Thursday Morning Update: The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey rose 38% on Wednesday to 24,170 tweets and 27.48% market share, up from 17,474 tweets and 16.31% market share on Tuesday. Two solid increases over the last two days have been encouraging for its potential.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I
The Hunger Games
Marvel's The Avengers
The Dark Knight Rises
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
Though this Tuesday total was a decent bump in traffic the film is still lagging significantly behind the Deathly Hallows: Part I which had a ~1,600 ratio a couple years ago. With ratios generally seeing upticks as time progresses I've got to think that 2,000 should be the basement here. With that in mind the $125 million that the aforementioned Potter began with looks to be out of reach at this time. Bear in mind that the December opening record is 'just' $77 million that I Am Legend secured 5 years ago, even the mighty Avatar didn't best it. December is more known for its huge legs rather than top-heavy opening. This December record will be no trouble for The Hobbit to smash but the heights of most of my lofty comparisons are going to be too high to scale.
