Will Smith has always been a bankable star. Even his last movie made money, because it did not cost much to develope.

We'll see. He was out for 3/4 year - that's a long time in Hollywood.

I didn't realize the last film he starred in was so long ago until you pointed it out.

Men in Black 2 should do fine. It's a 4 day weekend so it'll probably end up close to 75 million (with a 80-85 million first week).



Past Present Future

Woof Woof

Diablo 3 called axume, and it wants its biggest fan back.

MIB3 WILL DO GREAT WORLDWIDE.

 

MIB3 should do $600m+ worldwide when all is said and done

The Hunger Games should be over $400 million domestically in about three weeks less then $5million to go.

He actually chose himself to take that long of a break.  Once he is done filming After Earth, he is going to be in a ton of sequels.

The Hunger Games needs less then $5million to make it past $400 million domestic I think it pretty much guaranteed to make it now. I think it has a change to make another $10 million and if it does that it will pass Tranformers: Revenge of the Fallen and Spider-Man. It should be in theaters for at least 10 more weeks including the discount theater run.

Well John Carter and Mirror, Mirror just hit my local cheap theaters. So they may be able to inch out a few more million as well. That may help Mirror, Mirror but John Carter will need DVD and eventual TV run just to break even. Did the author of that book make a sequel?
