You may think the record is meaningless, but watch the studio execs reactions to it. If this movie had flopped like some predicted, we wouldn't see another big risk taken on a movie like it for a while. Showing that people will pay extra to see a rehashed story in 3D only adds to the weight.

Now, the movie would need to hit $2.4bil to beat the adjusted-for-inflation number #1 spot of the 1939 Gone With the Wind release. It would need to hang on for about 20 more weeks to do that, and I'm not sure the fan base is there for that, no matter how many crazy websites I see.
