Summer Box Office Predictions 2013: 'Man of Steel,' 'Iron Man 3,' 'Despicable Me 2'
Who makes the top 10?
4. Pacific Rim
Release date: July 12
Comparisons: "Transformers" ($319 million), "Godzilla" ($136 million), "Iron Man" ($318 million)
Predictions: $250 million
Why: There has been a growing fan base for the Sci-Fi adventure ever since Guillermo del Toro screened footage at last year's Comic-Con. That's a start, but it isn't the reason why "Pacific Rim" will be a blockbuster. Kids love robots. Kids love robots fighting each other (see "Transformers"). Giant robots fighting giant monsters? Make sure it's PG-13 and you've likely got something special on your hands - in theory. How big it gets really depends on how good the movie is. Is it a game changer or not?
