Projections: 2012 Will Slay the Box Office


If all goes as planned, Roland Emmerich's disaster-epic 2012 will blow up, burn down and all together wreck the box office this weekend. Early projections have the movie making $55 million domestically and another $90 million internationally this weekend. It's already brought in $7.2 million from people in Belgium, France, Poland and Thailand who were eager to take in some global annihilation. Globally, 2012 will be on about 16,500 screens in 105 countries, proving that the one thing everyone on earth can agree on is the awesomeness of its destruction.
