Anchorman seems like it could be the ultimate high expectations not met.... it wasn't the greatest movie of all time to begin with though there are plenty of great parts.... and Mitty could just plain surprise coming in unannounced. If you had to choose just one?

Anchorman 2, hands down.

I like the 5 extra days over the holiday break for Anchorman 2 and the advertising budget has been impressive. Heard that Dodoge is happy with sales coming from the commercials.

I would think that Walter Mitty would have better legs for playing in January.

got to see Anchorman 2 last week. If you liked the first one you'll like this one. Funny but over the top silly. The audience was in hysterics. Mitty looks really good, too, though. Depends on your audience I guess.

Anchorman 2 will do Austin Powers 2 numbers. Walter Mitty will perform like We Bought a Zoo.

I wish that Will Ferrel would work a little harder at promoting :laugh: the film.

If you think Anchorman 2 will do Austin Powers in Goldmember numbers ($200 mil +) you must have seen a different movie than I did. It's Harold & Kumar all over again. First movie does ok, blows up on DVD, OMG we must make another!!!

I've been impressed by the marketing of Anchorman 2. At first, I thought a second Anchorman was a lame concept, but they're doing an excellent job of marketing that I have no doubt it will do well. I mean, Ron Burgundy is out there co-hosting real newscasts. That actually made me laugh. We're booking it, no question. As a triplex, the big question is what to put on the third screen with Anchorman & Hobbit. I wish we had a good PG family picture out. I'm not feeling good about the dinosaurs movie.

Big first weekend because they marketed the crap out of it, then dead when word of mouth kicks in. Have you seen the picture?

IMDB rating so far are 6.4 vs 7.2 on the first one. Good enough for pretty good box office numbers. No brainer to book it if you have 3 or more screens and pretty much mirror what the mainstream box office does.

Mitty is a 7.1 right now. You still need something to play in January.
