Yep, and not only are some people seeing it more than once because of that but they're paying twice the price they would have paid to see Titanic back in the late 90s. Inflation (and now the added cost of 3D) fucks these kinds of stats right in the asshole and the record is essentially meaningless unless you see it in context.

All Time Box Office Adjusted for Ticket Price Inflation
