The Two Towers Last Major Opening
February 21st, 2003
On Saturday February 22nd, The Two Towers opens in Japan, its last opening in an major international market. Already at over $800 million worldwide it has a chance of crossing the $1 billion mark, only the second film to reach that mark. The Two Towers could make $100 million in Japan alone, and is still in the top 10 in many key international markets like Italy, U.K., South Korea, Germany and Australia.
Currently the 8th film on the all-time Domestic Box Office, The Two Towers should beat Forest Gump for 7th spot before its run ends. And internationally the news is even better with second place a real possibility. Opening weekend in Japan should propel The Two Towers past both Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace and Independence Day into 5th place.
