Settle my bet! Batman vs Indy

Without giving you my arguments* beforehand, which movie will gross more in it's first weekend: The new Batman or the new Indiana Jones?


I've made a huge bet that the Indiana Jones movie will destroy (just beat is fine) the new Batman based on their Friday to Sunday first weekend receipts. Am I on crack or all you with me and Dr. Jones?



*just to clarify, thanks Modo.

I thought you said you weren't giving us your position here. Or am I misreading this?

How about Batman and Indy? Robin was a bit to effiminate for my tastes.

Not something I've been able to say about many movies lately, but I'm pretty interested in both. I think another Indiana Jones movie is totally pull-off-able, and the previous Batman movie was much better than the two crapfests that preceded it.

Of course, I know next to nothing about either one (and, to be honest, only recently found out they were coming out), so I guess either one could go either way.

Yeah, but Robin makes for a good character to kill off for dramatic effect, and to make way for other Robins (one of which was female, if I recall).

Indy will win box office for sure....that movie will draw out the older crowd who might not normally freuqent movies as much.

Batman has that draw, plus the young/hip/goth draw. Look at the numbers in my first post.

I don't think Batman will have that draw as they seem to keep doing "different" movies about him.

I'm still going with Indy.

Indy because of the already mentioned older crowd and the fact that they come out with Batman movies way too often. Nothing excites me about another Batman movie.

I used to feel that way until they went a whole new direction with Christian Bale as Batman. I loved the last movie...best Batman movie yet.

And to answer you question, the obvious choice would be Kyle Gass.

I'm thinking she could play the Penguin. Robin should be played by "The Rock".

Too similar to what's already been done. You got to think outside the box there.
