What's your thoughts on biggiest opening weekend for 2003??
I think Matrix 2 and 3 will each beat RotK on opening weekend.
I've even bet a few friends that it will.
If RotK wins thats fine with me I'm looking forward to that movie too.
Actually I think Matrix 2 and 3 will have the best opening weekend for the year of 2003. It's going to be hard though with so many great movies coming out.
What do you guys think?

I too would like to see The Matrix win that title, I really do. But it would be highly unlikely because of the fact that LOTR is rated PG and The Matrix is rated R, therefore the potential of making money is a lot more for LOTR. The age groups affects the boxoffice stats immensly. But the truth remains that we never know, there are a l lot of fans eagerly awaiting their Matrix fix...and that since 1999...me for one! :D

i'm looking forward to both matrix movies and RotK pretty much equally...

but RotK's 3+ hour run time puts it at a disadvantage in terms of first weekend take...however, for some reason, i have a bit more faith in its longevity.

first weekend...matrix.

I would think RotK will beat the matrix movies, not combined of coarse. But RoaK, IMHO, will, or atleast should, take in more money, but you never know.

RotK reaches a MUCH wider audience than Matrix -- I choose that.

I have to give the slight edge to RotK because of the PG-13 rating and the fact that it's completing the trilogy. The second Matrix film will do extremely well, especially due to the anticipation, but RotK will edge it out, I think.
