KK could still pull in huge worldwide final numbers, but that won't be worth a damn thing on the Tradesports contract. Funny thing is, Titanic had very weak numbers in its opening week but grew from there (actually dropped from #1 at one point but was so strong that it took back over at #1 because people kept going). All time, Titanic has the highest gross ever for a movie in each of its 4th week, 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th week. Pretty sick, huh? EVERYONE is coming back from this movie and loving it. So I imagine it will have huge staying power.
Will be interesting to see what went wrong with this one. Perhaps people just weren't really aware that it was opening yesterday.
I'll wait till Friday's box office take to officially declare this bet dead. But Tradesports right now is giving it a 25% shot of making it.
I'm sure all four of you faithful readers are just thrilled to be reading this shit. Whatever, not like you want to hear about the Pasta Roni I cooked tonight. (BTW, that stuff just never looks like it does on the recipe on the back of the box, does it? Still was quite edible though. For me at least.)
