EX3 Will Open Huge Next August




Following Andrew's post, I see no reason as to why EX3 won't open to huge business on August 15, 2014. It currently is the only major film slated to open on that date. There may a smaller film added at some point, but no blockbuster competition. The week before, The Hundred-Foot Journey and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles open. TMNT may open solid, but that is a different age bracket. The week after, Sin City: A Dame To Kill For opens. The first Sin City opened to $29 Million, so the sequel could cut into EX3 numbers a bit.

EX1 opened with $34 Million, while EX2 opened with $28 Million. With the unbelievable cast they got, EX3 should open at least $35 Million, hopefully even $40 Million. If we want an EX4, we need it to hit well over $300 Million worldwide. And I think it will. Too much talent involved for it not to.

Patrick Hughes is new, but Red Hill is a great little flick. Stallone will guide him, as always, to get his vision on screen. Peter Menzies, Jr. is their DP. He has shot films such as Shooter, Die Hard With a Vengeance, and the Incredible Hulk. Don Bradley is their Second Unit Director. He is one of the best in the business....and they are lucky to have him. He has worked films such as the last 3 Bourne movies, Quantum of Somace, M:I-Ghost Protocol, and many others.

Don't forget the great cast additions. Harrison Ford....Mel Gibson.....who ever thought you would get both of those guys in an EX movie? Plus Banderas, Snipes, Schwarzenegger, and whoever pops up.

EX3 is gonna be epic! It opens in 50 short weeks from today.

  2. I think this movie will fail in film distribution. It is impossible to deceive so expectations of the viewer. Yes, we will receive Gibson and Ford, but we won't see Jackie Chan, Seagal, Cage, Jovovich and Rourke, which to us promised. I know, many audience is disappointed and offended as well as I. As I don't trust in the fourth part. The second part set a high level, after the third part the authority of the franchize will fall irrevocably. Stars won't want to be removed, and on "young blood" a lot of audience you won't bring together. It is a pity that everything so badly comes to an end. Excuse for my bad English.

    1. No one is disappointed or offended only yourself. It seems you are quick to dismiss EX 3. It will bring in a nice profit easily against it's 100 million budget.

  4. But at such cast the movie becomes mny interesting. Stallone didn't turn out to invite them, didn't turn out the good movie, didn't turn out to continue the franchize. The viewer isn't obliged to look that isn't pleasant to him only because at Stallone didn't turn out.
