Opening days indicate initial level of interest, and to really get a handle on local interest with different release paterns, you need to look at the theater average. Here are the averages I note as telling:
An Inconvenient Truth
Opening Day Theatre Average: $19,749
2nd Day Theatre Average: $11,139
X-Men: The Last Stand
Opening Day Theatre Average: $11,951
My Big Fat Greek Wedding's Opening Weekend average was in the $5,000-$6,000 Range. I really don't want to see mutants this weekend, I'd rather see Glaciers I think. Fighting one's invading Europe and Canada even, lol.
And for every single one of you bloviating bloggers who have NOT seen it – and yet feel it's worth the pixels to trash Gore and cry Socialism! – proving you are really comfy being ignorant – THANK YOU and please promise to keep your previewing thoughts up for posterity. So your dear readers understand JUST where you are coming from.
And our fearless feckless leader – What does he say to his chance to "engage the controversy" …
WASHINGTON (AP) — Is President Bush likely to see Al Gore's documentary about global warming?
"Doubt it," Bush said coolly Monday.
