Possible 21 million midnight is frakking HUGE, people. HUGE. Even if it's slightly lower, this thing is on it's way to at least 130 million weekend.

Walmart thing is being exaggerated. Even without Wal Mart, MOS would have done at least 15 million if not 17 to 18 million in midnights, which is a very large number for this film.

I also saw some other folks that went to the walmart screenings and the midnite showing.
fwiw, my midnite showing was even more packed than the walmart one.

I think alot of people like the earlier showings opening night because of what happened in Colorado. I am not sure the 9m from midnight included IMAX. Once again MoS opens to 21m from early and midnight showings---pretty damn impressive
Good Points...

I think Wal-Mart probably helped by a few million overall... prob lots of people went to watch it twice on the same day....

Also, it's also reasonable to assume that lots of those Wal-Mart audiences would not be watching on Friday, so, the actual number may be mis-leading...
