    I've written a good argument for my reasoning, but now I'm going to put my proverbial money where my proverbial mouth is --

    I bet 100 credits that Star Wars: Episode VII will be a $3 Billion dollar (in worldwide box office) movie! (And, yes, I slightly amended my bet from my article as there is a possibility that Avengers 2 becomes the first $3 B movie.) Remember, house doubles the jackpot!

    Any takers?

    That would be great if it happened but I dont know if ANY movie will accumulate $3B. ( puts pinkie to lip ) unless the price of a ticket triples.

    Edit: Ok, I made the transfer and after looking at some numbers I'm gonna agree that it will be a $3 Bill movie. Have to throw in the fact of 3-D and possibly IMAX which throws up the price of about 20-30%. Along with the new 4-D? The one where the seats move and air blows, if that's the one?

    $3 billion is an awful lot of money. I will bet 100 credits against it occurring.

    Apparently, Entertainment Weekly agrees with your sentiment, Echo:



    I personally believe that The Force Awakens can easily clear $2,000,000,000; beating out Avatar and going all the way to $3,000,000,000 is within the realm of possibility.

    I'm betting 500 credits that it will make this much money (and possibly a bit more after that) when all is said and done.

    Looks like the EW guy was a prophet in regards to the movie's opening weekend - let's hope he's right about this as well.
