Since when was 330-340 million not considered that big?

That's huge! Awesome numbers for any of us who took it on our slates.

I'm talking compared to the "All Time Money Earners." I'm not talking about the game. Just look at the title of this thread. That's what I'm talking about. It is huge, but its not going to smash records (other than the midnight record) and it will not even be the biggest film of the year.

And I have it on a lot of slates too.

How many movies have made over 340 million? Not trying to argue, I'm just curious.

The Dark Knight is #27. Gone with the Wind is almost at $1.5 B.

In the grand scheme of things 94 movies is still not a lot when you think about how many movies have been made this decade, let alone since they started keeping track of box office numbers.

I think we just get jaded to how huge it is for a movie to make 300 million dollars.

I'd be surprised if Bruno didn't drop more than that. It'd be crazy if The Hangover snuck back into the Top5 because of it.

And yeah, those midnights made people jump the gun abit on HP6, but it looks like it'll hit the 5-day people were estimating.

And I would love Ice Age to get another 4 Top5 points.

This was kind of my point...saying HP would not be that big isn't fair really...b/c having only 94 movies that have ever been released in the history of cinema ahead of you is pretty fucking awesome...it IS that big...but then again so were all the other ones. Fuck you JK Rowling! Fuck you all the way to the bank you rich bitch! LOL...just kidding...sort of. Ok I'm done.

And possibly as a result of Bruno's disappointing box office take, Sacha Baron Cohen has announced that he will be retiring the Bruno character. However, I do expect a comeback of his Ali G character.

Weekend Estimates:

1. Harry Potter - $79M ($159M 5-day)
2. Ice Age - $17.7M (-35%)
3. Transformers 2 - $13.7M (-43%)
4. Bruno - $8M (-72%)
5. The Hangover - $8M (-16%)

PTA:

5 points - (500) Days of Summer - $31K
4 points - Harry Potter - $18k
3 points - The Hurt Locker - $8k
2 points - Ice Age - $4k
1 point - Transformers - $3k

I think it's hilarious that The Hangover in its 7th week might beat Bruno in its 2nd. Sucks for me since I had Bruno on almost all my slates. And 500 Days of Summer kicked ass in the PTA, lets hope it doesn't expand too quickly.

Gotta love The Hurt Locker. That makes 16 PTA and counting despite all the box office smashes it's gone up against. Next week's expansion should fry it but I can't complain.

It's just so funny that the two films that will end up being the biggest money earners of the year (T2 and HP6), neither one could take the PTA crown.

I'm going to be in St. Louis on Friday and I should be seeing The Hurt Locker there (yes, it took that long to hit that market).

Great for 500 Days of Summer. I'm guessing if they market it and expand it right that it could pull in well over $50 million. Hangover, Proposal, and Bruno being almost tied this weekend is funny.

Avatar will make over $300 million. Mark my words. You can quote me when I'm completely wrong and it bombs, but it has the prefect release date (2007 had 3 movies over $200 million that came out at Christmastime, all of them above expectations, plus remember NatM, and last year Marley and Button did way better than expected. Plus this has the hype and will have the WOM, reviews, repeat viewings, Oscar buzz, etc.)

What hype? Not one person(Including the Mrs. who is usually up on all things movie related) I know has ever even heard of this movie let alone any idea who directed it, what it's about or when it comes out

Well I'm hearing about it a lot. Its only competition at Christmas is Sherlock Holmes, meaning it has the least amount of competition for a December release this decade, plus word of mouth and repeat viewings really help at Christmas, higher priced 3D and IMAX 3D, plus the marketing campaign hasn't really started which is why a lot of people don't know much about it.

Seriously? you have no idea that the man who made a little movie called TITANIC as well as Terminator, Aliens, and a few others has had this movie as his pet project for the last 14years but couldn't do anything about it till now because the technology didn't exist. Hell this movie has been so top secret that every little word someone speaks about it gets put right at the top of the feed on comingsoon. It comes out december 18th and this movie is a HUGE part of the push for 3D equiped theaters. Mr Cameron said that he didn't want to release it in anything less than 2000 3D theaters so of course everybody goes out and upgrades for him. Not for coraline or jonus bros or MvA. For this movie alone. The rest of the movies coming out in 3D are just to kind of wet our appetite for this juggernaut. And if you really want to know what its about you can look up the description on various sites or for the best one you can look at is James Cameron himself talking about it at the ubisoft press confrense that happened at E3

Yes and starting at Comic-Con, buzz is going to be everywhere, not just on movie sites. And the fact that JC won't approve of any trailers Fox is showing him means that it will have the best trailer in the history of mankind.
