    Oh, crap! Yeah, I am almost positive that The Avengers will break Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2's opening record, but not by much. Hopefully it doesn't, it's nice to see HP at the top, just like TDK's reign, it has to end sometime. I honestly didn't think that this would beat HP, I certainly thought TDKR would slaughter HP, even The Hobbit. Wouldn't it be something if TDKR can't beat The Avengers?

    I too prefer DH2 to keep the opening weekend record but I know this is impossible. Too many crowd pleasing movies opening this year and next. The very least, DH2 will be in good company of the best. That said, I do believe The Avengers will either break or the very least closely match DH2 record. Word of mouth is just too good about this one.

    As for the rest of the contenders, I do not think TDKR will set a new weekend opening record. The urgency to see this movie is not the same as the sequel. I hope I am wrong on this

    the hobbit? not a chance. have you seen the trailer? grown man singing...that is a turn-off though I am a big fan of LOTR.

    Here's my take on the top 3 that might set a new weekend opening record

    1. The Hunger Games sequel
    - Sequels to a crowd pleasing movie has proven to be able to open bigger than their predecesor ( POTC 2, Shrek 2, TDK2 etc)

    2. The Avengers 2
    - If TA 1 open north of 150M, then its sequel is sure to open bigger and possibiliy set a new weekend record

    3. Twilight - Breaking Dawn 2
    - Though Breaking Dawn 1 failed to break Eclipse weekend opening record, its 138M was not that far from New Moon 142M. If you apply the same logic as Deathly Hallows 1 & 2 wknd opening record, seems likely for T-BD2 will gross higher than T-BD1 and possibly setting a new weekend record. However, i do not think this will be the case for T-BD2 since Eclipse only managed 142M

    But what I am most interested in is Deathly Hallows 2 Single Opening Day record (91M)

    I honestly cannot think of any movies, even the above-mentioned ones would be able to set a new single day record. if forced, then maybe T-BD2 given its target audiences are very similar to Harry Potter's. Younglings tend to have more sense of urgency than the older audiences. With the finale of Twilight series and Eclipse 2nd Single Opening Day record of 72M, i will be a little surprise if T-BD2 set a new Single Day record.

    Sorry for the long reply....but love this site and this particular topic;-)
