The story is too old to be commented.

I didn't contribute to any of that sadly. I really did want to see Black Swan in theaters but nobody wanted to go =(

King's Speech I'm not really in a RUSH (bazinga) to see.

I was never really interested in either film, but i think this puts both back in the running for best picture. Now the Acadamy cant be blamed for picking a movie that hardly made any money.

The trailer for Black Swan didn't interest you in the slightest? How is this possible.

Visually it looked cool, i just didnt understand what it was about. I honestly thought it was some book for high school kids adaptaions lol

I don't really understand what it's about either. I think that's mainly the reason I want to see it so badly.

Any fan of the thriller genre should definitely absolutely see Black Swan.

I'm half surprised it's made this much money. Good for it.

I thought it would be too artsy for it to perform well but I guess I was wrong. The Oscar buzz really helped it out big time though it looks like.

Not to mention Natalie Portman is in the news every 30 seconds these days.
