What don't you get?

Adjusted box office is talked about all the time, including in the earlier posts by Godfrey.

Essentially, if you predict lower than 85-90 million, from a strictly ticket aspect, you're saying it's going to open lower than Superman Returns did ... same with under 250-260 million domestic gross.

Again, it's never a science, because times are different, but just in general, that's what the tickets sold would make you believe. Now don't compare films from YEARS ago, but if it's somewhat recent, it's going to be reasonable.

I just don't think it's possible for it to sell less tickets, with the seemingly 'fresher' take with great buzz, plus, I know it's overstated, but Nolan's name attached does give the film a certain credibility with people given his history in the genre.

Maybe, Superman's place in society will once again disappoint me, but I'm confident this time.
