Iron Man 3 is at 949m atm. So that it is a definite no brainer there.

Iron man 3, Man of Steel, Hobbit 2, maybe Captain America, Fast and Furious? Hell no

no one is talking about pacific rim

Well obv Iron Man 3. Then maybe Fast and the Furious Six but I highly doubt that. No I really doubt it. Star Trek is a maybe but I also doubt it. Man of Steel could maybe do it; I only see it happening if audiences and critics are raving about it like TDK status. Hobbit 2 I also extremly doubt.

Iron Man Three, Hobbit Two, and I can't think of another movie that will pass one billion. You know what? I will be kind to Star Trek Into Darkness and say it has a chance to break a billion. Why not? I
May 7 - 07:26 PM
Sequels or reboots are the only ones that have a chance. To add to your list, man of steel has a decent chance, hunger games 2 has an outside shot, hangover three only if it gets great critical reception, monsters university and despicable me 2 could get close, the wolverine probably not, 300: rise of an empire could surprise, thor: the dark world maybe.

Fast and Furious 6.................a BILLION dollars.......are you kidding me.
May 7 - 02:16 PM
its got a fan base so....
May 7 - 03:40 PM
May 9 - 03:51 AM
A fan base that isn't large enough. A lot of people consider the franchise shit, so...
May 12 - 03:08 PM
I think the only two movies to crack a billion this year are Iron Man 3, and the godzilla reboot...
Godzilla: Kim and Khloe eat Japan!!
May 6 - 11:35 PM
godzilla reboot coming next year
May 7 - 12:08 PM

Gigli 2: Electric Boogaloo will hit a billion for sure.
May 6 - 10:35 PM
Iron Man 3 is gonna hit 1.5 billion, i think.
Although TH:AUJ did make a billion, I don't DOS will. It'll be like the star wars prequels: phantom menace was a smash hit after hitting a billion, but the other films made much less money.
As for "fast and furious 6"... WHAT!? Fuck that shitty trash movie franchise for puerto ricans.
May 6 - 09:09 AM
Ahm, TH:DOS will hit it! :) Its predecessor gained cinemascore of A and it gained big overseas because it was a holiday movie, it was viewed by families of big numbers and they took watching TH as a tradition since the last scene is a 'convincing' way to lurk them back to end the story. It will easily outgross AUJ but will not get near LOTR3
May 6 - 09:19 AM
Maybe, but I'm guessing that because AUJ was disappointing to some Tolkein fans, the fanbase might drop a little, so it's fair to say the numbers could potentially drop as well. If it hits big, it'll probably be at 920 million, tops.
May 6 - 01:46 PM
The Tolkien fans, yes, they will post lower contribution than the past installments. But the overseas largely contributed to AUJ's income returns, and we all know that overseas market continues to grow rapidly esp. in Asia-Pacific. China pulled AUJ to the billion dollar club, and now that their gov't will be more open to Hollywood movies, it could beat UK, Japan and Australia as the AUJ's largest overseas markets. And of course the fanbase doesn't have a big share of the gross, the family/friend bondings still holds the lion share! And ways to spend Holidays are now shifting to instant entertainment and sharing instead of the traditional ways. :) $950million for me is its lowest possible box office gross, $1.08billion is the highest possible.
May 7 - 01:51 AM
Hm, good points there. You're much more well learned than myself. It could hit a billion again; after all, it IS the Hobbit. lol
May 8 - 11:21 AM
Iron Man 3?Most Probably.Hobbit 2?likely.Man Of Steel?Maybe.
May 6 - 05:55 AM
IM3 is a sure shot and could "outgross" HP7.2. The Hobbit 2 is also a sure win since the hype is bigger and it's a sequel of another billion-dollar movie. F and F 6 will only reach $700-800million but will never enter the club. Man of Steel is a more possible answer but I estimate it will only gross $800-900million. Catching Fire is the second possible driven by domestic returns and heavier overseas!
May 6 - 01:33 AM
catching fire has a chance of making to this club,man of steel will turn out2be a gud movie but crossing 1billion mark , given the debacle of last superman movie ,doubtful
May 6 - 06:54 AM
even batman begins gross was 372million becoz of debacle of BATMAN&ROBIN
May 6 - 06:55 AM
The trailers are attached to almost all 3D cinemas. And I always notice that people inside the movie house gets silent every MOS trailer, maybe coz of its attention-catching musical score and theme. Walmart selling 1 million tickets, Superman being the most popular superhero and his shield being one of the most recognized symbol, I guess it has the bigger chance to hit the target than Catching Fire. Batman Begins lacked promotions back then, WB is not too aggressive with it since they focus their promotional budget on Harry Potter. I forgot Hangover 3, it will undeniably beat its predecessor as the highest grossing R-rated film, but yeah, it is also impossible to cross $1 billion but it will outgross F&F6!
May 6 - 08:47 AM
I doubt Man of Steel will cross $1 billion. You'll need AMAZING word of mouth along stellar advertising to get there, because it's not going to open huge. Catching Fire will more likely be bigger than Man of Steel if it's about the same quality as the first movie.
May 6 - 08:07 PM
Well, I doubt both, but Skyfall suprised us, right? Catching Fire will rule domestically of course but the overseas hype is not that high coz only its fans, fans'friends, and young adults will contribute. Man Of Steel on the other hand will score $90-120 million for its opening weekend since it has a big DC fanbase in US, add The Dark Knight Trilogy fans. And for overseas, just by looking at the poster with Superman on it, It could pull groups and families who have been aware about Sup's shield since their young years. Catching Fire doesn't have that bigger capability to pull these audience since it is not that influential or popular in societies of diff age groups. Man Of Steel continues to extend even IM3's hype since it is a superhero movie, and Sup is the most popular superhero worldwide. Here are my estimates for the two movies:
-Domestic - $450 million
-Overseas - $370 million
-Total - $820-870 million
*Man of Steel
-Domestic - $380 million
-Overseas - $500 million
-Total - $880-930 million

Iron Man three will pass 1 billion easy. It is at 700m+ world wide atm.
Hobbit 2? It is coming out after people have already spent a lot of money for Christmas. I don't know.
Fast and Furious 6? Really? That alone makes my think this is a troll post. It will not come near a billion.
May 5 - 09:30 PM
f&f6 trailer have been watched more times than im3&STtrek 2 , fast5 was the only certified fresh movie in the series and made 625million worldwide , it has certain chance of making1billion
May 5 - 10:18 PM
FF6 trailer views isnt going to dictate if a movie make 1 bill or not. im not sure it has the internationl support it will need to hit that. COmpetition wise it could be fine. The only movie i can really think of that will give it trouble is star trek which will be out the week before.
May 6 - 05:15 AM
film business is most unpredictable one,u cant say f&f6 wont cross 1billion
May 6 - 06:59 AM
Nikhil Nhardwaj, film business IS a bit unpredictable, but I'm willing to bet money that Fast & Furious 6 doesn't cross $1 billion. I have a feeling you don't follow box office and are talking out of your ass.
May 6 - 08:03 PM
Nah not sure about fast 6 but the hobbit definitely. I think Man of Steel has potential depending on how good it is.
