    I'm shocked it's just matching the numbers of the first one with the benefit of an added day. I've never heard of a VERY well reviewed, an A cinemascore sequel following a loved popular first film and no competition with added 3D and imax, not jumping tremendously. My guess would be keeping the plot so secretive, stunted growth... maybe they should have not used a twist as part of the main plot for the bad guy and sold him instead. And maybe the 4 year gap slowed excitement a bit.

    I'm impressed with the 25 percent Saturday increase. A sign of the good word of mouth or the Thursday opening lessening pressure on the Friday numbers?

    My original predictions were 250 here and 250 overseas... seems like they are on pace for a 250 overseas number (double the first). I read many of the markets they opened in already made more than the entire run of the first. Main goal here is to spread the fan base overseas. It's really impressive that it opened in Russia with 8 million when the last one just made 4 million in it's entire run.

    Great word of mouth and the holiday coming up will keep the film moving along but i think it will struggle to hit 250.

    If there is a third, I suspect they are not gonna horse around with secrets and just sell the damned thing. And I wonder if they alter the ad campaign this week.

What do you think?
