So, the long-range forecast from BoxOffice.com doesn't look great. They're estimating a $38M opening weekend and a $110M domestic total. They'll be updating it every Friday, but that's where they stand now.

Using the same 2.89 DOM/OW ratio BoxOffice figured, Lionsgate is probably going to want at least a $51M opening weekend and a $148M domestic total.

Agreed. The way I see it is the second movie will adapt the green ranger saga while introducing Zedd, the third movie will be where Tommy gets the white ranger powers and some variation of the Thunder zords appear, then the fourth or fifth bring in the Ninja zords and powers, and finally the Zeo powers in the sixth or seventh film.

You should know better than to post negative theories, silly! Because:

But they're wrong and it'll make a billion and if it doesn't it wasn't supposed to be for the masses it was just for us and also pirating and sneaking in and reasons.

I already outlined why I don't want us posting from that website. So let's not and say we did.

Sorry, I didn't see where you said that. I'll shut up about it.

Somehow I don't think they'll be aiming to hit all these predictable beats. They want to keep fans guessing at every turn, not merely adapt episode arcs we've already seen.

Yeah no point in adapting the Ninjetti powers twice.

Three times, really. At this stage, it's honestly safe to just throw away "This has to happen because the show did it". They're not following that rule.

They're probably going to mix certain elements for the sequel or sequels. I don't see every season getting its own movie...

In the same breath, they say how the movie will bring in families and be successful but then that it won't even make back its budget domestically. It doesn't make any sense. Plus, I just don't see how such projections can be made this far out when so many variable are still at play. How will the final promotional push go? What will its critical reception be? These things affect box office numbers far more than whatever factors they're using to come up with these numbers now.

To be fair, they could be projecting a better overseas performance than they are here in the US/Canada.

The response to the trailers can't be ignored. I think people are being too pessimistic about its chances. The reception of the trailers has been phenomenal and far beyond anything I ever expected. The interest is there. People will see this movie as long as Lionsgate can keep their attention over the next two months and the reviews are at least decent. I see no reason why it can't make a hell of a lot more than $110 million domestically.

When does Japan get the film again?

After all, if this is a scale we've never seen before, you KNOW they haven't seen it before and they put rubber suits in the top 5 on a regular basis.

They get it in July, so we'll have to wait a while to see how it does. Of course, I'm hoping by that time, it won't particularly matter because it will have already been successful enough domestically and elsewhere overseas. Successful in Japan or not, if the movie doesn't do well enough here, we aren't going to get any more movies.

But again, hoping a movie does well overseas because it failed here isn't a good situation to be in. Lionsgate doesn't make anything off of their movies overseas. They sell the international distribution rights to fund their movies. They need it to do well here. Yes, their margin of success is smaller because of this model, but $110 million won't cut it.

How many times has Pacific Rim 2 been delayed and even cancelled? It's hardly a runaway success. Again, barely successful isn't really successful, especially when it negatively affects the public perception. People know Pacific Rim 2 has gone through hell to be made and the studio doesn't really want to make it. That doesn't translate to a lot of interest from the general audience.

So, no, making $110 million here and then hoping it does well in China is not a good situation to be in. Now, I don't think it will actually do that poorly here. I think it has a very good chance to be very successful domestically. But if it isn't, we can't cling to China and Japan like it will somehow undo the damage done by flopping in the US where it really counts for our chances for a franchise to develop.
