    Who thinks it is posible that Transformers will gross more then the $1,835,300,000 Titanic did worldwide. If not where in this list do you think it will land?

    If it does I can see a refrence in the second movie of the Titanic sinking.

    Titanic was a one-off.

    I'd say TF can gross upwards of 700 million at the least. It will be Bay's biggest film.

    TF might surpass Titanic in Japan. If there's anything the Japanese love more than DiCaprio and Winslet on a sinking liner, its mecha.

    I'd like to compare TF with Jurassic Park back in '93 - family friendly features with ground breaking effects. Remember when dinosaurs first romped to view back then? It was such a massive hoo-haa. TF is similar that way - except its all about robots. Though robots won't create as massive a frenzy as the dinos did back in '93, I think the sense of cinematic wonder is shared.

    At its heart, film is the experience of seeing something u can't see in real life being brought to life on celluloid. Spielberg knows this well and saw the potential of bringing the impossible to life in TF. It will be a dazzling experience. So, yes, TF is this decade's Jurassic Park.

    thats impossible to do domestically

    movies nowdays don't do those kinda numbers. We're talking about 600 million domestically. Its got to be a REALLY universal movie

    I'm not even sure that the list you linked to has much value. It doesn't say whether or not it's adjusted for inflation.

    I don't have a 'pulse' for the movie (i.e. what "real" people think about it, since I don't get out. The hype machine sure is in full swing, but that doesn't necessarily mean anything.

    There's no chance it'll even come close to Titanic. On that list if it places anywhere in 30 - 50 we'll be doing well.

    I remember when Matrix was on that last back in 1999. It was like ranked 48 or 49 out of 50. At that time, you only needed to do $170+ million to be on that list......8 years ago.

    girls took their boyfriends to see titanic. Then their girlfriends. Then their othere girlfriens. Then their mothers.

    Then by themselves just to see leo again.

    Transformers isn't going to do that kind of money. In fact I think the studio will be happy if they can beat spidey 3.

    no way. I'm just being honest. Women outnumber Men so this is unlikely to happen. That's the sad truth however, I think TF movie will make some big money (hopefully).

    [Mr. Wong] Hell to the no! [/Mr. Wong]

    I don't believe so. Titanic was just a freak happening, came out at the right time I suppose. I wouldnt be surprised if TF beats out Spidey 3 or Pirates 3 this Summer.

    No way it will beat Titanic. Titanic was a phenomenon. There are actually a lot of actual Titanic enthusiasts as well, not just the ladies that loved Leo. Personally, I am a Titanic enthusiast and I saw it TEN times! I know call me crazy but I just loved that movie. At the time I was in college majoring in history and was still totally into Titanic as much as, or more, as I am into Transformers now. Unlike Transformers, which is always changing, the Titanic stays the same. Once you know so much, there isn't much new to know.

    The Transformers Movie will probably beat Titanic because of the number of Transformers fans that have been around for a while.

    the key to this movie doing well. by well I mean over 500 million is that it needs to be a good movie that appeals not only to fans of the toy line and shows but also to people that are not fans of the product line. If it can do that then with the price of movie tickets where they are at then it could be very large. I'm guessing it will get Spiderman type numbers.
