I’ve noticed a lot of searching for box-office predictions for Spiderman 3, which is out in, hard to believe, just under 3 weeks.
Over at HSX, they’ve got a price on it that indicates people are thinking it will be in the $117 million range….
Me, personally, I think that it should open to easily $125 million….It may be the closest we ever see a film make it to breaking the Pirates 2 record of $135 million…..
Who knows…considering I think Spiderman 2 would hold the record if it had opened on a Friday, I’d say anything is possible at this point. Just expect Pirates 3 to be right behind at the end of May……
It’s gonna be a good summer!
I think I was probably the first person to bring up the notion that the 2007 box-office would be a record-breaker……USA Today has pointed out for the millionth time what I’ve know for the past two years.
I think 300 was probably the biggest surprise thus far…I still say it wasn’t the greatest movie I’ve seen, but it gave a huge boost to the box-office…..Trust me, it’s only getting started.
The month of May alone has Spiderman 3, Shrek 3, and Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End……July has Transformers and Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix…
All in all….I’m looking forward to a busy and exciting summer at the movie theatre.
Here’s a link to the article.

TMNT- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles returns to the big screen this weekend….I was a fan of this back in the late 80’s/early 90’s….have to say I want to see this one, even if it is computer animation….it could turn out to be lame, but i usually predict Box Office numbers to be the opposite of the Rottentomatoes.com rankings….Hopefully the plot isn’t too ridiculous, but its rated PG and should have at least 2 good weeks. I predict 24 million in ticket sales this weekend.
Shooter- This looks like an interesting choice as well. I’m a Mark Wahlberg fan, at least i have been for the past few years. Antione Fuqua is directing this one…i haven’t seen Training Day, but everything he’s done since then has been a letdown, maybe this one can get him back on track…I’m predicting about 19 million from Shooter this weekend…
All of the other releases this weekend aren’t worth writing about….but i predict the following Box Office Numbers:
TMNT- 24 Mill
Shooter- 19 Million
300- 18.5 Million
Wild Hogs-13.6 Million
Premonition- 11 Million
The Last Mimzy-10 million
Reign Over Me- 6 Million
All you HSX’ers (hsx.com) enjoy these predictions.
300, the latest incarnation of a Frank Miller graphic novel, made $27.7 million at the box-office on Friday alone.
So much for my prediciton that it wouldn’t crack $30 million for the weekend…..Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad it’s doing well, I just didn’t expect it to do this well! After Sin City, I thought it might be a big hype, and then die off.
It looks like I’ve been proven wrong, and my HSX port is going to suffer dearly for it…..
Look for final figures sometime tomorrow. I’m planning on seeing it this afternoon.
