Excellent for The Hunger Games!!

I'd saya $390 Million finish is looking possible.

Our bet is still available,right?

Yup, I was afraid when the first estimates showed it to be $15 Million...but with it being at $14.5 I'm still relatively confident. 

Good..good..I shall have pleasure in seeing you eat crow.

I shall have pleasure in seeing the crow you cook for me being eaten by you at the last minute wahaha

BTW in the bet I want to clarify I mean the first run....in 20 years when it's re-released in 4D it'll go over $400 Million



All hail the KING, Andrespetmonkey

Lol at new estimates for final gross around 380 million. Inching closer and closer to that magic 400 million spot!

Didn't you originally say around 375 million? I still say closer to 400 million than 375 million.

 

The Hunger Games is the 8th fastest movie to get to $350 million according to box office mojo. Since 7 of the 10 fastest movies to $350 million made over $400 million dollars I would give The Hunger Games a 85% change to make over $400 million dollars at the box office still will be easily in the top ten for a couple more weeks.

THG just had it's LOWEST weekend drop yet,and is now tracking $6.45M ahead of DH2. The gap will only widen from now on.



                               

A week ahead of its U.S. debut, Marvel's The Avengers opened in 39 foreign territories and scored a truly heroic $178.4 million. The movie took first place in all of its markets, and set new opening weekend records in a dozen of them as well.

The Avengers had its top start in the United Kingdom ($24.7 million), though that only ranks 16th all-time there. In Australia, the movie's $19.7 million is the second-highest opening ever, while its $15.9 million debut in Mexico is a new record. It also set records in Brazil ($11.3 million), Taiwan ($7.7 million), the Philippines ($6.5 million), Hong Kong ($4.6 million) and seven other smaller markets.

Across the 12 markets where estimates are available, The Avengers opened over twice as high, on average, as Iron Man 2, which currently holds the team's overseas record with $311.5 million (a number The Avengers is going to annihilate within the next few weeks).
