SW won't have the long and strong legs of Titanic and Avatar.

Overseas numbers are preaty low even if we wait for China and Japan. I just hope it can top Jurassic World - that movie sucks and itś success offends me.

 



It was decent story wise I guess. Kids liked it. But it lacked the intensity of the original, which still has thatiintensity today. Took my kids to see the rerelease. They hid under the seats! JW they were able to watch all the way through. Lol

 

It's not much a matter of quality, but the movie been a cultural phenomenon. Some time, like JW, they hit an untaped source of nostalgia with the public.

But Avatar and Titanic are another level of public penetration.

And just what level to you think The Force Awakens is at?  You don't crush records (even without China) and not be on some other level.

It's set records in numerous countries for it's weekend as well as most money in a single day. As for legs we'll have to wait and see though star wars movies are known for getting repeat viewings



Box Office Mojo also tweeted out that the 33.8% drop from Sunday to Monday is the EXACT same as Avatar's first Monday as well. Good sign for Star Wars.

Has your mother, aunt and grandmother watched the movie yet? Are they going to?

This is the public that gave Avatar and Titanic their legs. Not our generation and not regular movie-goers. You can think about that, when considering why Kylo Ren removes his mask and show a preaty - and exotic - young face.

There was also a heavy push to watch the movie early and avoid spoilers. The biggest I can remember. I'm not sure it can sustain those numbers for long and all over ther world.

Spoilers dude

No, yes as well as my cousins, their kids. Most my family hasn't seen it yet but will be over the holidays. I've not seen it yet but have tickets to see it twice. Once with some extended family where there will be 10 of us. With some family who can't make it that will see it later. Then later with 4.

 

With the timing of when it came out, it will like titanic and avatar have a pretty strong hold over the winter box office. While it will more front loaded than those two it won't be a front loaded as Harry potter movies.

I read that in Australia Tuesday was up from record monday. That bodes well for US. (the drops after Saturday has been nearly identical as US)

Star Wars saga was seen by two generations, my father's generation with the OT, my generation with the prequels, and now a new generation with the new ones. I think it has potential to beat Avatar just because of that. 



The numbers already have Tuesdays domestic number TFA earned $37.3 million which is the highest total for Tuesday it beat The Amazing Spiderman by a little more then $2 million. Don't think it will beat the highest numbers for Wednesday and Thursday those high numbers are held by movies that premiered on Wednesday but it now has the highest single day domestic box office totals for four out of seven days of the week.



Here you go Chris! Saw it earlier but was only on my phone. Looks like that will be the end of the daily records, but they will still be making the 350, 400, 450 and 500 million record most likely!

 

Tuesday Record Falls to The Force Awakens with $37.3 million

December 23rd, 2015

Star Wars: The Force Awakens set two more records on Tuesday with $37.3 million for the day, making it the highest grossing Tuesday of all time, just topping The Amazing Spider-Man. It won’t break the records for Wednesday or Thursday as there are too many films that have opened on those days to compete with. However, The Force Awakens did set the record for fastest to $300 million, beating Jurassic World there by three full days. The film will reached $350 million tonight and $400 million on Friday, setting records for both of those milestones too. More...
