BO update: $10 mil away from 1 billion Can't Post

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/hobbit-back-again-pushed-back-425499

AUJ is at $990 mil before the weekend.

So close to 1 billion I can taste it. Hopefully it happens this weekend so we can have an early celebration. Cool

Good... [In reply to] Can't Post

it'll definitely make it this week-end, and i'll finally be able to quit paying attention to box office (though i'm still hoping it pulls ahead of Skyfall domestically).

I said back in December ... [In reply to] Can't Post

That AUJ would reach $1 billion quicker than Bond. Unfortunately, it hasn't. If it were still in the cinema, they'd be getting my money.

Hopefully this weekend [In reply to] Can't Post

will push it to the billion dollar mark, if not over it. I really want the movie to do so well, because I love it so very much. And because it hasn't been rewarded in terms of awards, all the more reason I would love to see it do well financially. Just to give the nay-sayers a kick upside the jacksie! Oh, and welcome to the boards!!! Smile

Yeah i thought it would do as well [In reply to] Can't Post

Though before Skyfall's release, i would never have guessed it making just over a billion dollars!

Awesome! It seems it shall indeed reach it before next weekend when that damned Oz [In reply to] Can't Post

(which I may still see at some point, despite my patriotic vitriol) opens in China. . . how the HELL does that movie get to open there on the same day it does here, instead of having to wait a month or more like Avengers, An Unexpected, Skyfall and the rest?!!! No matter, though. At this point, 1 billion is all but guarunteed, even with Morgoth's host seeking to assail it,.

Guestimating that it is currently standing around about 997M ish as of Saturday. [In reply to] Can't Post

I'd concur with Estel78's prediction and say it's a fairly safe bet that It will likely cross the 1 BN mark by Monday or Tuesday. :) (Might do it today, but I'm a bit cautious with my predictions, typically projecting the lower end of my window.)

AUJ is still playing here where I live [In reply to] Can't Post

(Western Washington), at least until March 7th (3-D only). It's been going week-by-week, so every Wednesday I check my local theaters online. It surprises and pleases me to see it's still going!

Perhaps... [In reply to] Can't Post

WB did not submit an estimate to BOM. Because boxoffice.com also does not show an estimate for it. But it is somewhat strange.

No, I don't think so [In reply to] Can't Post

However, this is probably its last weekend. It made $49k on Thursday but probably didn't make enough to really submit until monday to be honest.

According to BO Mojo The Hobbit has passed 1 billion. Cool
