    as long as ant man is in it, infinity war will blow star wars out of the water every time
    Many of the arguments we have about this game would not exist if this was a single player focused game like it should have been since day 1.

    Beat how?

    Quality wise, that's very subjective.

    Revenue wise, I think that's mostly due to hype and fandom reception, which barely translates to quality in my opinion.

    You like it or not, IW is better quality in any way compared to TFA.
    Taking crown as record breaker from TFA, IW deserves it.

    Lol I know. It was interesting for a watch but I don’t really have any interest in more of it.

    Infinity War was downright amazing. If it does end up beating TFA then it deserves it.

    It’s showed DC how you can make a movie darkish with humour and give an ensemble cast good screen time and to actually care about them.

    That said, they did great with Christian Bale, and Christopher Reeve will always be Superman, so not sure what’s gone wrong.

    Seems it was to rushed what they were doing to catch up wih MCU, only one solo film before bringing 3 together in BvS and then Justice League. Zack Snyder’s style didn’t quite catch on with general audiences either. They should have gone with someone else after BvS. Aqua man coming out in November.

    I didn’t think Justice League was that bad and might be the 2nd best of the current DC movies behind Wonder Woman. Unfortunately they kept screwing up before that with BvS and Suicide Squad and no one cared about it.

    Yep, you can safely say Zack has helped to make the DC universe movies a laughing stock.

    Aquaman, up there with the Solo movie no one was asking for :smiley: :wink:

    Loved 300 though.

    I don't get how its a laughing stock, or why people feel the need to mock DC? Competition will make both continuously improve and strive to do well, why not love both? I prefer DC overall from my love for comics but still love Marvel too.

    Justice League was nowhere near as bad as critics make it out to be (if its not Marvel critics hate it), it even had a good audience score. Wonder Woman was amazing. Admittedly yeah BvS was average and Suicide Squad was poor, but Aquaman is lining up to be fairly decent, and hoping both DC and Marvel continue to put out films as a comic fan.

    Don't forget, Marvel nearly went bust in the 90s trying to play keep up with DC when they were releasing the Keaton Bats films, which is why Fantastic 4, X-Men etc wont appear currently in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. They had to sell movie rights to those characters.

    Not meaning to rant at you lol, just hate seeing comments mocking DC, or picking a side, particularly on Youtube comments. Love both!

    Yea I’m actually looking forward to Aquaman. I like the change up of his character in Justice League as a whiskey swigging bad boy..I think DCs problem with their current line up was only having solo movies for 2 characters out of Justice League.

    I'm excited for Aquaman too. I'm curious to see how this large scale undersea war is supposed to play out. People who have seen glimpses are praising those battle scenes, and i'm still trying to figure out how it could even work!

    Oh yeah, I agree with that point. DC have rushed too quickly to create a set up universe. But hopefully that was just the dust settling and everything is smooth now. They have made Aquaman fairly 'cool' now! My biggest gripe was being gutted with Green Lantern (or a Green Lantern) not officially being in the JL. Would have been brilliant to see the actual seven in place.

    Going to see Infinity War this afternoon, very excited.

    It's not going to "smash" it, if it breaks it at all. The Force Awakens is already back in the lead in domestic after 4 day totals without adjusting for inflation.

    After 4 days: TFA - $288 million, IW - $282 million

    I said this earlier. It may open strong, and seem it's going to crush all the records. But it's not a Summer movie, it's a Spring movie. School won't be out for another month+. Not to mention in 2 weeks Deadpool 2 opens, and a week after that Solo opens. TFA had no strong competition till it's last week in theaters. Oh, and TFA didn't open in China for nearly 3 weeks after it's US release either (sure it's not as popular, but still made $124 million in China - conversely the best comic book movie in China, Age of Ultron, did $231 million, a $107 million difference).

    Infinity War still has to come up with another $650 million domestically to catch TFA here. It'll be the highest grossing comic book ever, for sure, but it's still doubtful to catch TFA's global/domestic totals.

    Wednesday Update:
    After 5 Days in theaters, TFA stood at $325 Million, Infinity War now stands at $305 million. The gap is now $20 million domestic, up from the 6 million gap yesterday. IW is going to have to have a huge second weekend (better than TFA did) to catch up.

    No chance. The divide is growing domestically (worldwide totals are done week to week but with the work week going on, I can't imagine IW is pacing TFA overseas)

    6 day domestic totals:
    The Force Awakens - $363.4 million
    Infinity War - $322.8 million (current worldwide stands at $857.5 million)
    The difference has doubled in 1 day. This is what I tried to explain to everyone early in the thread. TFA came out during winter break, had a 10 year wait from the last SW movie, and had no competition at all. IW will have to have another $200 million Fri to Sun this weekend in order to try and catch back up to TFA domestically.

    The race update - 7 day totals domestically
    The Force Awakens - $390.85 million
    Infinity War - $338.33 million

    The divide domestically is now $52.5 million

    It's doing slightly better overseas, we'll see if it can catch back up to TFA after this weekend, but I doubt it's going to come close to the $937 million domestic record TFA has.

    Update after 8 days.
    Domestic Box Office
    The Force Awakens - $440.2 million
    Infinity War - $369.8 million

    Difference is now up to $70.4 million. This Friday's IW boxoffice was 70% down from last Friday's boxoffice. TFA only had a 58% drop.

    It's not going to catch TFA's domestic, and unless it gets back on the horse today and tomorrow, not sure it will get to Black Panther's current "Comic Book Movie" domestic record of $690 million. Competition is right around the corner with Deadpool 2 opening in 12 days, and Solo in 20. The marketing onslaught has already begun for both films.

    Both. It's going to be tough to beat the $2.07 Billion TFA made if it can't keep pace with it domestically.
    After the second Saturday of their runs (9 day totals - domestic)
    TFA - $496.9 million
    IW - $416.4 million

    Infinity War crossed $1 billion worldwide in 11 days, 1 day faster than TFA which did it in 12. That being said it has slowed considerably behind TFA domestically. Second weekend Totals for TFA were $149.2 million, Infinity War took in $114.8 million this past weekend.

    Domestic 11 day totals:
    TFA - $540.1 million
    IW - $453.1 million

    IW worldwide boxoffice total is still $901 million behind TFA

    You realize I addressed that in the post you quoted right? It would need to triple the China boxoffice of Age of Ultron at this point to even get close to $2 Billion WorldWide. It's not going to do it. Worldwide total has only gone up $100 million in the 3 days since it broke the $1 Billion mark (that day it stopped at $1.13 Billion) The summer movies are about to hit. 8 Days till Deadpool 2. 15 till Solo.

    Current Domestic standings after 13 days in theaters:
    TFA - $601 Million
    IW - $472 Million
    A difference of $129 million now. Current projections show it equaling or barely surpassing Black Panther's domestic run ($694 million) which would leave it around 200-250 million short of TFA domestically. IW was heavily front loaded with viewings and just doesn't have the holidays/summer days for the needed multiple return showings. People are already getting worn out about talking about IW online and the marketing campaigns for Deadpool 2 and Solo have ramped up significantly, Disney has noticeably moved on already.

    Infinity War will not catch The Force Awakens domestically. After their third weekends in theaters (18 days):
    Infinity War - $547.8 million
    The Force Awakens - $742.2 million
    Nearly a $200 million gap. Infinity War is also only about $46 million ahead of Black Panther's pace. With Deadpool 2 opening this weekend, and Solo the weekend after, I don't think it's going to catch even BP's $696 million domestic box office total.

    As for the worldwide, Infinity War now sits at just over $1.6 Billion total after it's $200 million open in China. It will be hard pressed to come up with another $500 million to surpass The Force Awakens $2.07 billion worldwide total.

    Nearly a $200 million gap. Infinity War is also only about $46 million ahead of Black Panther's pace. With Deadpool 2 opening this weekend, and Solo the weekend after, I don't think it's going to catch even BP's $696 million domestic box office total.

    As for the worldwide, Infinity War now sits at just over $1.6 Billion total after it's $200 million open in China. It will be hard pressed to come up with another $500 million to surpass The Force Awakens $2.07 billion worldwide total.

    I always knew domestically it wouldn't, but idk if world wide it can

    It's $500 million short and has already opened everywhere now. Outside of China, where it just opened Thursday, the international daily returns were slowing just as much as here in the US. It was at 1.2 Billion a week ago, now including the China release it's just over $1.6 Billion. It's gonna need at least $300 million more from China alone which isn't likely. The highest grossing American made film ever in China was Fate of the Furious with a total of $421 million.

    Domestic Totals after 20 days in theaters:
    The Force Awakens: $758.2 million
    Black Panther: $512.7 million
    Infinity War: $558.7 million

    Black Panther keeps adding to it's "Comic Book" Movie domestic record as it's still in 1,370 theaters in the US. It now stands at $696.7 million

    Infinity War is petering out in the US, it's only hope remains China where it's already been in theaters a week. Infinity War's worldwide total is now: $1.67 Billion, now the 5th highest grossing movie of all time about 6 million behind Jurassic World which it should overtake this weekend despite Deadpool 2 opening tomorrow.

    Prediction: Infinity War tops out globally at $1.8 billion, but does not catch Black Panther domestically. Probably ends around 600-625 million domestic.

    Infinity War granted a 30 day extension in China. About to pass 2 Billion and won't release on Digital for almost another 2 months. I think it could pass TFA.

    It's $30 million short of 2 Billion still. And it's down to just over a million a day domestic. It's highly unlikely it can pull in $98 million more to tie TFA, especially when it's been north of $1.9 billion for the better part of 2 weeks now and new movies starting to hit.

    No. No comic book movie has yet to eclipse $700 million domestic, nor $1 billion overseas. TFA is the 3rd highest grossing film of all time worldwide because it had been a decade since a Star Wars movie was released and we had the return of the OT Big 3. Infinity War may not even break the first Avenger's "comic book movie" record of $1.5 billion worldwide.

    Oh wow. I love reading this after Infinity War just hit $2 billion worldwide :dizzy:

    It may not pass TFA worldwide, but it has passed way above your skepticism.

    It did better overseas than any comic book movie ever, true. But it slowed immensely domestically and doesn't appear to be able to surpass Black Panther's domestic comic book record of $690 million. (IW is at $664 million domestic). There was also a reasonable expectation that Solo would take away more ticket sales than it did it. Expected competition for IW panned out in reverse, it ended up still being more competition for Solo along with Deadpool.

    I really don't feel you trying always to find something to complaing about IW's box office performance.
  • It didn't overall, but was really really close. It beat it opening weekend though. Though I didn't like it that much, I'm glad Star Wars still holds the domestic box office record.

    Well doesn’t look like Infinity War will beat TFA but it’s much closer than than pessimists said. I’m actually taking Monday off of work so I can binge the worthy MCU movies with my 14 yr old stepdaughter and 2 of her friends before Infinity War gets released at 9PM. I have a feeling Infinity War 2 will for sure break TFA record.
