But he also said pre-sales are throwing everything off.

Yes, but if you read that the number is an extrapolation, then it could go higher...or lower as well.  

 

Either way, 130 OD is monstrous.  140-145 is just nuts.

So essentially pre-sales throws everything off?

Over here walk ups are essentially 0. Everyone is buying their tickets online and basically no tickets are sold at the time of the show.

Walk-ups were somewhat weak for us last night, that's why I was initially thinking we would go over $60M for the night but it ended with around $50M.

Most people are buying tickets just before they come to the theater because they don't want to be any further behind the line especially with reports of 2 hour lines, no one wants to be one or 10 people further behind

 

 

most people buy tickets online especially when faced with lines. They don't want to be in 2 lines

Yup, I was initially expecting way bigger numbers here and they are simply not happening. I am ashamed of my country. Fast 7 sold 240000 tickets on his first 4 days. Minions sold 200000 tickets. Twilight 5 sold 225000 tickets. Fifty Shades of Grey sold 160000 tickets. Star Wars should do a big 140000-150000 (slightly above Spectre) but c'mon! Expectations were far far higher. Most theaters put it in 3 or 4 screens. First time ever. Maximum all movies get here is 2 screens.

Well, i think we can safely say now that SW7 is gonna beat Avatar DOM. And by quite a margin, too. Congrats. Question is whether it can beat it WW... Still have my doubts...

Want to hear an insane story that happened to me last night? 

 

I came out of my second viewing in IMAX in Cardiff and David Prowse was at the theatre signing autographs. I'd met him a few years ago but my brother in law hadn't, so he paid £20 and got the autograph. I got in the photo with him and then asked him...

"what did you think of the movie?"

he said "I haven't seen it yet! I thought the theatre would show it to me but they haven't!"

 

So yeah. Surreal. I got to ask Darth Vader on opening day of this juggernaut what he thought of it. Crazy!

Expect major disappointment that this is making "only" $125M today.

That's still an insane figure. We're officially over 100m OD regardless.

I'm sure there's some "The BEST Scenes of the Original Trilogy" montage on YouTube that's two hours shorter than this and does the trick. 

 

It's right here
