# 3 in the usa and # 5 in the world with a grand total of 703 million for 2007 on half the movie screens that most other movies had their movies released on is not a box office winner ? It's not the number one spot of course but that's a winner to me!
Anyway, great news of course and it will only increase the budget for TF2 and we'll get more bots and more improvements in general.

:D
