Now that MCU has released it's 14th hit movie in a row (Doctor Strange), it does seem as if moviemakers have finally figured out a way to guarantee a hit.

Domestic Box Office on 10th day

Iron Man $177,825,024 / 10
Doctor Strange $153,014,169 / 10
Thor $119,455,352 / 10
Captain America $117,421,571 / 10
Ant-Man $106,219,861 / 10
The Incredible Hulk $97,055,430 / 10

Only "The Hulk" out of all 14 movies seems to have had a mediocre performance earning Domestic: $134,806,913+ Foreign: $128,620,638 on a $150 million budget.


Studios reeling from big budget money losers like the films below must be so jealous.

Star Trek Beyond
Ghostbusters (2016)
The Legend of Tarzan
Independence Day: Resurgence
Alice Through the Looking Glass
The Huntsman: Winter's War
Warcraft
Gods of Egypt

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is the next MCU release coming out next May.

It's gonna be HUGE.

I predict it will be their biggest hit behind only the two Avengers movies. Might even do better than the 2nd Avengers did.

That would require a big jump.

Worldwide boxoffice
1 Marvel's The Avengers $1,518.8
2 Avengers: Age of Ultron $1,405.4
3 Iron Man 3 $1,214.8
4 Captain America: Civil War $1,153.3
5 Guardians of the Galaxy $773.3
6 Captain America: The Winter Soldier $714.3

Not every franchise keeps on expanding

Worldwide boxoffice
Star Trek $385.7
Star Trek Into Darkness $467.4
Star Trek Beyond $342.9

Prior to its release, Guardians of the Galaxy was an unknown property. Did your average movie goer know who the Guardians were? No.

Now they do.

It's gonna be a huge hit (assuming it's as good or nearly as good as the 1st - which I suspect it will be).

Long experience has me completely unexcited with new Trek movies. Usually the TV shows are much, much better. Not every episode, but a great many of them. So a movie can be fun, but it likely won't be as good as the better TV eps. Perhaps Trek ][ and the last TNG movie, "First Contact" (YES! It's the last!) come close to eps like "The City on the Edge of Forever," "The Best of Both Worlds," "Whispers," "Parallels," "The Year of Hell," "Mirror, Mirror," and others.

Some are DS9 and even Voyager eps.

I didn't say GoG #2 would fail. I'm just saying that doubling the box office of the first one is a very tall order. You are talking about doubling if you think it will go head to head with the Avengers movies.

The following sequels exceeded their original by the following amount (worldwide).

7% Iron Man 2
43% Thor: The Dark World
93% Captain America: The Winter Soldier

18% Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

Now Captain America nearly doubled, but the first one was a relatively modest hit.

I'd say it'll end up in the Iron Man 3 range.

I thought the 2nd Avengers movie had a more significant Box Office drop off from the first one than it did...
