I was more or less touching on the fact that as the price of tickets increase so will the revenue the film earns. Ticket prices have increased so much in the recent years that this movie's sales probably won't even be comparable to Spider-Man let alone Titanic. I think it was like $7.25 for a ticket when I went to see the last Star Wars, now its about $10 at the same theater.

I just looked at the top Box Office movies, and 15 of the top 20 are since 2002, and 18 of the top 25 as well.

I know what you're saying though, its gonna be a big movie.

Yea, that's what I meant pretty much.

Either Titanic or Gone With the Wind most likely.
