Just read that Fox is projecting an Opening Day take of 42 to 45 million dollars, the largest first day box office in the recorded history of the entire Universe ever.

Initial reports have The Phantom Menace taking about 3 times the take of Titanic. Unfortunately, since the reviews are now out, it is highly unlikely that this would be the outcome. In fact, many are speculating that Phantom Menace won't even match up to Titanic's take.

I'd rather Star Wars was at the top than Titanic. At least SW doesn't cash in on the deaths of hundreds like Cameron did.

TV Guide insider, which I;m getting by e-mail for some unknown reason, is reporting that TPM made 7.7 million in the first six hours, and 45 million on the first day.
I saw the origanal "Titanic" on AMC a week or two ago. The scenes that showed the persers hold the lower class people below decks were in it, just like the new "Titanic". I think the film is called "A Night to Remember" or something like that.
For the most part the old Titanic movie is very different, and in my opinion better. Rather than concentrating on special effects or cliche filled romances it was about how people react and are affected by such a disaster.
