Hmmm... That comment is flawed.
The Hulk B.O.
Domestic: $132,177,234 53.9%
+ Foreign: $113,107,931 46.1%
= Worldwide: $245,285,165
Now let's see SR in comparison:
Domestic: $200,081,192 51.2%
+ Foreign: $191,000,000 48.8%
= Worldwide: $391,081,192
Also SR has an oscar nomination. Critically it was much better received than the Hulk.
