Forums - Movies Discussion - How High Will Avengers:IW Soar? (Currently @ ~$2.04B+)

With current tracking, Infinity War is definitely NOT heading towards your $807M domestic figure. In fact, it's not even reaching $700M. It's expected to finish a bit below Black Panther at this point.

Looks like IW is now at $1.164B. This is $78M more than TFA was at the same point in time.

I always read TFA as The First Avenger instead of The Force Awakens and have to correct myself afterwards

OT: I'd say 2 billion are possible because of international gross, but it's dropping quite fast domestically right now. If that doesn't stop then it will have a very hard time to beat Black Panther or even Avenger at the domestic box office.

It's still making more money daily than the 1st avengers, which made around 250 million more from the same point in its box office run. If IW continues to track agead it will easily be over 700 million. But i agree that it won't hit 800 million.



I will be happy if God of Cinematography James Cameron's remarks are finally honored and IW crashes and burns for Marvel, prompting them to either take a break or leave altogether.

We truly need a breather from Blockbusters...

The first avengers movie had less competition and was less frontloaded than Infinity War will end up being. IW is a sequel and is burning up demand faster.

You do realize that IW's opening weekend was $55M higher than Black Panther's OW, but IW's 2nd weekend #s that just came in are only 900k bigger than BP's 2nd weekend, right? IW will start losing in daily numbers to Black Panther today, and the later will eventually close the gap. This movie is definitely not gonna be " easily over 700M ".

EDIT: It actually started losing to Black Panther 2 days ago. BP's 2nd Saturday and Sunday were bigger. IW only had Friday over BP. If this movie hits $700M, which I have no reason to believe it will, it's gonna be a loooong stretch. Not gonna be easy at all.

I think Avengers:IW is a great representation of  the disadvantages of having such a cinematic universe. It will receive a lot of support from those invested in the universe, but others who didn't hop on the train early on will avoid the movie due to a fear of getting lost.

Same goes for SW. It's the reason why Avatar did so well at the Box Office. It was a completely new movie with absoloutely no prior lore.



We all know Sony domination is a real thing and there is nothing Microsoft or Nintendo can do about it....

Not lost on me, but if Lord Blockbuster says we have to many of his namesakes, odds are he has a point...

But he's saying so while filming Avatar 2, 3 and 4. Very high level of hypocrisy. And he didn't complain about blockbusters but about superhero movies only IIRC. It's easy to understand him. The interest for Avatar sequels is already low, so he wants less competition to lower the flop chances. The only marketing plan for Avatar 2 so far is "the sequel of the biggest movie ever", it would be awful for him to lose that...

Over 2 billion, but cannot make a prediction after I was so disappointed with Justice Leagues gross. Even bought the DVD three times to help out.

2.3 billion.

Justice League grossed poorly because of the trainwreck fashion DC handled their "cinematic universe".  DC and Warner Bros got what they deserved.  Marvel has no such negative stigma to hold them back.  They put 10 years of build-up into Infinity Wars and this is the payoff.  DC attempted to do a quick cash grab in 2 films (they sub-titled their 2nd film "Dawn of Justice" to let you know how much of a rush they were in to get to Justice League without any character introduction or world building!) and learned the hard way that if you don't get the audience invested in your characters, the movie going audience isn't going to invest in your films at the box office.  The people who stopped paying to see the DCEU films are the ones that "helped out".  The faster DC and WB were forced to realize you can't throw crap at a wall to see what sticks and expect to make money off it the better.  Maybe now they will actually take time to craft quality films.  Isn't that better for everyone?  I know I wouldn't support the Marvel films anymore if they suddenly started coming in at pre-MCU Daredevil/Electra quality.
