Longer films have limited numbers of showings in a day
docc -> Disappointment? (17/12/2012 4:23:11 PM)
How would anyone call this a disappointment? It has outperformed all previous December releases including all the LOTR films! It was released on a very sad weekend across the pond and during a Christmas run in where large numbers of people are borrowing money for presents and to put a Christmas dinner on the table. I'm sure all those involved are delighted with the outcome....

Typically the other movies in this franchise have all opened relatively modestly, so the bar is pretty level at this moment in time. Look at Avatar, the biggest movie of all time that opened to significantly lower figures, look what that went on to achieve. My prediction $295 million stateside $650 million elsewhere.
