I do not really think any of those will make it. The last bond was kind of a reboot and had great reviews and got lucky.

 

Hunger games....no. Star wars is the only one I am nervous about, but I think will be between 800 million and a billion. WW could push that one...


The 3 "The Hunger Games" movies have an average of about $760 ml. And this one will be the last movie. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 has got $960 ml,  $336 ml more than its previous average ($624 ml).

I'd say The Hunger Games is a safe bet.

Then, yeah... Star Wars. Although I never understood the excitement about that franchise. There are better SciFi movies out there. Also more suited for adults. :D

There is one big difference with Hunger Games vs Harry Potter. Deathly Hallows part 1 was the second highest grossing movie behind Sorcerer's Stone (the first movie). Mockingjay Pt 1 grossed 100 million lower than Catching Fire. So Deathly Hallows pt 2 came out when the film series was on the ascendant, again. Mockingjay pt 1 will come out with the series on a slight decline. I'm more inclined to compare Hunger Games performance with Twilight's performance, part 2 will do better than part 1, but not that much better. Probably in the mid to high $800 million, not more than $900 million.


If the movie is quality then its certainly a possibility. 

I think it will be similar quality to MJ pt 1. Honestly they should never have made pt1 and 2. The source material doesn;t justify it. MJ was the weakest book in the series IMO but they've padded it out in the movies the most.

Damn, there are a lot more billion contenders still to come this year that I never realised. I was under the impression that Star Wars was the only one with a shot, although tbh I think its more likely looking to break WW top 5 than just $1b

Both star wars the force awakens and bvs will because both of them have like 6 weeks of 0 competition and they both have a shit ton of hype behind them l


I wouldn't say it has that many weeks of zero competition since The Hateful Eight will get its full release on January 8th.  Plus The Revenant should get a wide release in early January also.   Also going by the last three Star Wars movies its pretty easy to say that In the Heart of the Sea will be the best reviewed movie that will be released in December.



Well my guess of Mission Impossible: Rogue nation didn't pan out.

I guess at the moment only Star wars is a guarantee of $1 billion+ with Spectre an outlier.



The final Hunger Games movie, if it really over-performs?

Star Wars is pretty much guaranteed, but I think Batman v Superman has potential, two biggest names in comics going head to head. It's has some legendary hype backing it up, I don't think it'll disappoint

That's next year and is very probable but lets stick to 2015 first.

It did really well though! I still need to see it again. Missed the initial airplane scene.
