I knew it was going to be big but I never dreamt it would be that big.
Is there anyone left (besides me) that hasn't seen it?

Those are impressive figures, but,because they're based on cash takings rather that actual 'bums on seats' it doesn't really mean much - as cinema prices go up (especially for 3D and Imax screenings) each big film that comes out is going to do better than the one before. The important thing is the pleasure that the audience gets - and I'm sure that the HP audience is going to keep the films on the top of the charts that really mean something for a long time to come.

Impressive. $168.55 million! (I can’t imagine how much money it is).
I'm planning to watch it again very soon.

And me. I am waiting for my movie buddies to return from vacation. I'm babysitting for the next few days so I won't be able to post much. I'm am reading posts with nephew asking his usual 25 questions. :shock:
