Yes; factoring the 2006/2011 average ticket price (i.e., inflation), SR outsold Thor. But a complicating factor is this: we’re taking the world-wide grosses and dividing by the North American average ticket price. This may throw a wrench into an accurate calculation of number of seats sold. But at least, it’s a consistent/apples-to-apples comparison.
