The Hobbit is not LOTR, has less hype than it should have at this stage and by its nature is likely to have a more balanced than frontloaded gross. Twilight will always have massive midnights & opening days but won't have enough on the Sundays to finish anywhere close.

Avengers already utilised the 3D boost about as much as it could so other films can match it but only a film that actually does something special technologically with the 3D like Avatar is likely to improve on that front. The OW record will of course go sooner or later but I don't think it will fall to any of the films or next sequels we currently know about.
I agree. The biggest competition against The Avengers are Spider-Man and Batman, with the former's reboot not quite capturing the same lightning in a bottle as the original, and the latter's reboot will probably not going to succeed as well as Nolan's creations. I think if Marvel handles their intermittent movies well, TA should have no problem staying at the top.
