    that would not be good in crowded summer movie season...The Great Gatsby on the 10th and Star Trek Into Darkness on the 15th...It would have a week at best to make up for not being in the 3 main theaters.

    yes it will make its money...but not like it would if it was in the big chains

    Yea if they don't work this out, Iron Man 3 box office sales will take a major hit. Like someone else said this summer (well May in particular) is extremely crowded with movies. We have this, Gatsby (though I am not interested in seeing it) Star Trek, Fast 6, Hangover Part 3 all within weeks of each other.

    I hope the theaters stand their ground and don't give into to Disney, like how DirecTV gave into Viacom.

    I get your point but I don't want that to happen! All the movie theaters near me are either Cinemark, Regal, or AMC so I would not be able to see the movie if this happened.....

    I can't read it, but good. That means my theater is good. I just hope there isn't a ticket price hike.

    God I hope that's true. This is really starting to scare me with the premiere date being so close.

    EDIT: Just saw that Disney and AMC reached an agreement. That solves my problem!

    These theater chains stand to lose tens of millions of dollars.

    Disney has deeper pockets and can take the hit.

    The theaters will fold.

    I see a deal was reached.

    Thank goodness. That could've ruined countless box office debates in the future. :)
