Advanced sales can be deceiving. Last year they lowballed Avengers numbers because they were basing it solely on advanced sales, but Avengers had a record number of walk-up business, so much so, it took down AMC's credit card system.

I think you have to start from the fact that this is going to get at least as much business as IM2 did (and likely more), then you add in the 3D boost, which puts you well over 150M.
