some recent Japan BO:
Resident Evil 5 - 48m
Avengers - 45m



Jesus...


the REs do extraordinarily well in Japan

looking at Japan BO for previous entries for Superman/Star Trek/Wolverine it dosnt look very promising (11m/6m/9m) but they were all before 3D plus obviously MOS is a bigger deal than SR, Cumberbatch in Trek, Wolverine in Japan so should be way way bigger

forbes names best and worst marketed movies of Summer 2013

STID is one of the worst marketed summer movies this year, Man of Steel one of the best.


'for the record, with $457 million worldwide, Star Trek Into Darkness is no flop and will eventually make money once Trekkies buy the Blu Rays. But neither was it the kind of sequel that explodes out of the gate due to the goodwill of its predecessor. Much of the extra $68 million earned over Star Trek is due to inflation and the 3D price bump, making this sequel closer to G.I. Joe: Retaliation than Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest. So what happened? Well, J.J. Abrams and company shoehorned a major villain from the original series for little reason other than marketability and then spent the next year or so lying to everyone and claiming said villain wasn’t in the picture. Bad Robot wrecked their own movie by inserting a “in name only” variation on a classic Trek villain seemingly for fan service only to kneecap the marketing department by disallowing them to market said fan service.'

I just love that World War Z proved all the naysayers and know-it-alls on this thread wrong and turned out to be a big hit.

Ha!

You know what? Haven't seen it.

I just don't get the preconception that because a film has a turbulent production history it's going to be an all out failure.

There's also the slight sense of added schadenfreude of Cool Breeze being proved wrong.

I thought it would tank, as I said earlier. Zombies are boring, its 12A rated and it stars Brad Pitt who I didn't think was a big pull anymore.

It's alright. Entertaining enough without being special.

I am actually pleased to have been proven wrong. I have yet to see the film but I hear its good and I look forward to seeing it on Blu Ray. I always wanted to see it, I was just worried that it was going to be crap and tank. Glad it didn't.

I think with China now showing more films we'll probably see the global box-office rise significantly as shown with Pacific Rim having taken over $100m in 3 weeks.

You guys must both be on meth if you really believe this. He might be easier recognised now because of a series of films but Iron Man isn't even close to being the cultural icon Superman is.


Iconic isn't the same as popular though is it.

I don't know a single person that's looking forward to the new Superman film. Not one. Now that means jack all in the scheme of things (because obviously the group of people I know isn't indicative of any global trend) and I'd be surprised if MoS doesn't make a good whack of cash at the box office but the film has it's work cut out making the character of Superman relevant to a modern audience IMO. Hell, even the comic book reading public has been dropping Superman hand over fist in the last year (I expect sales will rise when Scott Snyder takes over though).

I fancy Iron Man to make at least double what Superman does at the box office.



I wasn't too far out

I guess I am too - I've heard of them all but I've only seen two. Having said that, of the ones I haven't seen, only Iron Man 3, Now You See Me and The Conjuring remotely tickled my fancy - I had no interest whatsoever in the rest. And I'm quite content being out of touch with the tools who made Fast and Furious 6 the third biggest hit of the year.

I wouldn't know, I've never seen it. But having been bored to tears by three of the entries (fuck knows which ones they were) I'm pretty sure part 6 isn't for me. Though if part 7 opens with that deluded, arrogant clown Diesel getting run over by his own car I'll be at the front of the queue.

Everyone knows that they've pretty taken much a different direction with Fast Five (the one with Brazil), unless you didn't see that and found it boring.
