SW can make at least $150-160 million in its first weekend no matter what. Add to that the possible Wednesday and Thursday totals if it's released mid-week and you have $260 million easily from its first five days. If it is released in very early December, it will make another $100 million during the Christmas holiday on weekends alone with summer-like mid week totals during the holidays. Therefore, by the end of the New Years weekend, the film could easily pass $400 million (possibly closer to $450 million). Then it will drop steadily after that but level off due to low January competition. All in all, the film could make upwards of $500 million from a December release. Hunger Games will be released around Thanksgiving so if SW has a December release, it will be at least two weeks after that.
