      @themoviefanatic $700 million wouldn't be bad at all, pretty great I think

        @dark-env That sounds pretty good! I had hoped thought that It would make it closer to $1 billion, but I guess that would not be possible.

          @dan1 Too bad I'm barely online, you must be referencing someone else.

            @themoviefanatic I'd guess between $290-$305 domestically and $675-$730 worldwide.

              @upsmann44 - yep. I can still be facetious though :P

              @bawnian-dexeus - that's their excuse ;)

                @ejk1 Ha. You telling these guys the argument is moot and over is funny. The same users you're talking to live for an argument. I've never seen a small group go in circles as much as they have. Every single box office article, you can count on certain people to bring up the same tired arguments. Just let em and ignore it. They want to be parrots, that's their business.

                  @thedude1@superman81 Even though there has been a spate of films over the last few years to top a billion dollars, it's still a difficult level that NO film should be expected to reach. The only thing that should matter is if the film has warranted a sequel, and despite what critics have said, and even though I admittedly did not love the film, no one can deny that MOS has done enough commercial business to warrant a sequel. There. That should be the end of this argument, and not because I said it, but because it's the truth. No one can give any good reason as to how MOS is a failure if #2 is already being planned out.

                      @ejk1 I agree with what your are saying. However there are some saying it has to make 300 million domestically and over a billion worldwide. Which is absurd.

                        @Joshua-Hollaway I am not butt hurt at all. I know the punks who just want attention. I have seen several posts from people who dislike MOS and thats ok. I have also read several from people who said its epic and a great movie. Even the reps from RT said the movie didnt deserve the score it got. But fans gave it great WOM scores. Do some homework besides what some critics say before you speak for everyone. @ejk1 as long as people keep bringing it up there will always be debate. He was a major cheerleader for Avengers so I know his stance. It does get repetitive but people shouldn't make arguments without facts first. But I can see your side and all I wanted was a movie for the fans and a sequel and its achieved that.

                            @thedude1 In all fairness I thought MOS is better than IM3

                              @thedude1@Joshua-Hollaway@superman81 Your argument is played out. For example, it can be pointed out that IM3 had tougher competition on a week to week basis, and pulled higher numbers than MOS. It can also be pointed out that MOS is the start of something, while IM3 is part of an established entity. Both arguments mean nothing. Arguments like that are only for fans to puff up the film they want to see on top. The thing that mattered was whether MOS would make enough to warrant a sequel, and the answer to that question occurred about ten days ago (yes). Everything else you're saying about the numbers is repetitive.

                                @bawnian-dexeus - Newt was original, but Disney canned it when they bought Pixar and pushed for Cars 2 instead. I'm sure they'll have something original eventually, but they better hurry. Their rival is releasing THREE originals this year :P

                                  @Joshua-Hollaway Don't know how you are figuring it "barely" got 500 million. The overseas is still tearing it up. About 80 million first week, 90 million second, and just over 80 again this weekend. It will get to about 420 plus million overseas and over 700 million worldwide. Again very good for a reboot or first in a series comic book movie.

                                  On top of that you know I'm also a Marvel guy as well. While I didn't like Iron Man 3 I'd showed much respect to The Avengers, Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, and even The Incredible Hulk.

                                      @Joshua-Hollaway Just because you don't see the competition doesn't make it true. In its second weekend MOS had to go up again MU which clearly hurt it then World War Z surprised everyone. In its third weekend it had White House Down and The Heat and MU was still tearing up the box office. The competition was real and heavy.

                                      As for the box office it is doing great. A nice hold this weekend no doubt. The word of mouth is really your opinion. While just under a majority of credits gave it an average rating the fans however like it. Not to mention reboots or first in a comic book series are never that big. Just look at Iron Man, X-Men, X-Men First Class, and especially look at Batman Begins.
