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.
yea its big...

also, you can see all movies adjusted for inflation here:

the problem is, you have to account for population changes (but more importantly the fact that theaters were more popular back then...now we have on-demand, hulu, a lot of other stuff)

its like sports, cant really compare gretzky to crobsy in terms of stats OR skills (b/c stats were much more open then, but players train harder now)

just stuff to think about...but it will certainly be the biggest movie in the last 5 years, which is a pretty big deal in itself
