Personally I don't know what is going to come along and ever top Titanic.  Think about it.  The LOTR movies, SpiderMan flicks, Shrek2, and ROTS all had insance opening weekends and finished well but still fall at least $150-170 million short of $600 million. 

Even if people loved TPM and AOTC I bet it still would not top $450 million. 

30 years from now when the average ticket costs $20.00 almost any blockbuster movie will beat Titanic.

I understand that completely.  Yes, someday there will be a film that will eclipse the $600 million barrier.  No doubts there.  I am just saying right now if ticket prices were to stay the same and everything else being equal I don't see how it would be topped considering all the hype and opening weekend numbers films such as Spiderman 2, Shrek 2, LOTR, and Star Wars enjoy.  I guess it can happen but not very likely.

Although Shrek is good, JP is MUCH better. I also don't get how Shrek beat JP. I also don't understand how LOTR beat it.

Ah well.

It looks like its about on the same pace as Clones was back in 2002...or close to it.

Projecting out the same length of time means it will make another $31 million which would just beat ROTK and move in to the #7 spot

ROTS is definately going to have a tough time from here on out. It will definately overtake Jurassic Park and could concievably pull out ahead of ROTK, but it will take weeks to do it. As for 400m, it's a craps shoot.

It's still doing pretty well though.  How many weeks has it been out now and it made another $9 million this weekend?  I think it will make it to $400 million...barely.

YOU TAKE THAT BACK!

Of course, in the long run, JP didn't have millions of fans from 30 years before it.

And of course...if Spielberg would have stuck with the book and not made some crap happy go lucky ending, more people, like me who had read said book in 1991, might have gone a few more times to see it

I agree he should have goen closer with book, but Chriton himself helped create the script, and re-worked it. I read JP back in 91 myself, 15 times. I was 5 sodding years old. I didn't know most of the jargon about Chaos theorey, and what not, but that book entertained the **** out of me. I've read it about 20 times since.

But we'll save this discussion for the book club thread.

JP RULES!
