Do you think there is enough time left in 09 for New Moon to be first???
could The Twilight Saga: New Moon be the number one film of 2009? Well, a look at the numbers might be a good start.
For starters, the film currently weighing in as the highest total gross heavy-hitter film for 2009 is Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen, with a very impressive $402 million. Transformers was both released in theaters and to DVD/Blu-ray this year. When released to DVD/Blu-ray, as the above-referenced Variety article pointed out, it brought in sales of over 7.5 million copies. Still, it couldn't break Twilight's stance as the number one DVD/Blu-ray sales film for the year (yet, at least). Following is Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince whose midnight release sales were in the mega-millions and whose total gross is a little over $300 million.
So, basically, if The Twilight Saga: New Moon's one and a half months of availability in 2009 can bring in roughly 100 million viewers, it could certainly see victory on this chart as well; but will it?
