I wonder what is George Lucas thinking right now seeing this insane numbers for Episode 7.  Quality aside, watching this episode 7 numbers; Episodes 2 and 3 were really a big box office disappointment.

 

He's probably thinking he got ripped off. That $4 billion he got for Star Wars (and Indy) doesn't seem that great anymore.

I really must be one of the few people who loved the origins of Vader and everything else about the prequels. 

No you are not.... I really realllyyy loved the prequels and especially episode III which was on par with episode V (IMO)

This is assuming it follows Avatars drops.  I think it will start coming down a bit.

Not Avatar's drops.....Avatar's 3rd Sunday dropped 28.7% from its 2nd Sunday.......... I'm predicting 50% drop, which is more in line with the LOTR pics, and in fact quite normal.

Not surprised by Daddy's Home, they did excellent marketing on that film. Also I was in the basketball scene haha.

I like the idea. I just feel the films are really really poorly executed

What makes this weekend so incredible is the demand still being very high despite the fact it opened massively and had great holds during the week.

Watch it be 59.6M and Disney report 499.9M. 

 

Yeah, the Christmas Eve hold made it very difficult to jump 100% on Christmas Day.

I'm no Xia, or even close to the best box office prognosticattor here, never have been and never will be.  However, I seem to have a beat on SW, since the presales came in. 

 

I think SW has to start "slowing" a bit.  By that I mean that there is no way it can keep Avatar's pace going.  Avatar was a nice sized hit early on and then obviously wom kept it going so that it hit that 10X.  SW is a different beast.  It opened with the force of a tsunami combined with a typhoon and it just kept going to 7 days.  Finally, on Christmas day it didn't follow Avatar's increase as it came in 27% less but this is a film that is moving at record speeds.  It has to slow down because it didn't open like avatar. 

 

Based on all of this, I think today will see a smaller increase that Avatar's 22%, but not by much simply because there will be more showtimes.  I also think it will slow a bit in the week to come.

 

Now having said that, slow down just means instead of falling 9% on New Year's weekend, it will fall about 25%. 

 

A billion is all but locked based on this weekend, and really, I have no idea where it will land.  Fans love it, those who have never seen a SW film before love it and critics love it.  It's a perfect trifecta.  So instead of putting down some arbitrary number as to where it will land, I will just say that it will do north of a billion and land somewhere between that and SW adjusted. 

 

It's a fun ride, and it will be for the next few months.

If it held like Avatar it would end up w/ $2.5b domestic. People didn't honestly think that was going to continue beyond the first week right (or anywhere close for that matter)? Silly if so.

People were dreaming it would do it until the end of the holidays. I am sure everyone realizes this thing will disappear fast in January.

I wonder how many would have believed if a year ago someone came on here and predicted that Episode 7 would beat The Avengers Age of Ultron's total US gross in 9 days?

Demand was always going to remain high so I disagree somewhat. It's the holidays, movies hold a lot better no matter what they are.

"Disappear fast"? That's a bannable offense. 

 

Seeiously, it's gonna be coming off a 100m third weekend. Just how fast do you think it's gonna disappear?

It won't disappear that fast.  There is no other significant family coming out until Jan. 29th.  It has a free run until then.

Point Break did better than expected, not that it is an impressive number...

I am pretty sure I said in June this would do 1.1B DOM and 300M OW. Does that count?

It seriously won't surprise me if it drops to a 40M weekend on January 8 (if it does 100M 2nd weekend, if it does more I will adjust my prediction). It will have a super hold on MLK weekend and die after that.

I've seen you post on hsx before, I believe. Do you have insider info?

 

I was making a guess on this one, but no real insider info for the most part.  The late nights weren't quite as strong.  Still a great number.
