    Do they consider this is the Highest-Earning release because the price of a ticket is higher too, making it maybe just a mediocre opening?

    It's more than just the ticket prices going up. Movies can now be opened in twice as many theaters as they could 5 years ago, due to the conversion to digital projection. Film prints were extremely expensive ($5K + per print) and didn't last forever (approx 6 months per print) so folms would usually open in fewer theaters and then additional prints would be made if the film turned into a blockbuster. Small towns would usually not get firts run films until 2-3 weeks after initial opening. So any information about 'biggest opening week' is only comparable to teh last 3-4 years at best.
