The huge critical and commercial success of Black Panther has infinitely raised everyone’s expectations of how big can Infinity war go in terms of box office numbers. I would say 1 billion is a safe bet but how far can Infinity War really go?
The anticipation and expectations are sky high, if the reviews are disappointing how much will that affect the box office?
What box office numbers, metacritic and rotten tomato scores are you guys predicting?March 26, 2018 at 3:52 am #1202519152
It’s gonna double black panther’s earnings. Ratings wise im guessing 70%-80% range.March 26, 2018 at 4:05 am #1202519154
Box Office: $1.07b
Rotten Tomatoes: 97%March 26, 2018 at 6:07 am #1202519183
Box Office – $310m (Domestic Opening), $730m (Domestic Gross) $1,610m (WW Total)
Ratings – 86% RT, 76 MCMarch 26, 2018 at 6:50 am #1202519197
Are you talking $1bil domestic or world-wide?
I certainly don’t see it reaching $1bil domestic…March 26, 2018 at 7:47 am #1202519216
1 billion Domestic? The third film in a franchise? With a fourth one still happening next year? No.
Black Panther didn’t happen because it’s good, or even great. It had other factors helping it. Infinity War won’t have that. There’s a chance it doesn’t even reach Black Panther’s domestic numbers.
I can see it opening to huge numbers, but I doubt it reaches the original or BP.March 26, 2018 at 7:54 am #1202519218
I hope it bombs so that this superhero nonsense would finally die down.March 28, 2018 at 8:30 am #1202520350
Producer Kevin Feige should win an honorary Special Achievement Oscar for developing a decade-long narrative “cinematic universe.” It’s a story-telling and producing wonder. And doing so in a year with Black Panther & Avengers Infinity War (assuming Ant-Man & The Wasp is also successful), it makes sense. Not only had it not been done before, the business and critical reception these films have received have been phenomenal. Not to mention the careers he’s catapultedApril 5, 2018 at 12:28 pm #1202524711

Careers he catapulted?
Sure they became big names…because these movies keep coming out.
Everybody from the Avengers flopped with every other nom-Marvel film they’ve done except Jurassic World, Lucy and Sherlock Holmes? Even with that film Pratt has flopped with Magnificent Seven and Passengers.
Johansson (Lucy is her only success), Evans (zero hits), Hemsworth (flop after flop after flop), Downey (the first Shelock is his one real hit) have more flops than successful films. I’m not counting Ruffalo and Renner since they’re not that type of actor (although there’s that Bourne film).
Ruffalo is really the one who maintained his career successful in his own lane, with two Oscar nods (which would’ve happened without any of his Marvel films). Nothing really amazing happened to Rudd or Cumberbatch either. They kept doing their thing.April 6, 2018 at 11:03 am #1202525278
Snark all you want, studios bank on every single one of those names you mentioned. But let’s give you that point, knock off the box office power of the stars (and really, outside of Leonardo DiCaprio & Dwayne Johnson, there aren’t a lot of surefire draws anymore.)
My point was the cinematic universe concept. Feige carefully guided multiple franchises with a shared narrative to a $15 billion worldwide gross. It’s a concept studios attempted to mimic (with middling-to-awful results.) It’s a producing, writing & marketing breakthrough that will be studied for years. Even people who hate these movies and the genre have to respect the milestone. And the fact that they’ve been successful & well-reviewed is a near miracle (look at how badly Justice League blew up in Warner Bros face after all the good fortune Wonder Woman gave them.)
