Far less than half of the tix were for 3d. there were more 2d theaters showings plus the avengers lost its 3d showings faster than its 2d showings. Like I have said before the 3d plus inflation (which isnt a good calculation for TDK since the last major ticket increase happened before it was out) both probably added up to about the 17% that TA was above TDK. I dont think there are significant differences between tickets sold. I think the same audiance was the base for both... even if niether side of the fanboys will admit that...

Isnt it past your bedtime?
