In a summer that is (going to be) chock full of blockbusters, is there going to be one that will surprise everyone with it’s success? Well, Movietickets.com is reporting that early tracking for The Incredible Hulk might actually beat out Iron Man with it’s opening weekend. Surely a difficult feat, with the Iron Clad hero raking in close to $100 Million in its first weekend.
The popular movie ticketing site used the “buzz factor” in determining this. The “buzz factor” is basically how many people are aware of a new movie opening. For Iron Man, this was 36%. The Incredible Hulk as of right now stands at 49%. Does this really determine how well a movie is going to do? In my personal opinion, it doesn’t. Just because people know that a movie is coming out doesn’t mean they’re necessarily going to see it. I mean.. I knew Speed Racer was coming out, but I still didn’t see it.
If they’re right, The Incredible Hulk should translate to about $130 Million. Since the last one wasn’t so hot, I think I can safely say that the only Big Green putting up huge numbers will be my hometown Boston Celtics. The Incredible Hulk, while faring well, won’t be angry enough to muscle Iron Man aside.
Sound Off: Do you think that The Incredible Hulk could have a bigger opening weekend than Iron Man did?
