Leonardo DiCaprio's statement about the state of the environment opens Friday nationwide, a week after successful opening in New York and Los Angeles. The filmmakers sent a celebratory press release about the opening weekend today.
"Each theater which took a chance on running this provocative film took in more revenue than its competitors did running Superbad, the box office leader which took in $11,211 per screen. And it's a documentary! It even beat out the opening debut of Michael Moore's Sicko, which did amazingly well when it opened with a weekend take of $10,200 per screen. It beats hands down this summers blockbuster hit Transformers which opened with an average of $2,194 per screen," film critic Arthur Kanegis, who reviewed the film for Scene4 magazine, wrote.
