It's Lonely At the Top

Once you get to the top, you realise that everyone wants to bring you down. Peter Jackson and New Line Cinema saw that today, with Columbia Pictures, at least according to them, using creative arithmetic in order to dethrone The Return of the King from No. 1 spot on this weekend's North American box-office chart.

I'm consider myself far from being some rabid Tolkien fan, but I'm little bit worried with weekly drops of The Return of the King grosses being larger than those of two previous films. It is getting unlikely for The Return of the King to reach numbers necessary to de-throne Titanic from the spot of the biggest grossing film of all time. Trilogy as a whole can do it, but not single films.
