Summer Blockbusters update …
Posted by austinburns on June 23, 2006
So, I figure we're halfway through the summer movie season, so it's time to evaluate mine and EW's predictions for summer movie dominance.
|1.||X-Men: The Last Stand||$218,806,943|
|2.||The Da Vinci Code||$200,824,246|
|3.||Over the Hedge||$141,025,611|
|4.||Mission Impossible: III||$130,631,596|
So, I can feel confidant that Poseidon did indeed bomb. Cars stil has some gas (so to speak) to pass MI:III. Superman could run away with it all, depending on how good it ends up being. It doesn't seem that The Break-Up will overtake MI:III, though.
With Superman, Talladega Nights, Pirates, and Miami Vice still to come out, it's anyone's ballgame. Another update at the end of the summer, late September, maybe?
Another interesting table is one for Global grosses:
|1.||The Da Vinci Code||$679,778,601|
|2.||X-Men: The Last Stand||$400,243,032|
|3.||Mission Impossible: III||$334,585,381|
|4.||Over the Hedge||$159,069,192|
So, Da Vinci rules globally, the Poseidon did much better overseas, and the rest of the world at least tolerates Tom Cruise more than we do. Stay tuned for further updates.
