After wrapping up an incredibly long 196-day run in the movie theaters, Sandra Bullock's true story film has managed to break a box office record. Oddly enough, it's a record previously held by an Adam Sandler flick.
It would be interesting to know how long most movies officially run, for comparison.
Most movies nowadays stay in theaters for less than 8 weeks. Over time we're seeing movies leave theater and the theater-to-dvd turnaround becoming shorter and shorter. This is mainly due to Hollywood realizing the money is in dvd sales and rentals. They make something like close to 50% of their revenue on dvd sales/rentals.
Sandra deserves everything she has coming to her. A gorgeous, multi-talented actress who you'd rarely find in the tabloids. Congrats on a new record!
It's a really great movie. One of the best I've seen in a while.
