What to Expect When You're Expecting- $56 million
Men in Black III- $189 million
Snow White and the Huntsman- $179 million
Prometheus- $185 million
Rock of Ages- $112 million
That's My Boy- $133 million (Cruise and Sandler sink)
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter- $49 million
Brave- $285 million
Seeking a Friend for the End of the World- $79 million
G.I. Joe: Retaliation- $150 million (N/A)
Magic Mike- $27 million (Yeow)
The Amazing Spider-Man- $255 million
Savages- $49 million
Ted- $75 million (BIG MISS)
The Dark Knight Rises- $494 million
Neighborhood Watch- $101 million
The Bourne Legacy- $120 million
Total Recall- $75 million
The Expendables 2- $133 million
Premium Rush- $44 million
The Wettest County/Lawless- $79 million

Summer Bombs: Savages, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter & The Dictator.

Besides Brave, I refuse to pick cartoons. I can never get a read on kiddie money.

I made my honest picks but then I looked over the list and noticed I had only superheroes breaking the 200 million mark. I'm sticking to it but if Prometheus gets good reviews it'll pick up steam and break $200 million.

I was looking for this year's Rise of The Apes on that list but just don't see it. Hunger Games may be the sole good surprise of the year. TDKR does benefit from having NO competition after it hits all through summer. Still, $500 million is a buttload to cross in these economic conditions.
