I'm pretty sure the analysts who get paid to track gain/loss risk and marketing demands are much more versed in what should be done than fans who will be there opening weekend no matter what.

Who's gonna pay for all these little tidbits? You, me or the studio?

Most fans aren't thinking about what's best for the movie (if they were they'd be talking it up with everyone they know) they just WANT MOARR NOW!!

How Rotten Tomatoes works / How studios make money / What is front-loading?

Pre-release predictions: BvS OW pred: $165m / Second weekend drop: 70% / WW total: $850m

Pre-release predictions: SS OW pred: $130m / Second weekend drop: 65% / WW total: $550m
