THAT'S MILLION BUCKS

#3 Edited by MooseyMcMan (11421 posts) -

Neat.  
 
Also, I think that since a couple years have passed since Dark Knight, and the US monies have inflated since then, I think it could top it, though I also think that would be sad.

Rorie must have an external hard drive full of videos of puppies and kittens.

Edit: 140 MILLION BUCKS!!!

i'm gonna go high and say 168 though it could go higher. this is part one of the end book. this is the beginning of the climactic end for this series. people all over are gonna come out of the woodworks for this movie like no ones business. i feel sorry for the russell crowe and the crew of the next three days because that movie will prolly do ok but it'll get squashed by HP. i will not be shocked if it beats dark knight for opening weekend record. i look forward to seeing it this weekend. hopefully thursday night.

#7 Posted by Claude (16254 posts) -

No way it beats the Dark Knight. Maybe 135 million bucks.

#8 Posted by FLStyle (4927 posts) -

Well if anything we have confirmation that Brad and Drew are back safe and sound.
 
I'm going to say $138 million. Only Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 AKA The final Harry Potter film will break $150 million.

Matt's  totally work related animal research is pleasing.
 
Also, put me down for 145 mil, give or take 5 million. 
 
@rjayb89: Not just videos. He has literal puppies and kittens hidden there. It's oddly spacious...

#10 Posted by Trace (3577 posts) -

Forgive me if this has been mentioned before, but is the winner who's closest, or who's closest without going over? I'm assuming the former.
 
In any case, I'm going wildly pessimistic by comparison. $88 million. I'm banking on growing movie apathy.

125 and part 2 beating Dark Knight

#13 Posted by Sarumarine (2310 posts) -

I don't bet because my luck is like a flat tire. It's around, but it doesn't roll. I do like watching other people bet money. Probably because it's no risk on my part. Heh.
 
Also, I like how Drew comes into frame at the last bit of the video. I feel like he could get away with "Hey guys, I'm back from Korea, no big deal."

#14 Posted by Jay_Ray (1134 posts) -

$140 000 000 is my guess

#15 Posted by JoeyF (110 posts) -

Here's where we're at so far.  Still waiting on a few...

#16 Posted by chocolaterhinovampire (1298 posts) -

Would have been my guess too.
#20 Posted by AgentMOO (183 posts) -

I'm going for $145 million. I think the last two have much more of a draw than the past few due to the climactic events.

I bet one dollar!

#22 Posted by SuperfluousMoniker (2913 posts) -

I don't know. I think a lot of people might be turned off by the whole 'part 1' thing.

#23 Posted by RobotHamster (4177 posts) -

Put me down for 133 million.

#24 Posted by artofwar420 (6312 posts) -

Can't wait to see the results.

#25 Posted by CitizenKane (10508 posts) -
@JoeyF:  Some pretty good bets there.
 
Put me down for $135.5 million.
#26 Edited by LiquidPrince (16186 posts) -

$146 million.
 
Edit: Fuck that... Twilight made 142 million... I change my bet to 165 million.

Theres a ton of Harry Potter fans, I'm sure it will do really well. Lets say $145 mil opening weekend.

#33 Posted by Jasta (2217 posts) -

$140 mil. 

I'll eat the socks that I'm wearing if it beats Dark Knight.

Yup, you've just about got it.  The most Harry Potter has made over a 3 day period is $107 million with the last film. New Moon and even Eclipse have done better. Still, this is the first blockbuster in a while and the beginning of the end for the series, so it'll definitely take the midnight opening crown, might top opening day crown but it'll probably open to somewhere around $125-130 million max. It'll break $300 million domestic (probably around $320-330 million) when all said and done and it could be the fourth film this year (after Avatar, Toy Story 3 and Alice in Wonderland) to make over $1 billion worldwide in ticket sales.  
 
 
Actual bet? Fine, put me down for $126.8 million for the three-day period.
#35 Edited by Sanj (2547 posts) -

ONE MILLION DOLLARS.

Wow, you're betting low.

#37 Posted by MadeinFinland (839 posts) -

I'm saying $125mill. 
and way to be indecisive Norm. Indecisiveness always wins. I think it does.. does it?

#38 Posted by nick_verissimo (1404 posts) -

I'm saying $130 million, but part two will make closer to $150 million based on the fact that it will be the absolute last Potter film and everyone will want to be apart of the event.  I'm also planning to see this movie twice this opening weekend, so if enough people are as retarded as I am, this movie will make some CASH.

#39 Posted by Borodin (417 posts) -

775 Million. That's million bucks, and so on :P

Twilight and Harry Potter is totally the same demographic.  
 
Also, I'm going low. $115 million.

#50 Edited by MisterChief (832 posts) -

Why are you all going so high when the last two films in the series both made $77 million opening weekend? Only one of the films ever made more than $100 million on its first weekend and this film has a number of factors working against it.
 
It is part 1 of a 2 parter. It isn't in 3D and the time between its release and the last film is the shortest for the series which doesn't allow for as great a build up.
 
I say $115 million too.
