Not much, Avatar's record will be there I think at least more than 5 years (until its sequel to break it :) )

For Thursday (opener) and Friday Record, some comparisons- Amazing Spiderman 0.561m admission- The Avengers 0.486m admission- Iron Man 2 0.539m admissionFor late June (end of semester weekend) 2-day record, some comparisons- ASM 0.561M- TF3 0.986M (wednesday opener) - TF2 0.855M (wed opener)- Knight & Day 0.232M- Wanted 0.415M- TF1 0.612M- Superman Returns 0.211M (wed opener)TF1 opened with a weekend record of 1.90m admission with 0.31m OD admission Avengers opened with 1.64m admission with 0.29m OD record (incl 0.08m midnight record)So expect kinda 1.60m admission for ASM's opening weekend. (4 day)USD gross will be similar to that of Avengers. (12.75m OW)Legs are hard to predict, while the level isn't higher as TA or TF1but competition is very week. Not much release for 3 weeks until TDKR to come(and vacation isn't started yet)For now, I expect about 5M admission (about 38M USD) finish.

A little better increase for ASM's saturday than anticipated, so may reach more than 1.7m admission and closer to 14m USD opening week gross
