Yeah, 2014 sucked at the movie box office. Let’s just admit it. Numbers were down. It was shit. Fortunately, 2015 looks like one of the most promising years in decades. In fact, if people don’t show up to the theater this year, there’s a serious problem because, to paraphrase Stefan, these next 12 months have EVERYTHING.
Raptors, Terminators, Paul Walker, Iron Man, Minions, Kevin Hart, Chris Pratt on a motorcycle, Cinderella, Tom Cruise’s most popular franchise, The Rock, a Disney film based off a theme park location, Captain America, archery, CGI that looks like Paul Walker, a talking Teddy Bear that likes strippers, James Bond, more Kevin Hart, boy Thor, that Fantastic Four movie no one asked for, earthquakes, Star Wars, Philip Seymour Hoffman’s ghost, Jennifer Lawrence Oscar Bait, the Incredible Hulk and that thing where we almost see Jamie Dornan’s dick a bunch of times.
A lot of these movies are going to be incredibly popular, but they can’t all be runaway hits. So, I’m going to put my critical reasoning hat on and make some bold predictions. I’m going to forecast the 10 highest grossing movies of 2015. So, get on your judgmental faces and join me. These will be the 10 most popular 2015 movies at the WORLDWIDE BOX OFFICE.
10. Ant-ManRelease Date: July 17th, 2015
Worldwide Box Office Guess: $775,000,000
Reason: After the raging success of Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy, it’s tempting to say the superhero studio has the power to make a fortune on damn near anything. Hell, Saturday Night Live even wrote an entire sketch about it. It’s important to keep in mind, however, that Guardians had tremendous reviews and tremendous word of mouth. Without those, it wouldn’t have done anywhere near the business it did, and with Ant-Man victimized by tons of behind the scenes drama, it might be a stretch to expect the same type of finished product.
