Final Fantasy Wednesday Gross
Sony's computer-animated "Final Fantasy: TSW'' bowed Wednesday in 2,649 theaters amid reviews giving
uniformly high marks to its computer-generated look and generally low grades to its plodding storyline. But marketing
and distribution president Jeff Blake said a first-day gross of $5 million has the studio expecting big things from ``Final
Fantasy's'' first weekend.
Internet ticketer Fandango said ``Final Fantasy'' represented
more than 70% of its ticket sales on Wednesday. Most observers
expect super-realistic picture to finish the weekend on top of
the box office chart. It's expected to gross between $30 - 40 million.
