$1.2Bn perhaps. Ford + Spielberg's last Indy= mega box office! The way Ford is being so reckless flying though in the last few weeks I would be more worried about if he even makes it to filming at this stage

See I don't see it making a billion due to the factors I outlined above.
Look at Batman v. Superman. On paper, that should've been a MEGA success. This was every geek and comic lover's dream. This was something people wanted to see for decades. And it was uneven, and it did well beneath expectations. And this is a film with a fanbase that is already in the millions to begin with.

I think the only reason KOTCS did so well is because of the fact that it was people's first exposure to Indy in 20 years. People took their kids (or in my case younger relatives) to see it. A steady stream of EU stuff kept the franchise going and hooked in younger fans.

Indy now is associated with a film that's considered on par with The Phantom Menace in many quarters, and who is remembered by modern audiences not so much for the classic films but for nuked fridges and Shia LeBeouf acting like a fool.

There's no novelty to seeing Harrison as Indy again like there was in 2008. He was only 65 there; reasonably young enough to be taken seriously doing physical stuff.

I just feel this movie will attempt to please everyone and end up pleasing few or no one.

The reason Batman v Superman was not a HUGE success is because the movie sucked. If its producers really thought such a dull flick would make tons of money, they're morons.

Batman V Superman also sucked. Like SUCKED. With a solid 27% approval rating on rotten tomatoes. To put that in comparison, many consider Kingdom of the Crystal Skull to be a "bad movie" and it had a 78% approval rating.

Also, BvS didn't have Harrison Ford which is what carried TFA over the 2 billion dollar mark. Star Wars will always make money, but without Harrison Ford they won't make near the numbers TFA made.

Indy 5 will hit a billion.

I don't know how they arrived at this number, but Variety says Ford will earn $10 to $12 million for Indy 5. Whatever the number is it's sure to increase with back end points like it did last time, when Ford, Spielberg and Lucas made about $65 million each.

I agree with the belief that Crystal Skull's box office triumph was all but ordained and had little to do with quality. The movie alleviated a 19 year Indy drought, and that's what made it successful. I always felt a fifth movie would fare worse at the box office (though certainly not enough to not be a success) due to the fourth movie's disappointment damaging the brand.

Though, that's an easier prediction to make in a scenario where Spielberg and co. had their act together and turned around a new installment more quickly. As things stand, the fifth movie will release more than ten years after Crystal Skull, which is long enough to rebuild the audience's appetite and introduce a new generation to the series. So it's possible Crystal Skull will hurt the movie and it's possible it won't.

But I also don't really care. This will be the last Indiana Jones outing with Harrison Ford no matter how much money it makes, and I sure have no profit participation. If they had made this earlier and there was still a chance of an Indy 6, maybe the box office take would be a more meaningful subject, but as far as I'm concerned, the end game is the movie itself. If it flops - and it won't - it's no skin off my nose.

$1bn is a lock I see it going way higher we all know its the last Ford Indy movie. Spielberg will really go all out this time (why he is taking so long on preproduction & story).

Families will come out in droves to see Ford one last time. Grand parents, with their children & grand children etc etc.

Indy 5 will be a family event movie so box office will be staggering most likely Jurassic World levels.
