I hope that the Hobbit will be right up there with Avengers for opening weekend.

TDKR will still remain no 2 for 2012, because the Hobbit will have earned a great portion of it's gross in 2013, but I think it will be 2nd on the list for biggest opening weekend for 2012.
It won't get anywhere near the Avengers opening weekend. It's missing the hot-guy appeal that will entice girls to see it. The Hobbit is a geek movie that will have limited cross over appeal. There's no Orlando Bloom or Viggo Mortensen to help it's crossover appeal like they did for LOTR. It'll do really good, I just don't see it matching LOTR.

I haven't seen either, but John Carter looked like a turd from the trailers.

Actually they're really straining to do their best on that front, making Kili beardless and giving him a romantic subplot.


Plus, while in a minor role, Bloom is back.

There has been a big ass lull between Twilight and The Hobbit. The box office has just been quiet these past few weeks because nothing big has been happening. I actually hit Breaking Dawn over the weekend because it was the only thing I hadn't seen.

Also I am really impressed that Lincoln is nearing 100 million domestic.

I am pleasantly surprised that it did better than its Vampire Hunter counterpart.

Since most characters are small, you really can't notice that. As a bi guy, I can definitely say it has the "hot guy appeal" with Fili and especially Kili.

The Hobbit is seriously under-performing. As in not only is $100M 3-day not happening, $80M is in serious question.

My showing wasn't even half-full and I've heard similar reports from friends.

It's just not as big as it was back when LOTR came out, because it was the first time we were seeing this world on screen.

Also the reviews have been mixed to negative and the marketing sucked.

Um, how do you reckon? We only have the numbers for Thursday at midnight and the numbers were HIGHER than Return of the King (the highest grossing LOTR film). Basically is there anything to back up your claims because so far the numbers ARE pointing to it being the highest grossing LOTR weekend following predictions. Here the 7 and 10 IMAX showings and 7 and 9 REGULAR showings completely sold out, it's rare that a movie sells out here. I went mid-day and it was 3/5 full - at 3 - when most people are still at work.

What Return of the King did back in 03 was quite impressive considering The Hobbit which has 3D/IMAX, 10 years of inflation, midnight showings being more popular. But the latest Friday estimate is looking surprisingly low.

Is there even a Friday estimate? Went to google and nothing came up. Just Thursday numbers dominating the december record.
