Courtesy of Terry Rossio and Ted Elliott, the two writers, from Terry's board, which is Wordplayer.com

This is a compressed file in PDF format that is free for the downloading. Great stuff if you're in-to screenplays and the writing of movies.

Go to the link, then click on the title of the script.

David Poland on the 2007 sequel season:

Quote:
The two real stories in next year's sequels are the 1-2-3- of Spidey, Shrek and Cap'n Jack in May. Only five films in history have grossed $400 million on their initial runs. And three of them have sequels in one month this summer.

I am pretty sure that May 2003 is the biggest release month in movie history with $1.4 billion being earned by its 46 releases. Four were $200 million movies:

Finding Nemo - $340 million
The Matrix Reloaded - $282 million
Bruce Almighty - $243 million
X2: X-Men United - $215 million

These four titles totaled 1.08 billion. The last episodes of this May's big sequel trio earned $1.24 billion.

And anything less than $1.05 for these three would sure be seen as a disappointment.

Those are some big stupid shoes.

Terry Rossio is predicting "POTC At World's End" will have a much smaller gross than the earlier two. He feels the Shrek and Spiderman sequels are going to eat up so much of the available viewer-dollars that At World's End will come in low. You can search for his post on the topic over at his board.

If you're into grosses-guessing, he'll be posting his Spring-Summer guesses in the next few months, if he hasn't already. I don't follow that board the way I used to because I pretty-much stopped regularly going to movies. If ya can't or won't go to wrestling, movies or baseball, go to the opera, which I'll do.
