Box office update.....getting closer to.... Can't Post

$290 million in America... Sly...I'd say $300 million is within reach and should be attained...

Can't wait for the worldwide totals to be updated....

Yes yes [In reply to] Can't Post

It'll definitely hit 300 million, maybe it can even do 305 ;)

China should do at least 50 million, we're good for 1.05 billion ;)

If it remains in theatres [In reply to] Can't Post

is there a date where it must be pulled from theatres?

With international box office [In reply to] Can't Post

The total after this weekend should be somewhere between $920-930m I imagine. Should be about $970m at least by the time it opens in China, which will definitely see it over the line.

Numbers for Japan... [In reply to] Can't Post

The Hobbit is doing far worse in Japan than FotR did. It's total is only $17 million at the moment. FotR amassed over $80million. Anyone know the reason why The Hobbit doesn't appear to be as big as a hit than LotR in Japan?

According to BOM FOTR did $68m in Japan. [In reply to] Can't Post

ROTK, however, did $95m.

What makes Hobbit look even worse is the fact that the Yen is stronger than it was 11 years ago.

I have no clue, what happened. Sure, there was some strong competition but that alone can't be it. It had an ultra wide release. People there just didn't care for whatever reason.

American cinema just isn't as popular at the moment, I suspect. [In reply to] Can't Post

A lot of the big time American comic book movies have flopped abroad recently. There just isn't as much interest in those in countries where the comics themselves aren't popular. If the marketing did the mistake of associating itself with other American special effects blockbusters, it's to be expected that they'll fail in Japan at the moment.

Doing less is one thing, doing as badly as Hobbit another [In reply to] Can't Post

Spiderman and Avengers still made $40m+, Batman $25m but it was never popular in Japan. LOTR was.

Well [In reply to] Can't Post

I don't have a clue, but Japan is really the exception to the Hobbit foreign market, it's doing great or just fine in as good as all countries, especially Scandinavia. If you want a look at some really bad foreign numbers of a recent blockbuster, check The Hunger Games.

Did you see hunger games? [In reply to] Can't Post

I really don't understand how it did so well in any country, felt like loads of action movies i had previously seen - just this time with a young woman.

On the note of the hobbit, it does sound like its done good to great in almost all markets, i want to see it get to number 7 in all time worldwide (it was my guess from a while ago, lol)

Yes and i liked it. [In reply to] Can't Post

Felt very different than your typical action movie.

The new number 7 worldwide will probably be Skyfall. Might even top ROTK if it does really well in China. Unless Hobbit makes like over $120m in China, number 9 to number 12 is the likely outcome, i'm afraid.

It didn't. [In reply to] Can't Post

It did very well in USA, but failed big-time at nearly all worldwide markets.

As for your question, I watched it and thought it was mediocre at best. AUJ was definately better.

No hobbit for number 7, lol [In reply to] Can't Post

Ultimately i dont care at all, i just want it to because that is what i said. If Skyfall takes that spot then that is very impressive as it hasnt had the help of 3d prices and its james bond - popular but not exactly a world beater when it comes to critical success or BO, not for a long time. Though i watched it and liked it, think its one of the best bond films ever.

As for Hunger games - whats different about it? Just felt like i had seen it all before, doesnt help that i dont believe the main character could do half the things she is shown to do, lol.

I'm afraid? [In reply to] Can't Post

As long as it has crossed the 1 billion mark, I don't see why anyone should be dissapointed. Yes, some had hopes for more, but 1 billion is still 1 billion. Not being satisfied with that would be like being dissapointed with getting a draw vs Real Madrid in football!

We have no idea what WB had hoped for, but I cannot see how they would start meddling with the production like some people feared if the box office numbers were low. They are more than enough for us fans to enjoy the pleasure of extended editions of each and every TH movie, I dare guess.

And yeah the hobbit was better, deserves to make more than The Hunger Games, many movies of course deserve to make more than they do, some deserve to make far less (looking at transformers!)
