I guess Catching Fire... [In reply to] Can't Post

... will be the ruling movie this fall/winter.

I think there is no way DoS will come close in NA, however, I guess Europe in particular will secure a world-wide "victory" for DoS.


It is an interesting question imho whether AUJ with different reviews would have been able to make around 400 Mio in NA.

Honestly, I have the feeling hype for CF was much much higher this year than that for AUJ ever was - also before the reviews.

I simply think that to make that kind of numbers you need an extra amount of hype that even the Middle-earth franchise cannot simply create, not even with bigger marketing.

The established audience base after LotR ist very strong - that is why AUJ still made 1 billion. But it simply did not have that extra momentum for any kind of break-out that CF now gets.

Just shows how these things are very unpredictable and the "shoulds" from these speculations are often in the end what they are - dreams and wishes: In a positive direction by a movie's supporters or in a negative directions by people not so crazy about a certain flick.

Praise is subjective. And so is criticism.

"I am afraid it is only too likely to be true what you say about the critics and the public. I am dreading the publication for it will be impossible not to mind what is said. I have exposed my heart to be shot at."
