    The actuals have just been posted at Box Office Mojo.com.
    It's $135.6 million!!!!!
    That's over three million more than estimated, which is odd in that the estimates and actuals don't usually vary that much.

    I heard on the morning news that it made $55 million in Friday alone. I believe worldwide (not including USA) it made $44 million? Not sure though...

    Congrats to Disney and everyone involved with making the movie...Great job!

    It's best to estimate low as opposed to high, it looks bad if you don't make as much as you said you did, likewise they have countless research and equations to project how much a film will make on Sunday based on how well it has done on Friday and Saturday. You'd be suprised just how accurate weekend estimates can be. Especially if you are into this sorta stuff and watch box office info.

    Now the tricky part will be to see how it does today (Monday) and if it continues its 20.4% drop off or if it holds steady. My prediction for Monday's take is 15-25 million, which will bring the total to above 150mil for 4 days. I'd love to be proven wrong and it continues at 25-30 but I just don't see that happening. Anything above 20mil on Monday would be stellar.

    I know that Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest has done very, very well. I also want to point out that Cars broke the $200.000 Million dollar mark this weekend and was number 5 at the box office.

    It feels good to know that I helped contribute to that record. And I would have contributed to it more but sold out sunday night

    I could tell Friday that it was going to be huge by the crowds at a normally quiet theater. Sunday night crowd was huge as well for late showings even.

    I don't think the estimates are all that accurate. 3% isn't too bad, though. $3 million off from a $20 million estimate: that would be bad.
