Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

Wow, the 71% weekend drop-off is higher than the massive 69% drop-off for Hulk during its second weekend back in 2003. Perhaps it is possible Man of Steel won't be the huge hit the opening weekend portended.

71% is the Friday-to-Friday drop-off, which is inflated because the opening Friday includes the midnight sneaks. The drop-off for the full weekend looks to be about 65%, which is still hefty, but not as bad as Hulk.

It's locked to be a hit relative to its budget and a sequel is assured. Worst case scenario for the domestic gross is $275 million, and Warners will no doubt strive to give it the push it needs to get to $300 million. It's looking good for $400-450 million from international markets, so the worldwide gross should be north of $700 million.

There's usually consequences for that sort of thing. Cavill could end up in the direct-to-video bin right next to poor Brandon Routh.

It already is, bumping up against 350 million worldwide in its first eleven days of release. A big domestic dropoff under these circumstances means nothing.

Yeah it's almost certain we'll at least get a MOS sequel. But whether we still get a Justice League and other DC films seems a bit less certain now, I think.

Although if nothing else, the opening weekend numbers suggest that there IS an interest out there.

Looks like the estimate for the weekend is $41 mil, for a total of $210 mil. Which is still pretty impressive after two weeks.

Its not like people are stopping seeing it either... I know plenty of people that give movies a pass for a couple weeks due to crowds and the like.

The movie's fine. I'm not too worried about it, this is just a crowded weekend with two big competitors eating away at its audience.

I think these kinds of drop offs are one of the bad things about them the summer movie season being so crowded. I think a lot more movies would probably do bigger numbers if they gave them more room to breath.

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

It's been a really crowded box office these last two months. I think the same kind of drop off happened to "Star Trek: Into Darkness" it's second weekend thanks to "The Hangover III" or "Fast Six" and it continued to plummet while still grossing decent numbers total. The same thing will most likely happen with "Man of Steel".

Also I don't think this weekend's gross makes it any less certain about a "Justice League" film or more DC Cinematic films than we were last weekend. We still haven't really got any information officially through Warner Brothers on either a sequel or future films and they still continue to not tell us their plans regarding those films. They might be saving this for SDCC next month but who the heck knows with them. We instead continue to get rumours through third party "reports" rather than actual reports. I think these things are still up in the air...and now with the Robinov situation developing...not sure how his departure will affect those previous "plans".

Star Trek Into Darkness had a much smaller second weekend drop and it's mostly held up well on subsequent weekends. STID's opening was smaller than expected, but it's held up well. Man of Steel got the big opening, but had a big second weekend drop. Both will get the numbers they need for sequels. Different routes to the same outcome.

It might be an issue for the sequel's Box Office run but the 2nd week drop is no issue to the reboot at all.

I've tried that strategy myself and I often find it to be self-defeating. After a couple of weeks you just find yourself there along with every other ************ who got the same bright idea.
