They say a good movie is one that gets better every time you watch it. I saw Star Wars Episode II: AOTC again last night and it was just as good as the first time I saw it. I would have prefered a more active crowd though. They were quiet for the most part until the last 40 minutes.
I’m not exactly sure how much AOTC is going pull in for the weekend, but it’s NOT going to come anywhere close to Spiderman although it will make a lot more in the states overall. There were a good amount of empty seats last night and that was opening night! My guess is a little over $80M for opening weekend and continue to be very steady over the coming weeks because of word of mouth. Lucas himself said it should overall make about 3/4 what Episode I did worldwide, so that’s about $800M. Not bad at all.
