    I think we can assume that the term "ass-load" is an appropriate way to describe the potential box office take of this film.

    Yeah, I expect at least a $40m Friday total at the least.

    That's impossible. Movies never make any money anymore, due to piracy.

    ARE THEY LYING TO US?!

    I was surprised even the trainers at my gym were talking about going to midnight shows and these guys typically put on a (somewhat self-aware and knowing) anti-geek macho image in there.

    I have to say, I had no idea the general public was so excited to see this movie. Obviously the comic book fans were, but clearly all those amazing reviews got everybody else's attention too.

    After TDK these two guys were betting on on much moolah the movie would be taking in this weekend. Either they were real geeks or the gen. public is really psyched for this film.

    It has already done $18m from just the early Friday morning showings according to some reports. The movie is just going to soar from there.

    It's going to have an AWESOME opening probably well north of $100m.

    OK folks, everyone go see it a second and third time so we can ensure it takes the crown and kicks lame-ass Spider-Man 3's ass! :devil:

    I've already seen it twice, once in regular theaters and once in IMAX. I am very tempted to see it a third time before the weekend is over.
