Any idea on what the budget for the re-release was?

It def. helps that 3D movies cost about 2 bucks more than normal movie tickets, but either way, thats great!

IT'S AN OUTRAGE!

It should've done better then that. Maybe some people didn't WANT to see the original TS, but just TS2. I'm thinking they should've released them individually after all.

Well, it's no wonder! Why wouldn't anyone go to this?
And why doesn't IMDb list this on their front page?

I think it is the length that may be preventing some... And not just for kids who can't sit for that long. Even if they are adults, they have to take over 3 hours out of their schedule to be able to go.

I KNEW that releasing them together would be a bad idea box-office wise!

Saw it, Loved it, Will recommend it to everyone.

I don't see why people are in shock that it didn't do better. Third place is pretty damn good for any rerelease let alone a double feature.

They're currently being beat by Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs (good film) and Zombieland (what the heck?)

Really? That's pretty good. No idea why everyone's in shock and horror.

I need to actually go and SEE Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, to see if it deserves to be ahead of this. It might be better than I think.

I'm not sure about the veracity of this, but I heard the re-release budget was 10 million. Not sure it that includes marketing or not.
