Post Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald predictions
To be released on November 16th, 2018.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is on its way to a better multiplier than all Harry Potter sequels. Only Sorcerer's Stone will end up with better legs, it seems. WoM seems to be positive. I don't think this is another The Hobbit situation. The first sequel should at least have a higher opening weekend.

Opening Weekend - $85 million

Total Gross - $240 million

It seems to me that it is well liked, but not enough to see a significant increase barring a heavy focus on Dumbledore and Grindelwald in the marketing.

I think your prediction sounds about right.

I don't think people really care about Dumbledore or Grindelwald. The Potter base is what it is now. So Beasts 2 will have a higher opening, same total.

Pretty much exactly the same as the FBAWTFT.

So the first one managed to pass $800 million. That's really quite great.

If this is also able to pass at least 700m WW then I think the franchise is in good shape. Domestically I see the sequel passing 200m but not close to the first. It'll be interesting to see what this new one will focus on more.

200 million is close to the first. I'm thinking it opens about the same, and has slightly lesser legs for 215-220 total.

I'm thinking the second will drop a bit but be a better movie, and the third will rebound, especially if Dumbledore will have a big part.

Aren't Dumbledore and Grindelwald supposed to be around the same age?

This is pretty groundbreaking. Isn't this going to be the first gay romance in a blockbuster? And in a fantasy movie? And in a family friendly movie?

Post Re: Fantastic Beasts 2 predictions
I honestly don't know about other people, but the mere presence of Hogwarts and Dumbledore in the trailer got me way more hyped than any of the marketing for the original. Add in the fact there are no Star Wars or Marvel films to steal its thunder, and I'd say it at the very least matches the original if not sees an increase.

My current prediction would be

90/280

It will outgross the first one.

I feel it will loose some audience from the last movie where people were excited to see a new Wizarding World movie but the trailer is also much better and showing Dumbledore would only help.

$70m/$200m total

I thought it was opposite. FB underperformed huge on opening weekend.

I haven't seen the trailer, but the audience for these films is pretty loyal. Making it more Harry Potter-esque will only help. It has to increase domestically. No way it drops.

I thought the latest trailer looked pretty magical, can see this getting close to 300m domestically.
