Impressive.
About 40% of the audience was men opening weekend last time so I'm guessing the same thing. Kinda like around 40% of The Dark World's audience was women on opening weekend.

Talking about competitors has always been okay here.
I mentioned BMH because for a long time people here have said TDW had NO COMPETITION in week 2 .
But on Friday, more then a few people were sweating out the possibility that BMH could have a 35 million dollar weekend.
I was pointing out that ANY film can provide competition against a blockbuster,
It was not an Anti Thor comment.
I would be very interested in knowing if there was a drop among women for TDW this weekend.
IF there was , my guess is they went to BMH.
Sorry if you thought I was being snarky toward you, it was not my intension to do that.
I did not mean to quote you when I posted, I was not paying attention and accidently added the quote selection..
Once again sorry for the mix up.

I should have known, it never sounded right that the movie got to 38.5mil off of that Friday number. Well if it dropped 57% going up against a movie that did 30mil I'm going to be predicting a 60% drop this coming weekend.

Anyway 57% is still a decent drop so it's not some awful calamity or anything.

My idea of a really bad drop would be in the 70s, Aka, Hulk Numbers.
TDW's drop is nowhere near that bad.

Catching Fire is going to make bank this weekend haha. It's by far the best of the books and just throw in everything else it has going for it too. I'm pretty excited for it haha. I love that the tv spots I've seen haven't given anything good away.

I know its kind of a weird idea but in a way hunger games might help thor this weekend. The people who cant get tickets to HG might go see thor instead. Is their any history of this type of boost?

How often does this happen to people? This never happens to me. Even when I don't pre-book.

It happened with Avatar and first Sherlock Holmes to be precise. When people went to Avatar all tickets was sold out so they bought ones for next session and went to SH to spend time.

I find it remarkable that the original Thor outgrossed this one the last two days. I find that amazing really.

It is dropping off the face of the planet domestically. Damn, those numbers are horrible.
