Default Re: Rise of the Guardians

FOUR CHRISTMASES 11/26
RISE OF THE GUARDIANS 11/21
ELF 11/17
SANTA CLAUS 11/11
POLAR EXPRESS 11/10

CHRISTMAS CAROL 11/6
SANTA CLAUS 2 11/1

It's only a ten day difference among the top earners. Tangled wasn't christmas - it didn't include Santa, snow, or christmas carols.

Low 30 mill.... EVERY christmas film except for the Grinch pulled in a low 30 mil. There's only ONE that went over 31 mill and that was the Grinch... if it made 40 mil or more it would be on target to become the second highest grosser of all time with Christmas films. Hell, if it made 32 mil it would seemingly go that way too, but also bringing Hobbit into account for slowing down some of its legs among part of the audience.

If there wasn't a pattern, alrighty - but one can see why the studio only forecasted it to be around the 30 mil range and that's because past history shows these films open soft then maintain through the holiday. Arthur Christmas made only 13 mil in one week by comparison (that film was the first christmas film to really flop) while Rise has likely passed that in three days.
