Can Sith Beat Titanic?
« on: May 20, 2005, 03:49 PM »
ROTS made $50 million in one day beating the old record set by Shrek 2 for one day totals...

Titanic is the King of the World right now at $1.845 Billion

Its a long way to go but with positive reviews and word of mouth, I think it has a chance...

I think $200 Million this first weekend is more than doable

I'm telling everyone I know that the movie is a must-see, if only to kick Titanic's ass. I've seen several people leave the movie and get back in line to see it again. That's awesome.

I really doubt it can beat Titanic... every teenie bopper girl had to go see it at least twice... but even if it doesn't, Star Wars is still king.

Every Fanboy around will see sith at least twice I'd say too...I think, like Titanic, the general public will decide what happens but the word of mouth positivity is enough to make me think it could happen

I HOPE it beats Titanic, but I somehow doubt it will. Remember when everyone said Episode 1 would beat Titanic and it didn't? Episode 1 had at least 5 years of hype PLUS the rerelease of the OT to hype it even more. And it still couldn't beat Titanic.

But that was Episode 1, and more people want to see 3 than they did 1 I assume. We'll wait and see...

I can not see it beating Titanic.  It will depend on where it stands after Memorial Day weekend IMO.  It's going to be an impressive box office total before it's all done though.

I knew a girl who saw Titanic about a dozen times, and god knows she wasn't the only little bopper to do this. With tickets being around $8, that's an easy $100 worth of tickets, not counting popcorn and drinks, or Carebear Gummies...

What I'm trying to say is that I don't think enough Star Wars fans have rich daddy's to be able to beat Titanic...

I hope it does.  We need to show those teenie-boppers something.

Does that $1.8 billion include worldwide profits in it?

If we're talking worldwide, it might have a chance of coming close. But to sell nearly $2 billion worth of tickets is going to be hard to do.

One word: no.

Titanic had a much broader interest than ROTS has worldwide. It was a one of, special movie about a very tragic moment in real history, people wanted to see that.

$303,200,000  Worldwide, looks like he broke even in a day or two :P

This is also why I think Episode VII through IX might eventually happen.  There is far, far too much money there to just walk away from
