WHOA! That took no time at all!
It’s being reported that The Great Gatsby has already broken ticket-sale records! Its Thursday 10pm and Friday midnight shows garnered a whopping $3.25 million, surpassing fellow 'female-driven' flick Sex and the City 2's $3 million! That’s huge!
What’s more, opening weekend pre-sales are coming in strong, with the film’s production studio hoping to cross the $35 million mark. Some are even expecting it to compete with Iron Man 3’s monstrous stats.
It looks like Baz Luhrmann knew exactly what he was doing with this adaptation, folks, beginning with his casting of Leo DiCaprio! And that stellar soundtrack.
Let the race begin!
