I went to a showing in Green Bay. It's the home of Middle America and my theater was packed. I expected a dead theater but got the exact opposite. I expect good returns on this film.

The funny thing about seeing it in Green Bay is that the city is right next to Fon Du Lac. Everytime the city was mentioned the crowd gave a big cheer. Even I was clapping with applause. An awesome moment.

now over $40 mil worldwide.

it got back in the top 10 this past weekend though it actually performed poorer.

perhaps Oscar Sunday will give it a boost?

that was the first i noticed that the budget was $25 mil.
I am Torgo. I take care of the place while the Master is away.

Not to mention, currently, the lowest grossing of the BP nominees domestically.

I mean, it's still kicking some considerable box office ass... but what the fuck? This was pretty much toe-to-toe with No Country as far as hype went going into the Oscars, and it couldn't even do Michael Clayton business? Did people even know Michael Clayton was nominated?
Maybe every day is Saturday morning.
