A website that does not shy away from untraditional betting markets, Bovada has released betting odds on the highest-grossing movies in the world in 2023 per its main website and other sources. With popular series such as the Spider-Verse, Fast and the Furious, and Guardians of the Galaxy all on tap for new installments next year, Bovada has them as the early favorites to make waves. According to the online sportsbook’s main page, Guardians Vol. 3 is the favorite at +125, while Fast X (+275), and Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (+350) round out the top three. In addition to these stalwart franchise films, there are a couple of other notable inclusions in the list like The Super Mario Bros. Movie (+3000) and also the new Barbie film (+3000).
Indeed with so many fantastic superheroes and big-budget films on tap for next year, it will be a big contest to see who can land the number one spot. For this report, SBS will be going over the latest gaming news coming out of Bovada along with more thoughts and notes about using the website.
According to one article, past top-rated movies have largely been sequels or part of a larger film series, which means entertainment betting markets are on point when it comes to 2023 hits. Moreover, the prior top-grossing films have dominated box office charts because of the prior success of those franchises and the support for them both internationally and domestically. For instance, in the past five years, four of the five highest-grossing films each year were all sequels. This list includes 2022 Top Gun: Maverick ($1.48 billion), Spider-Man: No Way Home in 2021 ($1.9B), Avengers: Endgame in 2019 (nearly $2.8B), and finally, Avengers: Infinity War ($2.0B) in 2018. Indeed it is also clear that superhero films have a vice-like grip on the film industry.
Moreover, as one report notes, the results of the 2020 film year can be disregarded because of the minimal impact the U.S. had on ticket sales due to Covid-19. The rankings also show the power of the Marvel franchise as well with the top films in 2021, 2019, and 2018 all hailing from the Disney empire. Also as evidenced in one article, a Marvel movie, and a sequel, like Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is the best bet at this time (+125) to take home the top box office crown in 2023. Guardians Vol. 3 will begin its climb to the top of the charts on May 3, 2023.
Already one of the highest revenue-producing franchises in the Marvel universe, Guardians Vol. 3 features a spectacular cast headlined by the likes of Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldaña, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, and Sylvester Stallone. As referenced above, the third installment in the franchise will be released in May of 2023 and is part of Phase Five of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Per reports, in the film, the Guardians embark on a mission to defend the universe and also protect one of their own. The slated new antagonist will be the superpowered Adam Warlock, formerly known as “Him,” along with some other surprise foes.
