So like I said: if this doesn't break records, I will be flabbergasted.
And the thing is the rate this is going no one will be able to use the 3D excuse. Sure 3D pumped the sales figures of this film, but the ticket sales are flying off the shelf as well. In fact this was only the 7th largest release, less than the dark knight, less than Harry Potter, so this movie could have possibly had even more astronomical numbers had it more theaters available.

There was an idea, to bring together a group of remarkable people, to see if we could become something more, so when they needed us, we could fight the battles, that they never could.
