Very shortly Thor will have made back its' budget even domestically & I wouldn't be surprised if it doesn't even pass 'Begins'.

The sad thing about this though is that what might be considered a '2nd-tier' character in comics films has turned out to be a smash hit! While Singerman, which was supposed to have been SUPERMAN, gets severely humbled at the box office. That's really saying something!

Actually, 'THOR' has already surpassed 'Batman Begins' in all-around box office.

Batman Begins (2005)
Domestic: $205,343,774
+ Foreign: $167,366,241
= Worldwide:$372,710,015

It just needs about $60 million dollars more domestically to beat those numbers here. Will it get that much? Not too sure, but it's possible. All I DO know is, it needs about $9 million to top Singerman.

It'll do that by next weekend.

Consider it done:

http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=thor.htm

Total Lifetime Grosses
Domestic: $150,345,000 37.6%
+ Foreign: $249,510,315 62.4%
= Worldwide: $399,855,315


And interesting the amount of time it's been:

Widest Release: 3,963 theaters
In Release: 21 days / 3 weeks

So in just 3 weeks Thor has obliterated Singerman! And keep in mind that these totals were just through Thursday, 5/27/2011. Now we have a big holiday weekend ahead of us with 4 days for Thor to rake in even more cash!

When it's all said & done, it's not even gonna be funny for Singerman! Laughing

Domestic- $162,375,000
Foreign- $249,510,315
Worldwide- $411,885,315
URL- http://boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=thor.htm

Thus far, Thor has proven to have good legs in the States. Obviously Singerman could never make the same claim as Thor has already internationally outgrossed it.

Even so, it's like anything else; raw numbers really only tell part of the story. All Apologists seem to understand is the bottom line (and that only when it seems to make Singerman or BJ look good). But since we deal in reality around here, let's check out Thor's weekend breakdowns.

Week 01, May 06–08- (Rank #1) $65,723,338
Week 02, May 13–15- (Rank #1) $34,703,035
Week 03, May 20–22- (Rank #3) $15,455,304
Week 04, May 27–29- (Rank #5) $9,400,000
Week 04, May 27–30- (Rank #5) $12,030,000

In short, the movie's been out for four weeks now and is still in the top five of box office performers. At the equivalent point in Singerman's theatrical run, it was poised to fall out of the top 10 even though it was playing on only 470 fewer screens than Thor was this weekend (which shouldn't matter too much since it opened on more screens than Thor).

Once again, if you make an entertaining movie that people want to see and leave the bullshit politics and bartenders and agendas and pleather at home, your movie is going to earn money.

Not really about Singerman but on Comedy Central, some program called 'TOSH 2.0', which I ain't really familiar with but still had it on that channel after a movie. Anyway, the guy asks the question, "Do you want to be alone? Then go see X-MEN: FIRST CLASS!" So apparently some comedian is already taking 'pot-shots' at the film even before its' release. Not that that should necessarily be a surprise in & of itself, but I can't help but feel that he was doing this because people think the film is gonna blow! I guess kind of like we were taking shots at BJ's latest flop, Dylan Does Dogs. We were so sure of it's 'flop-ability' that we were poking fun at it beforehand. And 'BJ', not exactly one to disappoint, did even worse than we expected!

Thor, OTOH, was just a 'fun summer movie' & it worked! If only some of these other films would follow said formula. Suspect

Seriously. Can't remember if I ever publicly said it but I think I ball-parked something like $3 mill in the US because it was known to be getting one hell of a limited release. Not bad, I was only 2/3's off... man, what a turd-bomb that one turned into. Seems it was pulled after three weeks and a mere 875 screens. To call it "pathetic" somehow seems an insult to things that really are pathetic.

Here's something else. I can't really think of much in Thor that I wouldn't want a kid to see. I can't really recall any cussing, bloodshed, sex stuff or really anything to offend most peoples sensibilities. And the movie's doing GREAT! Hey, it's a fun superhero film that you can take your kids to see! And dude, that ain't as common as someone might first think. I suspect one reason Thor has shown the legs that it has is because families are getting word of mouth that they can take, say, their 7 or 8 year old kid to see it without worrying too much about the content.

To me, this is the ultimate no-brainer. You make a superhero movie with plenty of action and without too much questionable content, you'll do good numbers at the box office. If Thor's anything to judge by (and I obviously think it is), it really is as simple as that!

Take note, Goyer, Nolan and Snyder.

And to be clear, no, you can't do this necessarily with every single superhero film. Doing this with a comic book like Watchmen would have totally destroyed the tone and intent of the story. Ditto stuff like the Punisher and whatnot. This isn't a hard and fast rule. I'm just saying that not every superhero film needs to be filled with violence, swearing, pointless sex, depressing themes and other shit like that.

The same formula that worked for Thor should really work for SUPERMAN! Singer didn't realize that & he paid the price! And so did we, the fans! I just hope that Snyder gets this right. IF Snyder is still doing this film?! I read that BS article link from the General News thread but seriously, the apprehension about the reboot seems to be growing. But yeah, hopefully all will be resolved but still, the reboot should be made like Thor, i.e., FUN! tongue
