    True, but others mention it and I just wanted to throw out the number for reference.

    I saw the Yahoo! article about the movie being at #1 again and silently cheered it on. :D

    On the one hand it is nice to see a horror film doing so good. On the other, I have almost no interest in it as neither of these characters are very interesting. Shame it couldn't have been something a bit more interesting than another damn remake with worn out characters - but - oh well. This should put us in good stead for more horror next year.

    I can't believe it I agree with dwatts;) I have no interest in this movie at all either but it is good to see a horror movie (if that's what you can call it hehe) do good.

    I am glad it is doing so well, because I love Freddy and Jason, even if I can't see the damn movie until September at the earliest. Still, I kind of fear the movie's success as well. With this and 28 Days Later doing so well, you just know the crap copycats are going to be hitting any day now.

    but what exactly will there be copycats of? i don't really see much VS movies. i know Aliens Vs Predator is coming up, but that's also a movie that has been thought about for a long time , and not just jumping on the bandwagon. as for copycats of 28 days later, i'm all for zombie (or zombie-like) flicks!! :D

    If a movie or a tv show does well, there are ALWAYS crap copycats. Don't sell the industry short.

    And I just checked the movie schedule and we don't get this for all of September either. This means the earliest I can get it is October. :cry:

    For the first time in 12 days, FVSJ has finally fallen from the top spot. SWAT inched past it on Tuesday, but more than likely it will jump higher on the charts by the time the weekend comes. JEEPERS CREEPERS 2 will probably get #1, but FVSJ shouldn't be far off.

    It's sad that JC2 of all movies will be the one to dethrone F vs J :(

    I doubt FvsJ will make $100m but $67m so far is pretty good.
    And yeah, cheers to JC2 - the new number one horror flick at the box office (so far) :banana:

    Domestically speaking, you may have a point. However, FREDDY VS JASON should easily go over $100 million after international distribution.......and THEN the home video market....not to mention merchandising.....and PPV.....and cable......blah, blah, blah....

    That's exactly what I meant, domestically speaking.
    I'm sure it will make twice once it hits DVD, merchandising, foreign-rights blah blah blah :)

    Grrr - can we have a number one horror film with a bit more inventiveness? It's really great to see them doing well - but damn, they're just not very interesting, imho. Now we have Jeepers Crappers II. One was enough.:cry:

    I say it was too much :) I'm saddened that JC2 beat FvsJ, but oh well, I knew it would happen. Let's just hope things like Cabin Fever and others like it do well too so we'll get more like that too. I know I'll be there as soon as I can (I wanted to say opening weekend, but damn if Once Upon a Time in Mexico isn't calling my name!).
