This is quite a find, thank you. :)

I've got no problem with this kind of film-making, and I wish them the best. I've yet to see the final result, so I can't judge it...but I'm wondering how well this movie is doing in the theaters? Any results, anyone? :shrug:

Yahoo Movies ( has it listed as having pulled in a little over $123 Million US since it opended six weeks ago. It earned about 8.5 million last weekend.

Goodness me, didn't this film cost approx 400 - 500million to make? :surprised:

I thought about $150. But the IMAX version is also already over $100 mil, isn't it?
