Analysts are saying that Grand Theft Auto IV's April 29 release could interfere with the May 2 release of the Iron Man film as the demographics overlap.
Film industry folks blamed the Halo 3 release last fall for a slump in ticket sales. Halo 3 raked in $300 million in it's first week and due to the fact that GTA IV is multi-platform and more people now own a next-gen console, some are saying the new trek back to Liberty City will be even more lucrative.
If you've been paying attention, you should know that Rockstar is saying the game will take 100 hours to finish. So, if you buy it at 12:01am on April 29 and play it through without stopping, you could make the 4:15am screening of Iron Man on Saturday, May 3. So, we're not expecting the opening weekend to be effected at all here at TheFeed.
