The 2012 London Olympics Opening Ceremony Was Record-Breaking!

Filed under: TV NewsRoyals RoyceOlympics

Even though some folks weren't too pleased that NBC decided to withhold the 2012 Olympics opening ceremony in London so they could air it for US primetime Friday night, it certainly paid off…and broke some RECORDS in the process!

That's right, 40.7 MILLION VIEWERS tuned in to watch the Danny Boyle-directed spectacle, marking it the MOST-WATCHED Summer Games opening EVER, and also the MOST-WATCHED NON-U.S. Olympics opener ever!

In fact, the only ceremony it falls behind was that of the 2002 Salt Like City Winter games!

Not too shabby!

And with the AH-MAZINGness that was the James Bond/Queen Elizabeth sketch, we honestly can't say we're too surprised!

If you haven't yet seen this, watch (above)!

And check out the full list of average Olympic viewers on record…AFTER THE JUMP!

Spider-Man To Swing Right Past Katy Perry At The Box Office

Amazing Spider-Man battles Katy Perry: Part of Me

Everyone underestimated Spidi, and now Katy Perry is gonna pay!

This weekend, Katy Perry: Part of Me and Blake Lively's Savages will try to battle The Amazing Spider-Man in theaters … but box office experts say it's going to be a slaughtering!

The record breaking comic flick is projected to make $125 million to $140 million by Sunday. Now, because of Andrew Garfield's success, Katy's concert-flick and Savages are both expected to make a little more than $10 million.

Of course, these numbers aren't set in stone!

Anyone who has seen KatyKat's movie knows she never gives up — even when she's up against a super hero!

Cars Land Welcomes Record Breaking Attendance At Disney California Adventure!

Filed under: Disney

Vroom Vroom!!!

Disney California Adventure welcomed a massive 43,000 visitors to their grand opening of Cars Land — the 12 acre, breathtaking mini-park within a park.

And on Sunday, reports say the attendance list grew to 45,000!!! That's A LOT of sweaty glistening Minnie Mouse ears!!

Needless to say, we think they're makin' their $1.1 billion back in no time! (Why did they raise ticket prices again? Ha!)

Of course, just because everything was new and shiny didn't mean it was all kink-free! Radiator Springs Racers was loved so much, it actually broke down TWICE on Friday, causing the wait-time to escalate to 5.5 hours at one point!!!

But apparently that's normal when you're dealing with a brand new ride (and massive lines of riders craving its adventure)!

Still, even with long waits, visitors are leaving DCA and Disneyland with the biggest smiles yet!

MAGICAL! MAGICAL!!!

We might have to find our way over there soon… send us some tickets, Mickey! Ha! ;)
