: I'm just wondering what Titanic breaking the Star Wars record has to do with Indy...
Considering the fact that tickets were selling at around $1.50 a head for Star Wars, that would mean 4.666666 people were admitted in to see Star Wars for every single Titanic ticket sold at the average price of $7.00. If we're talking dollars against ticket sales, I'm not sure I follow it either. I will admit that with 11 Oscar wins it was definately the flavor of the month, but I'm interested in how much staying power it will ever have against titans such as Indiana Jones or Star Wars. They fire the imagination, Titanic is a story told, then stops with the credits. You can't exactly create a sequel, can you. They've already written and filmed "Raise the Titanic". Not exactly the same, is it? Regards. Michaelson
