    The French opening is programed on May, the 2nd and it will hit the charts on Friday night, and Saturday, this same week.

    As I can never more go to the theatre, I will wait for the combo (BR + digit) pack to be available soon!!!! (my BR reader is an "all zone" one... :) )

    It already opened in France last Wednesday. I went to see it twice.

    I'll be VERY shocked if this movie doesn't give the Dark Knight and Avatar a run for it's money. I plan on seeing it this Friday. So far everything I've heard about it has been awesome. Looking forward to seeing for myself!

    This makes me happy. The movie was awesome. I'm cautiously optimistic, though, since a lot of Marvel's comic book films have reached that kind of record overseas, but I don't think they're not this fast to break 100M.

    I can't wait for our US-based, comic-reading brothers and sisters to watch this. I'll be watching it the second time with you guys come May 4th!

    According to this, the revised estimate is now 185.1 million dollars for the foreign gross. That's impressive.

    Only three more days! I haven't been this jazzed for a movie in a long time.

    I expected this film to do well financially and I expected to enjoy it as a fan of the property. However, to say that I'm a bit surprised at just how well it's doing both financially AND critically would be an understatement.

    It hasn't even hit domestically and the film has already nearly broken even AND it's got a 97% fresh rating last I checked. I didn't think it had a snowball's chance of outperforming or being better reviewed than Dark Knight Rises a month ago, but now I'm not so sure.

    Funniest bit of irony would be it only raked in ten million. But in all seriousness, it'll do well.

    They have already sold more than that in presales I think.

    The opening weekend presales are 4000% higher than the presales for Captain America.
