Or... not really, I made that up. But, if King Kong's financial success was one of the reasons why it was considered a frontrunner for a nomination then that can go out the window right about ...now. It grossed $14.4mil on Friday. That's a third less than Narnia last weekend and it'll need to get a huge boost on Saturday to even get to $50mil for the Fri-Sun segment of it's opening. So shocking - although it's it's own fault. A three remake of a movie about a giant gorilla? And it's not even as good as everyone is saying.
But in lighter news, Brokeback Mountain made the Top 10 on Friday with $.7mil! It should get to $2.5mil by the end of the weekend and have a PSA of over $30,000. That's excellent. And it's only showing on 69 screens. Brilliant!
