          @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx Oh, maybe Narrator will be back on here eventuallly and he will talk to him about it. I don't want to have to get myself involved in that argument.

            @themoviefanatic -- I wanted you to calm Cartman down. But, it seems like The Narrator isn't going to respond, so Cartman might scram.

                "GONE WITH THE WIND" Los Angeles, the film had its premiere at the elegant Carthay Circle Theatre. From December 1939 to June 1940, the film played only advance-ticket road show engagements at a limited number of theaters, before it went into general release in 1941.[26] It was a sensational hit during the Blitz in London, opening in April 1940, and played for four years.[27] It replaced The Birth of a Nation as the highest-grossing film of all-time,[28] holding the position until 1966, when it was finally overtaken by The Sound of Music.[

                Movies now a day never run that long, I mean Avengers will run three month more then we will have another big movie coming up, Things are diferent in the old days so i dont want to hear about price ajustment or 3D tickets are more money, This movie did very very well, and it will do double the number in 1940 if it ran a year like the old movies use to do.

                  @bawnian-dexeus -- Who knows? Showering him with "100 lines" per comment isn't going to help, either. I think this is the time where we call a real hero; someone who's knowledgeable enough to talk handle such escalated situations. Someone who will stand their ground by the very end. Someone by the name of @themoviefanatic!

                            @Joshua-Hollaway No doubt, Whedon's Avengers. First Batman did ok for a reboot, second film became the first Batman to reach a billion and no doubt the third, but I believe the sequel to Avengers and possibly the third when put together will have higher winnings.

                              How about we ask some new questions? Which series do you think we raise more money Nolans Batman series or Whedons Avengers series ( since they plan on having 3 phases, I believe I read)

                                @c-a-r-t-m-a-n, you said:

                                "I honest didn read a word from your comment and I stand by what I have said!!"

                                ..are my comments too long and sophisticated for someone like yourself? Pity. You're clearly the same old close-minded dick you've been for the past two years, so I really shouldn't have expected any different. That's on me.

                                  @dan1 True, but I'm tired, and laying waste to people and their arguments has lost its luster.

                                    @ejk1 You do realize that if everyone took your stance on everything, there would probably be no flame wars. What fun would that be? Half my entertainment from this site comes from reading the pointless arguments :P

                                      @c-a-r-t-m-a-n No you want to start a fight by calling me names. Frankly I don't know how you even get off on calling be a TDKR fanboy but not also call me an Avengers fanboy. I rated The Avengers a 4.5 out of 5 on this site and have spent 30 bucks on this movies(3 viewings).

                                        Well. i might have a clue. Avengers was sold out at my matinee shows on the first Saturday a couple of months ago, I will be going again at the same time for TDKR so I will let you guys know if that those shows are sold out and then we will see if it will top AVENGERS. which i think the record is safe. Avengers opens in Japan next month so it will continue to make more money,
