A Big Weekend In Entertainment. Maybe the Biggest in its History

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 broke entertainment records with sales upward of $550 million within the first five days of its release. The subsequent weekend, Twilight: New Moon opened up at the box office with another record smashing cume estimated north of 100 million in its midnight screening alone. Together these two IPs grossed the highest 5 day in entertainment history that includes books, movies, music and video games. This won’t change the slump that has been felt in the industry since the WGA and threatened SAG strikes now almost two years ago, but it may wake up some sleepy-headed types who had been packing up their bags, and get them to think twice.
