the idea is to guess correctly or get close to box office totals of Godzilla king of the monsters, the prize is bragging rights.

mine is 700m to 750m

2014 Godzilla - 200M Domestic, 529 M WW (160M Budget)
2017 Kong - 168M Domestic, 566M WW (185M Budget)

Keep in mind if you consider the 3X budget multiplyer, BOTH of these films were just *barely* profitable

2019 King of the Monsters... NEEDS to make at least $650M WW to be considered profitable, let alone successful...I have little doubt this movie will be amazing, I just don't know how much general audiances even want a Monsterverse right now. I'm fairly certain that it will do well in non-US markets, but it's got heavy competition with a May 31 release date. It may get buried between other tentpole pictures

4/26 Avengers: End Game
5/24 Aladdin
5/31 Godzilla - King of the Monsters
6/7 Dark Phoenix
6/7 Secret Life of Pets 2
6/14 MIB International
06/21 Toy Story 4

Disney is tough for me to get a read on, because I'm not a big fan of their films. I have no idea what audiences want. I thought Mary Poppins was going to blow away the Holiday competition. I was quite happy to be wrong. But with Aladdin, I look a the last "shot-for-shot" live action remake Disney did (Beauty & the Beast) raked in 1B+

Godzilla has a shot at being #1 in it's opening weekend, if Aladdin receives a luke warm reception, however if it takes off, Godzilla will never do better than #2, which is sad.
There are no more good TV Shows, only ones that haven't disappointed me yet.

Aladdin is PG though and this is PG-13. Despite the overlap I think this will do well. 300M domestic. 400M overseas for a total of 700 worldwide

I'm guessing somewhere between $0.35 and 10 billion dollars. Somewhere in there.
