The marketing campaign was tremendous and wide reaching and personally the best I had seen since Avatar.

It was insane.
The result of that? 660 million worldwide.
Take in the production budget of 225 million and it does seem ok but not great.
People should realize that their anticipation for a movie is not equal to GA's anticipation for the movie.
I think those saying it will make more than Avengers have lost the plot.
Many....many people thought MOS would make 1 billion WW....easily nonetheless...for a reboot??
Many...many....MANY people seem to have been smoking something bad.
