    Yeah, 2B could be really tough to achieve, but TA has exceed expectations ever since its release, so who knows? I do think that while people were making a big deal out of THG's early success in March, such as winning #1 for four straight weeks, TA shows THG what is really impressive by destroying records left and right.

    There is no pudding, though. She's not a BO analysis. She gets her numbers from Disney and other rival studios. The numbers she reports on Friday generally change by Sunday morning.

    It's hard to predict whats going to happen when it comes to such a huge flick like this. That's why her updates generally come on the our.

    Either way, $100-$105 second weekend is incredible!

    Hollywood must be pissed off. Because this proves them wrong about piracy. Make a good movie & movies people want to see. Then they will come. Hollywood must be crying right now

    I am also wondering about that, I expected it to gross close to Transformers.

    Cinematic films will always do well in the face of piracy as you can't recreate that experience at home unless you have a spare million or so for your home cinema system.

    But a movie like this doing what it is doing at the Box Office. Is a sight to behold. Especially at a time when Hollywood is trying to get control of the Internet

    Funny thing is, I know some people who do watch movies on the internet, and if they really like a movie, they will go see it again in the theater. So, in this case, the bootlegs worked in favor for the theaters/studios.

    I also want to make a note of something, I was realizing this last Wednesday. When I went to the marathon, it was held inside a mall. Malls generally close at about 9:00, or at least the stores do. But, with the all of the people that The Avengers brought, it also brought in customers, by the droves, to the nearby restaurants and coffee houses. So, I like to look at it, as The Avengers is also stimulating the economy for a bit. Not too shabby for a mere comic book movie.

    I knew it all along! I would gloat, but I don't think anyone would care.

    1B was ALWAYS a lock in my mind and I tried to convince naysayers like jmc, but they wouldn't listen. Oh well...

    Avengers 3 will kill it overseas. Overseas audiences awareness sometimes doesn't kick in until you get to sequels.
