True, Deathly Hallows did have a 72% drop and Captain America while it had a $65 mil opening it needed to do better given its budget. The studios avoided TDKR's second weekend with blockbuster type films. I think given the weak performance First Class did box office wise, Fox would want to ensure it had the best window and now WB has taken that away.

ROTK actually opened on a Wednesday so it made $165 million in its first five days (adjusted for inflation).
