Research In Motion ( RIMM) is seeing heavy options volume ahead of its earnings report after the closing bell Thursday.

The average full-day volume for March calls was 50,000 contracts, but RIMM posted 74,000 about halfway through Thursday's session, an increase of 150%, according to OptionMonster's real-time tracking systems.
