Bold Predictions: 2016 Edition- Watson’s Rebuttal

goldcoinsI’m totally off the grid these days, but Ryan’s predictions are so bad I had to come in and rip them to shreds and give you the REAL numbers.  His bold predictions about how the 2015 domestic box office would turn out were pretty weak.  He called his performance was mixed–but for him mixed was chocolate plus peanut butter.  In reality, it is a mix of Ex-lax and motor oil.  So I am going to go, one by one, through his 2016 picks and give the real number.  We have a lunch bet on who has the lowest delta between the acutals and their predictions.  NO PRICE IS RIGHT RULES IN EFFECT!

Bold Predictions: 2016 Edition

goldcoinsOne year ago I made some bold predictions about how the 2015 domestic box office would turn out.  My performance was mixed–got some, missed some others.  But now it’s time to look ahead to 2016.  Jump after the break to see what I predict will be the top ten grossing films of the year along with 33 other movies I’m making some bold predictions on!

What Movies Could Sneak Into 2015’s Top Ten Grossing Films? (or “How Bad is Ryan’s B.O.?”)

jurassic-world

In a January article by Gabbing Geek’s own Ryan Garcia, he predicted the 2015 Top Ten Grossing films (domestic).  Rule of thumb says that to crack the top ten,  a film will need to surpass $200M+. Some of Ryan’s picks were right.  Some were wrong.    Where will we wind up and what could spoil Ryan’s top ten list?

Shooting Stars: Which Hollywood Superstars Are Losing Their Edge?

depp pirates

In an article originally published in January, Gabbing Geek asked whether Johnny Depp was intentionally trying to end his A-List movie star status.  The quirky Depp may be tired of franchises, but there are other A-listers who seem to be on the same downward trajectory.  They, however, don’t seem to WANT to be shooting stars.  Whose careers are in the toilet and what can they do to can back on top?  We at Gabbing Geek investigate!

ICYMI: Coulda Been Casting: 80’s X-Men Movie

xlogo

I spent many hours as a kid not just praying my favorite superheroes would get their own big budget action movies, but actually casting these can’t miss vehicles with the stars of the day.  Forget the budgetary impact of having all the biggest stars of my youth in one movie, the only limitation was my imagination!  It was quite a way to toil away the time; necessary as Words With Friends was still decades away.

Wolverine Auditions

Sean Bean rhymes with Wolverine.  I say give it a shot.
Sean Bean rhymes with Wolverine. I say give it a shot.

Hugh Jackman has let it be known that he will not be portraying Wolverine again after the upcoming Wolverine 3:  Old Grey Mare She Ain’t What She Used To Be.  Regardless of whether or not this turns out to be the case, Fox will want to have a new Wolverine.  There’s already been multiple Hulks, Xaviers, Magentos, Green Goblins, and Spider-Mans (Spider-Men?), and that’s just Marvel, so a new Wolverine is almost a given.

Say, was anyone auditioned yet?  Check after the obviously clickbaiting cut.

Wolverine 3 Is Old Man Logan?

Yes, that is a Venom symbiote over a dinosaur.

Hugh Jackman is going to play Wolverine one last time.  At the San Diego Comic Con over the weekend, he suggested his final go-around with the character may be based off the “Old Man Logan” storyline.

That…would be a great send-off for the character actually.  Too bad they can’t make a particularly faithful adaptation.

Disney is going to make so much money in 2015 they’re recreating the Duck Tales title sequence in their offices.

 

2015 is not going to break records at the box office.  2015 is going to utterly demolish box office records on the heels of two mega-performers and a market that is ready to have some fun in the movie theater again.  Especially after this downer of an Oscar season.  But what ten movies am I boldly predicting will be the top in the 2015 box office?  Before we get to the top ten, let’s see what nine films will miss the cut.
