PostSubject: Holiday Predictions   Sat Dec 20, 2008 11:07 am

So out of the big list of holiday movies this year, which one do you guys think will make the most, there isnt just one clear cut winner out there, but i'm going to lean towards Marley and Me simply because it was a best seller book and its a movie for all ages.

Here's the list of others to choose from..

Marley & Me
Bedtime Stories
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
The Spirit
Revolutionary Road
Valkyrie

I'm hoping that The Spirit will find some way to get the top spot but as the days get closer and closer it seems harder to believe.. Sad

You can elminate Revolutionary Road, Valkyrie and just maybe cut out Spirit to. I'm probs going to say Marley and Me also, but dont sleep on Bedtime Stories Disney knows how to advertise.

Dont forget about Yes Man Tale of Despereaux and Seven Pounds, they will be good contenders next week also.

I think Marley can get around 35 to 38 mil
and Bed Time coming in 2nd with another 30 mil
then Yes Man, The Spirit, Seven Pounds all in the 20 mil range

I think that The Spirit is going to be a HUGE surprise, look at the crew that it has. The Spirit will end up in 2nd if not 1st, no one really cares for Bed Time Stories, seriously...

Spirit 38 to 42 mil
Marley 38 to 45 mil
Yes Man 30 mil
Seven pounds 30 mil
Bed Time 20 mil

You guys cant overlook The Spirit its going to do amazingly in box office. Sin City and 300 both did really well, its based off a really successful new strip also, i can see 40 million for The Spirit easily...

Benjamin Button will be the sleeper here, its going to do exceptionally well. But i do think that Marley and Me will do the most, i wouldn't be surprise if it does 50 million its opening weekend. After that Bedtime Stories or Benjamin Button both in the 40 mil range.

I'm surprised no one is saying Bedtime Stories will be number 1. It will be the widest release and plays to the biggest audience. I think it can get to 60 million with the number one spot this holiday season.

Seven Pounds isnt even the top of its opening week I highly doubt it will finish 2nd with all these new movies coming in.

I dont know.. just because it will be playing at the most locations doesnt really mean its going to do the best. I'm sort of sick of Sandler now, and i think theres quite a large group that feels the same way about me.

Bedtime Stories will make the most doesnt mean it will be the best, but it will make the most. Atleast 50 million in its pocket. Why will it make the most? It has Disney behind it.

I like what nemo said, "it has Disney behind it". Disney is a powerhouse anything they put out will do really well. Bedtime will be in 1st with 50 million, maybe even 60 mil.

No one wants to see that crap, no one really cares for Adam and Bedtime Stories anymore. After the dumbest movie of 2008 Zohan ppl are just going to say screw Sandler plus theres also a movie thats even cuter and is also a comedy coming out that day... Marley and Me.

The Disney factor is the biggest factor apparently, but i still think that people love pets and therefore will want Marley and Me.

I'm dying to see Marley and me, but i think that Bedtime Stories will make more because i see more advertisements for that movie around than I do for Marley and Me.

Majority of the time the movie with the biggest release ends up being the top of Box Office, those people who just randomly decide to go to the movies are going to pick a movie that starts soon, and since theaters are getting so many prints of Bedtime that movie is going to be starting most often.

November 21st - Bolt was the widest released movie of the week, but it got slammed in Box Office by Twilight, hmm.... Widest release doesnt really mean anything.

Well, I was way off, i'm so surprised that Spirit bombed as much as it did. Horrible time to release this movie.
