If the iPhone 5 was a Movie

Apple sold 5 million iPhones the first weekend.

Assuming that the three models averaged out to a ticket price of $749, (that's the price of the unlocked 32GB model, which should be close to what Apple gets from the cell phone carriers too.)  That would be $3.7 billion for the opening weekend of "iPhone 5: the Movie"*.

According to Wikipedia, and adding up the numbers, the top 10 worldwide opening movies since 2002** combined would be about the same $3.7 billion.  Nice.

* Though I kinda hope they'd name it "iPhone V: 4 Inches of Retina".  #iphone5themovie

** I doubt any older movies would be in that particular not-adjusted-for-inflation list.
