    Dotm > Rotf day one income

    according to S4TE's Twitter, DOTM'S made $79.4 million in just over one day

    Not bad!

    That's better than ROTF did I think

    oops, almost forgot to put in a link That's to S4TE's news article on it

    The $79 mil is international. Domestic is $37m, well short of ROTF.

    Well, I was just pointing out that your thread title was misleading.

    Not bad for mid-week mind, I bet there was a ton of people who couldn't attend due to work or other commitments. I'll be interested to see the figures for over the weekend.

    Still, the movie is doing good business for being moved up a couple days to a Wednesday, a poor economy, and it not showing on as many screens in its initial opening as ROTF. I think we'll see the domestic totals really pick up once it hits the traditional 3-day release period (Friday-Sunday).

    In what way is it misleading? It's not like the rest of the world isn't important.

    The opening day domestically for ROTF was $62 million compared to the $37 million for DOTM. It's sad because DOTM is better, but that is what happens when the previous installment is much maligned. People just asume the worst and skip the next missing out on a kick ass time.

    It's misleading because ROTF had the bigger day one income. The thread title says that DOTM had it.

    Did ROTF come out on a Wednesday or a Friday?

    I think Friday will be big because...well it's Friday, and because the movie was advertised as 7-1-11 for the longest time and some commercials STILL have that as the date.
