Everyone is guilty of the blitz. Lest we forget GreenLantern, and or the sheer amount of TV spots all these films have on average.

Inception brings up a great point. Word of mouth is a powerful force, and people who keep guessing humble figures for Box Office maybe should look over to inception. I don't even think that film opened big.
But it sure ended that way.
