Who's up for a Pool? Guess the final domestic gross and win a prize! ;)

I'm game. 

I have an idea for the prize.  Everyone that guesses has to donate a ROTS fig.  The winner gets them all.

You know, I was half joking making that sugestion, but if the Figure was an army builder, like #41 clone, that would rock!

I read JP back in 91 myself, 15 times. I was 5 sodding years old.


You read "Jurassic Park" by Michael Crichton at age 5?  15 times? 

Were all the Berenstain Bears storybooks checked out from the library or something?   :P

$352M right now.  It'll be nice to break into the Top 10 this weekend finally (sorry Kev), but I fear the best ROTS is gonna do at this point is unseat ROTK for 7th place alltime.  But after that, I'm afraid it's legs are gonna die out, and there's little to no chance of it breaking $400M, passing Spiderman, and especially passing TPM.  Like all movies nowadays, it got off to a huge start, but really hit the skids after a few weeks.  Heck, at this point, it's barely gonna break the Top 50 for adjusted grosses, which isn't saying a whole lot...  :-\

But hopefully ROTS' legs surprise me, and it really gets up there into the elite status of the $400M club.  $404 would be perfect, just squeeking us past that little webcrawling freak!  :P

My prediction: $383M

I'm gonna say... $391.  That's probably too high, but oh well.  The "I'm going to wait for DVD" mentality is cutting the legs out from under every movie now and aside from inflation, I seriously doubt any film from here on out will ever contend with Titanic.

I'm going to say that it's gonna be around $382-4 tops for US.

HOWEVER, international figures should shoot up like no ones bussiness come July when it opens it Japan.

I think the "I will wait for the DVD mentality" is killing the box office in general right now.  The studios won't mind that because they get a ton of money from those sales.

Another thing I feel that is keeping the box office down right now at least for me is the price of a movie ticket.  Here for a cheap ticket it would cost me about 7.50 and tops out at 9.50, which means I have to limit what I go see.  I had hope to see Sith 7 or so times but have only seen it 3 times but can't justify the expense of seeing it again at that cost while there are more important things for me to buy.

I think SIth will ended up at 390 million, wish it would do better though.

there are 3 theaters showing RotS here and they all have different prices, the lowest is $5.50 at night up to $8 at night, so I'm also limited by prices. I've seen 3 times in theaters and only if I get to 1 more time will be before it closes but that's a big fereaking maybe. I'm glad it's done so much, $350 million + is awesome but with other BIG movies out doing very good business - batman, madasgasgar. mr/mrs smith and coming soon WotW, it'sll be hard for sith to make much more. I love movies so I like seeing them.

OK, but keep in mind that this is like The Price Is Right.  If you go over, you lose.  :P

That said, we're going to say that Andrew's guess is $382m (not 382-384).  That way, I have much more room to call my own...  ;)
