It seems that the analysts are in agreement [In reply to] Can't Post

that DOS faces tough competition domestically and will likely gross less than the first film. International is a different story: the film is expected to top the first films $700m haul and $1 billion seems assured.

Yes it will take less [In reply to] Can't Post

In North America, but overseas seems to have got of to a good start.
So hopefully it will top the 1st film.

300 million [In reply to] Can't Post

I still believe it will hit that mark here in the states.

The US is foreign. [In reply to] Can't Post

We are on the internet: everywhere is both domestic and foreign, depending on where you live.

Also, a British story, directed and filmed by New Zealanders, in New Zealand, with US studio money (plus NZ tax break cash), with mainly UK, NZ and Irish actors, and an international crew, with most profits generated outside the US. It's not really clear where the domestic market is - the world, basically.

Yes, but on these forums, since this is an American site, I believe [In reply to] Can't Post

When people say 'domestic' they are referring to North America (USA and Canada). This term always struck me as odd on other forums as well, by the way, but that's how it is. My 'domestic' is the UK.

Well, I'm looking at the site right now [In reply to] Can't Post

and it's definitely in my living room, in Scotland. And I'm replying to someone from the UK. TORN is effectively an international site - by and for the fans of Tolkien - who are a pretty cosmopolitan bunch.

As far as the film is concerned, I'd consider New Zealand to be the domestic market.

But we don't usually refer to 'domestic' market, do we? [In reply to] Can't Post

It's generally an American term, I think.

It's a universal term [In reply to] Can't Post

referring to the home market of a particular country - we might hear it less in Britain, but it is an established term. UK has always been heavily involved in overseas trade, so the domestic market probably has less importance for us.

"Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear."
