    Just sitting here looking at the box office results for this weekend as well as all year. So far its going on 5 weeks that we're still in the top 5 of the domestic box office (which I think is a good sign). Also after noticing Harry Potter slipping to number 2 (thanks to Captain America), Dark of the Moon is the still the only movie this year domestically to be number 1 for 3 straight weeks. Only a couple other movies barely went 2 weeks at the top spot before falling.

    Not to derail but do we hit the billion by this time next week? We have surpassed ROTF and we haven't opened in Japan yet. Wil Japanese fans flock to it this weekend and push us over the hump?

    Most likely. If not this time next week then without a doubt a couple of days after.

    If we can withstand the smurfs and cowboys and aliens this week and remain at least 5th in box office then we'll still remain for the next 2 weeks because after the 29th there is no other big premiere for another week or so.

    I don't know about Smurfs. I think that thing is going to flop harder than a fish that jumped in a boat.

    IIRC --DOTM doesn't open in China until 21st and Japan the 28th or 29th.

    It just opened this past weekend in China, broke their OW record too, surpassing their previous record held by Avatar!

    You underestimate kids and their stupid parents greatly. Would not be surprised to see Smurfs at #1.
