    Who doesn't love an Asgardian cougar. Great movie. Looking forward to Captain America.

    I'm hoping that Thor gets the Bargain Tuesday bump that is so often seen. FF5 didn't get it, it dropped on it's first Tuesday. Hoping that THOR gets that bump and sees $6 today perhaps.

    That's nice. So it's in the $260's now. Basically tied up with TIH's entire gross.

    As long as it made 3.2M domestically on Tuesday it will have passed TIH's entire WW gross.

    Yes, much better than the 3.2 million it needed to pass TIH's WW gross.

    Well I knew it'd make more than 3.2 but I thought it'd be ~5M. If it holds up on Wednesday we're looking at a leggy run.

    ha! I hear ya, but actually alot of people wait for the weekdays either because they work on the weekend or they want to avoid the weekend crowd. Also Tuesdays are typical for getting the bargain prices, but normally these are not seen in the first week of a release.

    Granted that TIH also didn't have:

    1)3-D aiding it's gross
    2)IMAX aiding it's gross
    3)The starting pole position of summer aiding it's gross
    4)the lack of bad taste from a previous bomb inhibiting it's gross
    5)inflation working in it's favor.

    But even with all that taken into account I still expect Thor to prevail at the box office since it's the better film(but all those factors would narrow Thor's margin of victory).

    mondays, tuesdays and wednesdays are usually 2-3€ cheaper around here. A LOT of people are going to the cinemas on weekday evenings in Austria in times when they charge 11€ for a ticket

    That's just a testament to how much Marvel got it's **** together now in terms of marketing.

    well, they probably would've done better without 3D. higher ticket prices leads to less viewers.

    That's why I wouldn't really use the "3D helped it out" excuse too much because it also got in the way of quite a bit of ticket sales as well.
