Re: Early box-office predictions
I think internationally at least, this will do a lot better than MoS. From the trailer this is going to be the "Empire Strikes Back" of this series. This definitely has Alan Taylor's touch on it, and it's far more gritty and dark than Branagh's film.
I think it can do IM1 type numbers, providing Catching Fire doesn't take too much steam away. Holiday films always seem to have pretty good legs.
