I think it will come up short of 400 million. I'm think it tops out around 375-380 million. It did level off this week, dropping only about 35%. So who knows. I just don't see it quite reaching 400 million.

I think it will get right around 400 million. It's $60 million short now, and there's still a lot of summer left and it hasn't even hit the bargain theaters yet. It should pull $5-10 million a week for another month or two and then straggle in some more money toward the end of summer and creep to 400 million.

At this rate, and with a few more "Blockbusters" in the pipeline, it's becoming abundantly clear there is no way it's hitting 400.

I saw it (again) in a digital projection on Saturday afternoon. I was actually pretty surprised at how crowded the theater was... I think it may have even sold out. Not too shabby for a film that came out so long ago.

I think $400 will be a bit of a challenge. It would basically have to continue to pull in $5 per week for the *entire* summer. I suppose that's theoretically possible. But I can't imagine that much $$$ coming in for this in late July or August. People will have moved on.

Still, I don't think anyone involved will have any complaints about the B.O. for this outing. We're looking at about $750million worldwide. (And, with this movie, that's obviously a drop in the bucket compared to DVD sales, merchandising, food promotions, etc.)

Maybe not, but there's always a chance for the obligatory Christmastime re-release to see it one last time on the big screen, when there aren't as many blockbusters around. I can see it doing some repeat business, but that would mean a delay in the dvd release, which probably won't happen.

But how many screens was it playing on? When I saw it on Thursday night and again on Saturday afternoon, both showings were very crowded, but each theater was only playing it on one screen. I think $400M is feasable, but only barely.

Here's last weekends take.

4 3 Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith Fox $10,038,498 -32.4% 2,923 -399 $3,434 $348,140,685 $113 / - 5

Next week will be key, if it can stay around $10 million for a week or two more it's chances of hitting $400 million will be greatly improved.

But I don't think it can stay at 10 million. It may have a small dropoff to 7-8 million, but thay's the best one can hope for.

I think it has a slight chance at staying at $10 million next weekend simply b/c a lot of the repeat geek business was lost to Batman last week and some of that might shift back to ROTS this week before War of the Worlds pulls it away again.

I don't know if its wrong to vote on this now since its already come out but since i have absolutely no iudea how much it earned i guess it's alright to say this...ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Of course it will win all three.

Reasons.

1. Unlike TPM or AOTC, ROTS is not stupid and is friggin awesome!

2. The LAST Star Wars movie in theaters. lots of people who havent seen the movies in theater yet probably dont want to miss this one.

3. Anakin turning into Darth Vader? Come on, you know thats the whole reason for watching the prequels in the first place dont you? well, its finally here.

Seriously, how could spiderman beat Star Wars? thats like... I dont know but spidermans days are numbered and I think the numbers already ran out.
