Wednesday Morning Update: The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey rose 33% on Tuesday to 17,474 tweets but curiously fell significantly in market share to 16.31%. This came on the heels of 13,179 tweets and 27.01% market share on Monday. The market share took such a huge hit thanks to the first full trailer for Man Of Steel which had a whopping 43,015 tweets yesterday and 40.16% market share.
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.
