Cheers everyone! Let's wish the rest of the journey to be even more exciting and enjoyable.


All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost,
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

It was bound to eventually [In reply to] Can't Post

After three months in theatres and a truly global release should we have expected anything less?

Still, a milestone has been achieved even if its effect is largely psychological. Congratulations to anyone with a stake in the films' success.

I suspect [In reply to] Can't Post

That the movie would have passed the 1 billion mark by early February if it's release in China not been pushed back two and a half months compared to the rest of the world.

Three cheers from me too! [In reply to] Can't Post

I've been biting my fingernails ever since it opened in China - I thought that all those pirated copies might have seriously dented the market. But it looks as though it quite possibly earned around $40m in the first 10 days.
