The key number in all of these would be "total tickets sold". Most of these wouldn't hold a candle to some of the older movies like Star Wars or Citizen Kane. And yes, 3D does inflate the numbers. However, DOTM had a lot more going for it, not the least of which is an significant- and surprising- appeal among the young female population age 16-25. I took care of 5 patients in that age group in the hospital and all five of them said- without my mentioning it previously- that the new TF movie was the one they were looking forward to the most this past summer. Very surprising to me. But if you get that crowd, you get money...just look at Harry Potter and Twilight.
