Even the article your commenting on does not mention it. I have never seen any news station or article mention inflation or tickets sold.Don't they do that already? Every time I read an article about how much money a movie has brought in and they compare it to other movies, they generally state that inflation is included in the figures.
In case some people can't figure out why.... it is called sensationalism. Your news stations rely on your stupidity. You think wow this is the best selling movie ever! I figured this out when I was like ten, kinda sad for the rest of you....
I just spent 2 minutes googling to confirm what I thought was common knowledge. And ~~~drummmm roll~~~ its true.
