Its only a poor assumption that assumes all of the MI4 revenues should be in the HMM Sun-Sat week and that it should be larger building off some unknown base of sales.
Some of MI4 release week Nielsen Videoscan units fall into the second week of its sales and those numbers were't that large either because nothing big was released in that week either and it had only a modest $67 M TBO as well.
MI4 was the only significant release in a span of 3 or 4 weeks so its specific impact got hidden somewhat in the reported weekly revenue numbers.
It was a poor assumption by you that by posting The-Numbers data for MI4, it would add more credibility to your argument.
And again, you're leaning on that Sunday offset much too hard. You're only hurting yourself when you get into the habit of sweeping any discrepancies or unexplainable events under that rug, no matter how implausible they may be.
