One thing is for certain. TFA proves that December releases can have monster openings. No more do we have to look at Avatar, Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, and I am Legend and think that $70m-$80m OWs are the ceiling. 

 

Anyone looking at ROTK and thinking $80m is ceiling in 2015 was, well, wrong.

Nope. 120M is great :) I don't wanna wake up tomorrow and see a 20-30M number lower than the one I saw before going to bed. 120M OD is phenomenal :)

But you can't really compare anything to Star Wars 7.  It's definitely the exception, not the rule.

 

True. But I think these results will embolden studios to not shy away from opening big franchise/tentpole movies in December.

For real it is. I just can't even believe that it's this huge.

So you guys have to remember that I live in a smaller town (I think around 40 000 people give or take) so we don't have a lot of movie's selling out and lines rarely stretch longer than our parking lot.

 

That being said, yesterday, we had people lining up for the 7:00 Star Wars yesterday at noon, then get mad at my manager when he showed up at box office that he didn't open the doors so they could use the washroom. I got there at 5:30, 90 minutes before it started, and there were already like 130 people all dressed up, who were all yelling and cheering at me when I showed up. I felt so cool cause I was "official" I got them all together for a group photo, then I had to use my "big boy voice" to tell them they cant rush in all at once when doors open and they can't ignite lightsabers during the movie.

So how will Rogue One do a year from now. Could it get at least a $150-175 million weekend ?

Reminds me of when we had someone here petulantly predicting 200m for The Avengers, total.

 

Wasn't that cocho

Even White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest was flanked by Star Wars characters on Friday

 

 

That explains everything.  Obama is New Order.
