I don't normally take time out to comment on box office earnings, but I had to make a little victory dance on hearing the news that BORAT had topped the US box office. This is amazing when you consider that it only opened in a reduced 837 screens after the studio got worried that no-one had heard of Borat and/or that Americans might take offence. Well, it appears that our American chums LOVE Borat. The movie earned a whole $7million more than its nearest rival, the execrably banal SANTA CLAUSE 3: THE ESCAPE CLAUSE. The trouncing is even more extreme when you consider that BORAT opened on 837 screens to SANTA CLAUSE 3's 3,458 screens. That's a per screen average of $31,607 for BORAT versus a measly $5,640 for Tim Allen. What I suspect is that cineplex owners packed in the BORAT screenings - running day and night - to satisfy demand. Not only is BORAT raking in the proverbial phat cash but it's also establishing itself as a modern classic (horrible term, I know). It ranks at 116 in the IMDB Top 250 movies of all time. Looks like Borat is saved from being execute for some to come!
Please help me convince Alan to see Borat instead of Saw III lolReplyDelete
