Box Office Predictions: 'Thor: The Dark World' Looks to be the Next Avenger at #1

Just how big will the latest Marvel sequel bank?

Weekend Box-Office Predictions

Thor the Dark WorldThor: The Dark World will crush the box office this weekend, our only goal is to predict just how much of a sequel bump we're looking at. This guy (me) is going slightly under tracking, predicting a $83.6 million weekend. My reasoning is that the original opened at $65.7 million, and I just feel like plus $20 million is asking too much. Thor 2 certainly is broad, and a huge number wouldn't surprise me in the slightest, but my oracle eye is a little bearish.

The rest of the weekend is shrouded in mystery, you might want to break out your Ouija board to have a shot. Why? Because as of this writing our next two titles merely list "nationwide expansion" under theater counts, which honestly could mean anything at this point. 750 theaters? 2,000?

The first film up for consideration is 12 Years a Slave. You might want to hang back until the actual theater counts are released, but then of course you won't get your tie-breaking numbers in. I get the dilemma. But I'm facing my own problems as I'm dancing in the dark over here, figuring 750 theaters and just under $8 million. I wish you luck.

Next up, About Time. Another "nationwide expansion", only this one I'm giving a generous 1,000 theaters based on pure speculation. Those figures get the film to $4 million, because I see a slight downgrade in per theater average due to less enforced scarcity.

Finally, The Book Thief is a known quantity, boasting of a mighty four theaters. I'm plugging in $60,000 because there are no huge name attached and the early reviews aren't glowing (only 50 percent on RottenTomatoes). But as always with these new extremely limited releases the per theaters averages can skyrocket, that's just New York and Los Angeles for you.

I now place the predictions in your capable hands, let's see your best calls on this weekend's shenanigans.

Current Record: 25-52-3 against the wisdom of crowds.

    I don't know why they don't release the Thor movies on Thursday. It is Thor's day after all.

      Actually, first showings begin today (Thursday) at 8pm. Many theaters are having a Thorsday marathon of Thor, Avengers, and Thor 2. What I'm surprised about is IMAX bumping Ender out or making it share the theater with Thor 2.

    12 Years a Slave is in at least three theaters in the Tampa area. To me that means either the theater count is higher than 750, or the distributor just loves our market for some reason.

      I found estimates of 1000 screens for 12 Years A Slave, and 1200 for About Time. Maybe Laremy doesn't like to waste time googling?

        I'm probably way under on About Time then, I just didn't feel like there's as much "buzz" for it as 12 Years a Slave.

    I just put 81 for Thor and I'm suddenly thinking more like high 70's. Iron Man 3 went up around 30% but I don't believe Thor is at that level and I don't think it will get similar lift.

      YAS? That's taking the acronym concept a bit far haha

    Wow, I'm the lowest Thor tipper with 70m!!! 70M is still a lot, happy to low ball this one.

    I'll be contributing to the box office totals of 12 Years a Slave and Blue is the Warmest Color this weekend! The reviews have downgraded Thor to most likely a rental for me.
