He looks to me to be more of (in Earth terms) Mediterranean/Middle Eastern, which is the exact demographic C.S. Lewis says the Telmarines descended from (the pirates). So I think it's all good. =D

Yeah I think it's fine. I mean, pirates prob have slaves working aboard the ship, so it's a good possibility that there were slaves among the pirates that "happened" into Narnia.

ok, I have a question that's probably more about seeing it in theatres than a narnia fact question... anyways, do you think I can see it in 2D on opening day? Personally, I want to see it in both forms, but my (cheap) friends want to see it in 2D. The only problems is that fandango.com has only posted showtimes for the 3D showing... Does anyone know if we'll have to wait a while, or is the site just being lame?

Are there any movies (In addition to HP 7 pt. 1 and Tron) that could pose a serious threat to VDT's boxoffice run?

I'm not sure PeterCharn, I believe Tangled is our next biggest threat.

^^ I don't think Tangled is much of a threat.....it looks cheesy and should hit a totally different audience than VotDT! :D

@outlier, I don't think you'll have to wait, but I don't have any evidence to back this up.

Dinode, thanks, hopefully the showtimes will come out soon

Other movies coming out on December 10th (most really aren't the VDT audience):
-The Tourist w/ Angelina Jolie, and Johnny Depp
-The Fighter.... looks like a boxing movie
-The Company Men... by skimming the synopsis, it looks like a money movie (like about money and the economy... sorta like wall street movie with Labouf)

Tangled, Tron, and HP:DHP1 are what I'd see as a threat to the movie, but not so much Tron and Tangled.... I guess it just depends on the success of Deathly Hallows

I'm not worried about Tangled, but I am worried about Tron.

I also wouldnt underestimate The Tourist. Sure it targets a different audience, but if it gets enough teen and adult viewers it can surpass VoTDT. Also keep in mind that it stars Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie...pretty much the two biggest stars out right now.

I'd probably say that the two movies that I'm worried about most is Deathly Hallows, and The Tourist....

Like Josh said, it has potential to supprise us and do good at the box office. But I think it'll do good because people like Depp and Jolie

The Deathly Hallows hype was huge this weekend. I asked my friend who went to the theatres, and she said that there wasn't a theatre that didn't have someone dressed up or something fan crazy (my cousin actually suggested that someone who goes to the midnight showing should dress up as a character from lord of the rings and say "you guys are such dorks" haha...)...

Tangled looks like it might take the box office one weekend, and then do mediocre for the rest of the time it's in theatres

I would think that Tron would be highly anticipated, but surprisingly no one I talk to is that interested in it (other than the fact that it has Jeff Bridges in it)

I've got a question that's kinda odd, but hey, why not ask it anyways? :D

Does anyone know if there is a list somewhere of all the theaters that will be showing VDT on opening day? Our one local theater doesn't answer it's phones at all, just has a programed message telling what movies are playing the current week. And they don't have a website, either. So we're trying to make sure we can see VDT there the 10th, so Lizzle can ask off work in time. :)

I think it's safe to assume that all theaters (except for maybe very, very small ones) will be showing VdT on opening day. :) Most websites don't publish the times of movies that they plan to run until about two weeks prior, so I would check that theater some time next week for movie showtimes. I know my very large theater does not have any show times up yet for the 10th, but I know they'll be carrying the film. :)

I just checked Fandango for my area and they were selling tickets for VDT… So you might want to check. ;)

Well, not like I am trying to sound like a box office expert or anything, but here is what I think.

Harry Potter will not be a threat at all, because it opens three weeks before VDT, and will have almost died down by then, or at least won't be bringing in huge bucks like it would the weeks before.

Tangled won't have to be worried about that much because it is opening two weeks before Narnia, and the novelty of the film will also wear off by the time VDT opens.

The Tourist is a film that stars Jolie and Depp, so it could be a blockbuster, but it targets a completely different demographic than VDT. It opens on the same week as VDT, which worries me a little. So, it may steal a little of the press of VDT, but it probably won't affect who sees it that much.

As you said, Tron worries us. I don't think that it will be a huge hit, as it is a sequel to a 30-year-old movie most teens my age have never heard of. However, some people think that it is the biggest movie of the Christmas season, and it will steal some of VDT's 3D screens.

Yogi Bear looks AWFUL, but so did Alvin and the Chipmunks. It is in 3D, so it will also steal some of VDT's screens, if not much else.

The only other one is Gulliver's Travels, which also looks AWFUL. I don't think that it'll interfere, and if it does, Fox isn't very smart, as they are both by them.

I would expect VDT to open to about $50-65 M, and finish off with about $215 M. That would be enough for SC to be made.
Lets go SC!
