Mailvox: Keeping track

A few of you have asked about where you can find out how The Passion of the Christ is doing at the box office. The answer is mind-bogglingly well. $64 million in three days, with a per-screen average almost seven times that of this week’s second most succesful movie. To put that $64 million in perspective, The Return of the King has done less than six times the business, $362 million, in 73 days.

Not bad for two movies in which Hollywood had little interest. I imagine the Narnia movies will be the next big “surprise”.
