I'm hoping for SUPERMAN RETURNS, but I'm not sure it will beat out CARS or PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN 2 - even if it's a much better film. I don't think THE DAVINCI CODE is going to make much more than $125 million or so...just a gut feeling - how many teenagers are going to swamp to that film, and how many repeat viewings will it get? I'm guessing not many.

Spiderman 3 isn't until Summer 2007, I believe.

1. POTC: DMC $250
2. Cars $210
3. Supes $190
4. X3 $185

This is very early. I'm choosing Superman Returns #1 because it's the start of a new updated franchise. Also, the fact that we haven't had a new Superman movie in 18+ years doesn't hurt.

1. Superman Returns
2. Cars
3. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest
4. Mission: Impossible III
5. The Da Vinci Code

These could be in the top 10: Poseidon, X-Men 3, The Break Up, Rush Hour 3, Casino Royale, Eragon

I would have picked this because it's my personal most-anticipated flick since "The Phantom Menace" (and god knows it should be better than THAT) - but when it got NO reaction to a packed house of teenagers and kids at the opening of GOBLET OF FIRE, I thought to myself "Does anyone under 30 want to see a new Superman film?" So I'm thinking a $175 to $200 million take is probably more realistic...which means it won't make its COST back, so...like KONG...everyone will be calling it a "flop"!

I really don't know if Superman Returns will be the "Spider-Man" of 2006 or "The Hulk." Too hard to tell from what I've seen so far.

I would say it's going to be the "Batman Begins" of 2006.

Superman Returns - with all due respect to Shannon Nutt, I don't think a tepid reaction from one theater is indicative of how a movie will do box office wise. Especially since it was just a teaser. But then again, I'm biased so what do I know? :-)

DaVinci Code - I think most, if not all of those who read the book--and there are a LOT of them--will see it at least once.

POTC2 - It's Johnny Depp. It's Orlando Bloom. It's Keira Knightley. It's Disney. What's not to like?

CARS - It's Pixar and with their track record, I don't see this breaking the trend.

MI:3 - Tom Cruise fans will watch it. Katie Holmes fans will watch it. TomKat fans will watch it. JJ Abrams fans will watch it. Add that all up. :-)

Not sure yet about X:3. I think it'll get eaten up by my boy blue.

Mission: Impossible 2 was a box office juggernaut, so M:I:3 will probably do gangbusters. Pirates of the Carribean will also make a ton of dough.

X3 will open big, but its staying power will depend on whether those rumors of Brett Ratner killing the series are true or not. DaVinci Code has a mammoth following, and so does Tom Hanks, so unless they pull a "The Chamber" or "The Sum of All Fears" on it, it should do great.

I was thinking about the Da Vinci Code since it is one of the biggest books in quite a few years + the Hanks factor, but I am not sure it is family friendly enough. I think POTC 2, Cars and Superman are all pretty safe bets.

Those were my thoughts, initially...but look at the numbers for Memoirs so far. There are other big adaptations coming, too (like Running with Scissors, to name one). If I've learned one thing, it's that you shouldn't judge a film's potential box office based on it's source material's selling history.

Granted, this book has been read by more people than Memoirs (and other comparable adaptations in the past), but I don't think I'd count on seeing every reader in the megaplex. If anything carries this movie to a huge box office, it will be the source material, but only in combination with Hanks for the masses, Tautou and and Reno for the film buffs, and Howard for the...well, Howard fans.
