may movies

May kicks off Summer Movie season. With the X-men prequel Wolverine on May 1st. The reboot of Star Trek on May 8th. The Da Vinci Code follow-up Angels & Demons on May 15th. The Terminator is back on May 21 along with the sequel to Night at the Museum on the 22nd. Then finally Disney Pixar’s UP on May 29th.

Which of these Blockbusters are you most excited to see?

But who will win the may 2009 opening weekend Box Office?
My predictions:

Wolverine – $84 Million
Star Trek – $71 Million
Angels & Demons – $62 Million
Terminator Salvation – $79 Million
Night at the Museum 2 – $29 Million
Up – $58 Million

Go See Wolverine

wolverine_see

This Friday, X-men Origins: Wolverine comes out in theaters. Although the movie was leaked on the internet a few weeks ago, I am urging everyone to go see it.

I have not seen the bootleg copy or have any clue if the movie is good or not. I DO KNOW that there are a few things that will disappoint me, such as what they did to Deadpool (you can read my Blog about it here). And this disappointment is what lead me to this tell you to go see it. confused?

Fox has said if Wolverine does well, they will make a Deadpool movie. Which would be awesome! They have also said that not only will they consider doing Deadpool, but a Gambit and Magneto film as well. So if there was anytime to go see a movie, This is it. Even if Wolverine isn’t everything we are hoping its going to be, there is a chance that they could do these other films justice.

Last weekend the Fatal Attraction rip off Obsessed starring Beyonce made almost 30 million at the box office. So if people are willing to sit through that crapfest, they must be willing to see Wolverine right?

Opening Weekend Box Office:
X-men – $54 Million
X2: X-men United – $85 Million
X-men: The Last Stand – $102 Million

You would think if this pattern continues Wolverine could make around $120 Million, right? Maybe not. With the leak who knows how many have people have seen it and would be willing to again.

If Wolverine can at least make $60-70 million opening weekend, i would say that would be a success. Any less and it might not be worth it for Fox to make more of these films. So this weekend, grab your friends and go see it, maybe if you have nothing up… go see it again, as Fox has also said that there will be alternate endings (obviously to help counteract the leak).

Plus with Star Trek coming out the weekend after… this might be the only weekend to show your support. So do me this favor. ok?

———-
UPDATE: The Bad and Ugly has some news on the Alternate Endings. [Spoiler Warning]

There are 3 after credit endings… depending on what theater you see it at.
1. Wolverine in Japan (setting up for another wolverine movie maybe?)
2. Weapon XI lives (Deadpool is Alive! Booyeah!)
3. Striker’s s trance is interrupted (What the heck is this?)
