I think there's no question that Ledger's death caused somewhat of an uptick, but TDK wouldn't have had the run it had if it that were all

Posted by: LanceStorm22 on Jul 09, 16:21 in response to Antibody's post There are many who believe the death of HLEDG bumped up...

it were to it.  While it's still tough to say whether TDKR will surpass the final total, it should do better than TDK OW and has a good shot at having an amazing run since this is the definitive end of Nolan's saga.

THR: Prerelease tracking indicates [BATM3] will eclipse BATM2 to Score Biggest Weekend Opening of All Time for 2D Movie   Antibody on Jul 09, 14:21

I wouldn't be surprised if it beats harry potter and eventually it will have similar legs like that of Dark Knight...i doubt it will come    b4bad on Jul 09, 14:24

I think it can beat AVengers of it's as good as initial buzz {nm}   GMov on Jul 09, 14:32

BATM3 would have to sell more tickets to make up for 3D which was an extra ~$2 to 40% of AVNGR's OW. {nm}   Antibody on Jul 09, 14:41

Yea it can sell more tickets than AVNGR and still have an OW below it. {nm}   Jay_Beezy on Jul 09, 15:15

Can I get a "Well, duh"   islander on Jul 09, 14:35

There are many who believe the death of HLEDG bumped up BATM2. {nm}   Antibody on Jul 09, 14:38

Still, excitement for 3 has been loud enough. It's just i can't believe an ow under batm2 could ever been considered {nm}   islander on Jul 09, 14:46

I've read a number of folks constantly state this and I've told them constantly that they're wrong.   MiyazakiFan on Jul 09, 14:52

yes, just simply unbelievable. i want so badly for BATM3 to hold that record and Avengers had to go and truly screw the pooch   lobogotti on Jul 09, 17:47

I think it did. BUT   Dales on Jul 09, 15:52

which is a HUGE reason Inception did so well...the Nolan draw. this is also a reason TDKR will capitalize even more.   lobogotti on Jul 09, 17:44

It was that amazing performance by HLEDG that bumped BATM2. {nm}   mrbeankc on Jul 10, 01:36

wow...people saying it might beat TDK...seems to imply it's a better movie {nm}   tealfan on Jul 09, 15:15

No, it doesn't... {nm}   slappydavid on Jul 09, 15:20

then what's the basis for it potentially doing better than TDK? {nm}   tealfan on Jul 09, 17:12

I don't know, but what I do know is that box office results are not indicative of movie quality... {nm}   slappydavid on Jul 09, 17:17

too bad not many traders are left to buy it. i suppose twins would have to work o/t :) {nm}   Oleg Max on Jul 09, 15:46

How does tracking compare with Hunger Games? {nm}   Tanker on Jul 09, 16:05
