Everyone went to see Avatar because we thought 3D was going to somehow make cinema better and we thought Cameron couldn't fail to make a compelling action scifi movie. Two huge assumptions right there. Fool me once.

They do, though IMO that's increasingly ridiculous (it made some sense when it was just midnight shows, but with shows starting as early as 7 it really doesn't).Well those count for Friday's totals right? Friday will be the first day a movie made over 100M in a single day, right?

#StarWarsTheForceAwakens crushes industry record for opening pre-shows w/ official $57M beating final Potter by 31%.
In the case of EpVIII, it helps that it'll be the 40th anniversary of ANH's release. You can bet Disney wants to milk that synergy to infinityI'm not sure why they want to move it to summer again. It's going to do ridiculous numbers now, and I doubt it'll have much competition
I expect around the same or a little bit less.So will SW go over or under Furious 7's overseas haul?
so are people now predicting this beats Avatar or what?
i always thought this was impossible.
