1.3 Million in the Philippines? Really?

Speaking of, some rich bastard here in the Philippines rented the whole cinema for his family and relatives so they could watch the Avengers.

Money in the bank, lol.
superotherside - 4/26/2012, 9:21 AM


I hope it makes billions. Like maybe even 20 billion or something so Marvel will be happy to take that money and buy their characters from the other studios.
superotherside - 4/26/2012, 9:22 AM
But I doubt that will happen. Still I can hope... right?
