Perhaps due to the buzz and word of mouth spread by nerdy people and kids who were hyped up on the team up mega movie thing.
I think that the only people influenced by the nerdy people's opinions would be other nerdy people. Not soccer mums and casuals.

I think that the success of really big films, and why one film would appeal to the audience so much more than the other, can be difficult to explain sometimes.

Like, I have a bunch of female friends who normally woudn't go near anything remotely fantastical or sci-fi, who all went to see Avatar in droves. Why? I couldn't really get any reasonable explanation other than that they just wanted to see it.
