No surpirses here but I'm really glad to hear about how much they are making.

Lol and basically every dollar we see it make here will be pure profit. I predict it breaks, or comes really really really close, to a billion dollars. I say it even pushes buttons to be the fastest one there.

My husband and I are going to see it in 3D on Friday even though 3D bothers me (I don't care..I want to see it anyway like that just once). Then next week we are going to see it in 2D. I'm just like a little kid every day waiting for this movie.

I can barely afford to see it once lol, really trying hard to save my money to see all the movies I want to see this summer. Not being able to find a job sucks

I've seen the film, love it! If I get a chance to watch it again, I will.

I'll definitely get the Blu Ray release of this movie when it comes out.

I just love watching all that color and action on that hugh screen. I know I'll get the Blu-ray but then you sit to watch it on a smaller tv at home and it's just not the same....don't get me wrong...I'll still watch it again.
