I’ve been meaning to talk about the Wolverine leak but for some reason, I haven’t. So this is the lucky day because I found something interesting about it.
So we all know it leaked. Whether it was on accident or not is still to be decided, despite the fact that they say the FBI is hot on the case. But call me crazy, there’s going to be way more buzz about the much awaited X-Men movie if the leak was on “accident.”
Anyway, Ad Age is predicting that Wolverine will make $100 million opening weekend, which is twice as much what they are predicting for the new Star Trek movie. Both movies have had a lot of buzz but with the leak, Wolverine has had a lot more. So the prediction makes sense when only considering the amount of buzz.
The predictions don’t make as much sense when you consider the reviews for the movies. Star Trek fans have been going crazy for the new movie and the reviews from trekkies who got a sneak peak have been crazy good. On the other hand, online reviews for Wolverine have been really crappy.
So I guess we’ll find out in a few weeks who wins: buzz or quality?
