. James Wan's success owes more to crafting a light hearted true to form comic-book movie with a charismatic lead. You know like marvel, RDJ and Iron Man?

reply

How does Aquaman swim past a billion?

Easy. China looks to be heading for 275-325 million. Domestic is looking at bare minimum 300 million but will most likely swim past 400 million leaving the rest of the world's markets to pick up the remaining 400 million. The markets it has already starting in are doing phenomenally.

And I'm actually being conservative here. I have a hunch it will be much bigger than even this.

Detailed enough, Norrinrad? LOL

reply

Detailed enough, Norrinrad?
No. Not really. Normally you would trot out some industry analyst if they pooh-poohed Disney/Marvel's financial predicitions with their own. Here let me help you:

So why didn't you use SM's analysis as background or reference to give your own some legitimacy? You pretty much agree with him on this and he adds some context and reasoning to his prediction?

Be bold, be confident this time. Aquaman will do very well. Even Billbrown has stated that Aquaman will be very successful it will be because of James Wan and also because Aquaman will wash away the stench of what came before with the exception of Wonder Woman.

reply

So the opening weekend for the USA is here and is Aquaman meeting your predictions or your expectations?

Do you remain confident that Mr. Curry will sail past $1 Billion?

reply

It's coming in lower than I expected on it's opening weekend but I remain confident that it will cross the 1 billion dollar mark.

reply

A kid I worked with saw it and was not a fan. He said visually it was beautiful and there were some cool fight scenes but the plot wasn't great. Granted this is just one person and could be an anomaly but what will likely make or break this movie is word of mouth following opening weekend.

reply

Well done Queenfan, I just billbrown was here. :)

reply

Thank you, Bubbathegut!

Oh...he's here...just hiding.

reply

Yup, Fishman will easily pass one billion dollars, I have learned the Queenfan is usually 99% accurate. Now thats its at almost 1b, I see the trolls have vanished.

reply

Why are you trying to make nice with QueenFanUsa? Are you horning in on BillBrown?

Who was trolling Aquaman besides you? Most posters were trolling QueenFanUsa purposefully?

reply

Thank you, once again, Bubbathegut!

reply

Well u suck at predicting so this will end up 700 million

reply

Earning 1b is all they have left cause let's face it with 70% RT and 53 on MC this won't be critically acclaimed. Let's give them a money-earner at least.

reply

lolz f4il

reply

I predicted wrong, but then predicted 700 million cause queen sucks so bad , always need to trim off 600 million of its predictions

reply

* womp womp*

reply

If it does, I want to see all those DC Zealots (like...you) admit that WB screwed up with Snyder is friggin' AQUAMAN outdoes Superman, Batman and the Justice League.

reply

I'm not a "DC zealot". I much prefer Marvel, believe it or not. I'm interested in box office for movies and having fun predicting and commenting on them.

reply

And being wrong and then running like a coward like you did with Ant-Man and the Wasp?


reply

Huh?

What are you on about?

reply

You don't think we remember your predictions that it would be a flop?

reply

I never predicted it would "flop". I did say that is was questionable if it would make a enough to be profitable due to it's budget and the performance of the first film.

That's it.

I made no declarations with certainty. It's the same question I have about Ralph Breaks the Internet with it's 175 million dollar budget when the first film couldn't even crack 500 million worldwide.

reply

You much prefer Marvel, believe it or not?

No one believes you Queen. Point to more than one thread that you made when you praise or acknowledge Marvel.

Point to one thread that you made praising Disney.

You still confident that Aquaman will be doing that breaststoke or is it the Suicide or Dead Man's float trying to cross the $1 Billion Dollar mark that you yourself put out their inadvisably?

No, you're NOT a DC zealot (I guess) but you're sure no fan of Marvel, the MCU or Disney.

reply

I don't know if it hits 1 billion. That's a tall order for most movies but I think it could reach 700 million during the length of it's run.

reply

1 bil is pushing it. I could see about 850m.

reply

Sucks for Bumblebee though since they're releasing back to back here. Talk about battle of the billion dollar franchises.

reply

Already close to 500m! This is going to come close to 1b overall and should end up highest grossing DCU movie ww beating BvS (870m)

As expected only low 22m & 21m opening for Mary Floppins and Bomblebee ... (Aquaman did 67m!)

reply

Now at 750 - already beaten JL, MoS, SS

reply

It will drop like a lead balloon soon

reply

It had the smallest second week decrease of 25%, MCU falls around 60+%. The latter is lead, the former Aquaman surfing on the tidal wave of success.

reply

Now at 850m beating WW.. BvS next..

Maybe it will beat TDK/TDKR and become biggest DC movie ever..

reply

It NEEDS to beat the Snyder movies.

Unlike those, this is actually watchable.

reply

its beaten BvS

reply

940m (beaten venom now as well)

reply

I'd hope so. Venom was NOT very good.

reply

Venom is long beaten, it's higher than Fragglerock but slightly below Guardians2.

They all got their ass handed over to them by Aquaman.

Guardians was defeated in a dance off and Guardians 2 was flushed away like a raccoon turd. Thor is crying like a girl again when getting a haircut. Venom rolled away like a turd in the wind.

reply

You remember that Suicide Squad also had dancing and Aquaman had the hero thinking pissing was the key, right? So stop being such a Zealot and grow up already.

reply

Your logical fallacy is false equivalency.

If you compare the oft-mocked "dance off, turd blossom" dreck (defeating the films main villain lol) with a random dance in SS you are seriously retarded.

And you are even more retarded if you compare one silly line in Aqua with a never ending plague of penis, turds and nipple dialogue in the anysmal racoon turd movies.

Just from shit Vol 2:
Hahaha I have famously huge turds!!!
I will hide a squishy turd in your pollow case
Did you create a penis?
I have sensitive nipples
I'm Mary Poppin y'all (cringe)
He could be your David Hasslehoff!
My name is taser face hahahahahahaha

oh feck off I really couldn't give a shit , Im just here to talk movies , I couldn't give a flying fuck if it made 4 billion, the only time I get like an edgelord with box office is with DCEU zack Snyder dick riding pricks

reply

Nah you don't want to discuss movies, you just want o pick fights with DC fans...if you really want to discuss movies than you would discuss movies but you let your hatred for DC makes that impossible, you're just going to have to accept that DC fans are happy with the new direction that the DC films are going and move the fuck on you pathetic waste of life!

reply

Exactly this , this right here is my problem with the dceu, it's fucking arrogant , edgy, hate filled , cunty fans, I knew this day would come , a film finally makes a billion as if it's the first to do so, nothing can be the same again and we must all bow down before them , this film was ok , but yet now you all think it's god like cause it made 1 billion and yet never share views on the actual movie. Just like andre cedeno, filmgob and that DCEU fanatic edgelord, bitter and twisted.

Game set match

I bet this hits one billion or at least comes really close. A big win for WB and the DCEU!
