Ascent Complete

Daily Box Office - Tuesday, January 17, 2006

It hasn't passed Munich yet, though with only $1.7 million to go and Oscar glory yet to come, I believe, as I predicted on Friday, that it's inevitable that it will. But Tuesday, Brokeback Mountain did something more remarkable: It won the day. That's right--no movie made more money at the box office Tuesday than Brokeback Mountain.

This just might have something to do with its sweep of four big awards at the Golden Globes Monday night. Still, to finish first for the day while playing in only 683 theatres, compared with 2,222 for weekend champ Glory Road, bodes well for my favorite cause of the season.

Have you seen Brokeback yet?
