I never said it did. I am just saying the extra day does give trek a mathematical advantage. It actually may be a disadvantage on sites that only use the 3 day comparison because WHICH three days do they use? Fri-Sun will eliminate OPENING DAY!!! While a Thurs-Sat will eliminate a huge weekend market!!!

Per day yes, but what if X-men had more screens, therefore more seats available? Doesn't seem fair. It's not a true comparison in many ways. If ALL things were equal, screens and seats available and number of showings, then that would be a true comparison, in my opinion.
