How much will NEW MOON make opening weekend?

Because we needed another New Moon/vampire thread...

How much do you think New Moon will make opening weekend (Fri-Sun).

It's now Fandango's #1 pre-sale movie ever beating out TDK, Star Wars III and Twilight. For reference, TDK did $155 Million opening weekend.

Re: How much will NEW MOON make opening weekend?

And when I said less I mean between it and the previous poll (i.e. $110 or less would cover $100 - $110).

$100 billions dollars, and that's just from Utah housewives.

Re: How much will NEW MOON make opening weekend?

I'll go 90 million, and I'll vote for 50 million the next weekend, because it's Thanksgiving and people will be looking for something to do.

Re: How much will NEW MOON make opening weekend?

I think its going to hit 115 million OW.

It has shattered the midnight record (26 million)

and Will shatter TDK's OD record.

It has 13.9 MILLION in morning ticket sales

That's what I was going to say until I saw what it earned from the midnight shows last night. Hmmm. Don't know now.

It's a school night so I think many of the teens won't see it until tonight or tomorrow night. The Utah house wives went last night.

Looks like I'm still the only one who voted "$180 Million or Less"?

Re: How much will NEW MOON make opening weekend?

I simply ignored the "or less" part and figured the OP was trying to make the choices into $10m increments.
