I originally thought it couldn't do better than Iron Man 2 since it's the eame audience as any Marvel movie...

Unless, there's more Avengers fans than there are of the individual superheroes?

bummer {nm}   Oleg Max on May 01, 11:26

and there was much wailing of confusion and lamentation of the women. {nm}   Paul2k on May 01, 11:28

only at your house {nm}   RHAWK on May 01, 11:30

at the moment no...the women are a)grocery shopping and b)sleeping on my lap. hooray for no lamentations! {nm}   Paul2k on May 01, 11:44

spoke too soon. the one in my lap just farted, woke herself up, and is now wailing. booo. {nm}   Paul2k on May 01, 11:48

yet, you are still able to type full sentences... bravo! {nm}   Oleg Max on May 01, 11:50

Ouch. {nm}   Dave3626 on May 01, 11:28

How's advance sales looking so far? {nm}   Antibody on May 01, 11:41

What's the rule of thumb when MTC and RS Differ by a wide margin? It swings past MTC's direction? {nm}   arf on May 01, 11:44

That's the theorem, yep. *If* it were to hold true, this would indicate an opening well below 140m. Don't see that happening myself, but..   ShawnMR on May 01, 11:46

Inception defied the theorem, so fingers crossed this does the same. {nm}   Jay_Beezy on May 01, 12:08

The last 3 weekends defied that theorem, so hopefully it will be busted with this one, or there will be a lot of bloody ports. {nm}   arf on May 01, 12:16

did it really? look at 5YENG and PIRTS, MTC was lower than RS and lo, the rule was 'proved'   Jane_Citizen on May 01, 13:09

Maybe I was thinking the weekends before that. There were exceptions, a few in a row, forgot which. {nm}   arf on May 01, 13:10

LOL ... Well, don't I look silly now? (But seriously though, 140?? -- That would translate to potentially fewer tickets than Iron Man 2) {nm}   ShawnMR on May 01, 11:44

You do look silly. I mean, we all know that MTC is never, ever, ever wrong :) {nm}   Roger More on May 01, 11:46

I'm all about low expectations though, haha. {nm}   ShawnMR on May 01, 11:47

THR's report on the worldwide outlook for this weekend still says tracking points to 150+ for domestic.   Paul2k on May 01, 11:47

Let's hope. My optimistic prediction aside, I think the domestic pass/fail line has to be 140m on the dot. Any less would be really   ShawnMR on May 01, 11:51

yeah, but that was this morning's article... before MTC came out... {nm}   Oleg Max on May 01, 11:52

What does one have to do with the other? {nm}   Antibody on May 01, 11:54

time stamp? I thought it meant something..   Oleg Max on May 01, 11:58

I don't think THR uses RS tracking - their weekend predictions are too different. I'm pretty sure they get inside info from the studios. {nm}   Roger More on May 01, 12:01

There's no indication THR uses RS or MTC. Their tracking is NRG (and maybe OTX) {nm}   Antibody on May 01, 12:02

Got me there... What do OTX and NRG stand for? {nm}   arf on May 01, 13:24

They're both market research companies. NRG is National Research Group, and part of Nielsen. I don't think OTX stands for anything, but it's   Roger More on May 01, 13:53

Hmmm...looks big, no doubt, just not record breaking big. {nm}   thatpj on May 01, 12:35

3-4 quad movie....they are almost never good with those one way or the other {nm}   alfpaulytd2012 on May 01, 11:46

That seems awfully low to me, but who knows?    FilmGo on May 01, 11:46

uh oh. reverse mtc/rs. That usually spells bomb! (but for some reason I dont think this will be the case.) {nm}   thatpj on May 01, 12:17
