    Here's the thread to predict how much Episode 2 will make opening day, and opening Weekend. It's a little hard to say based on sentiments of Episode 1 and Review wise, but take your best guess! Winner will receive a cookie.

    My prediciton:
    Opening day: 30.3 Million
    Opening Weekend Total: 76 Million

    Whatever the 4 day gross record is AOTC will beat it.. I will see it at least 3 times before the Monday after its release. :D

    My gross prediction is that someone, somewhere, will go to the show drunk and puke on the guy in front of him during the Coruscant chase sequence.

    AYBABTU?

    who cares?
    the film's merit lies in how much money it takes? how sad...

    My guess is anywhere from 800 million to 1.2 Billion in the first day alone. I'm a realist I guess.

    Umm, I guess you're just talking about US figures here?

    Remember there are some other countries out there that now have the magic of cinema technology available, and they will all see the movie at the same time as the US for once (in fact we'll see it even earlier than you guys).

    If you're guesses are for total worldwide box office receipts, then I'd say they're fairly conservative (except the 1.2 billion one :) )

    Remember guys, it is opening in the middle of the week.

    So if you want to be realistic, Spider-Man will have a better opening day. But AOTC will have the better overall weekend.

    most theaters will have midnight showing and extra showing during the day on may 16. so i think it will have close to the $28mill that TPM opened to on its first day.

    also ticket prices are up and i think AOTC will open in more theater then TPM did.

    so thats why i predict it to make somewhere between $100 to $120 in its first 4 days.


    take it to the bank!!

    AOTC may do better than TPM its opening day because regular moviegoers may not be afraid to go because of long lines, etc. because of less hype.

    I have mixed views. Alot of people still think the hype is big, alot of people may or may not have liked TPM (although I question if it was a popular movie with mainstream moviegoers, and a bad movie for fans). Harry Potter made S***LOAD of money though... kind of ridiculous.

    iam hoping AOTC breaks the 3day record that HP set back in nov.2001.

    also i hope it breaks its own record of fastest to reach $100mill. TPM set it at 5 days.

    hell i want AOTC to break every record in the book. although that $600mill is awfully hard to reach.

    why do i care. cause iam a statistic freak. i follow all sports record and boxoffice records. iam weird that way.

    In order for AOTC to do more than 60 million on its opening weekend, I believe it must generate good word-of-mouth in addition to positive critics' reviews.

    So my conservative estimate is 60 million to be reported on Monday morning, the 19th - U.S. figure only.
