Borat's #1 Box Office Success!

November 6, 2006

We're in complete support of Borat here, and supportive of definitely going to see it in theaters as soon as you can. Primarily because of how great of a movie it is, and also that you just can't miss seeing it in a theater full of everyone laughing. It's opening weekend was a smashing success, beating out both new family films Santa Clause 3 and Flushed Away. Interestingly, the headline news from a few weeks back stating that Santa Clause 3 is guaranteed to beat Borat, ended up being proven wrong.

According to Box Office Mojo's numbers on this past weekend, Borat drew in $26,375,000, compared to Santa Clause 3 at $20,000,000 and Flushed Away closely behind at $19,100,000. The best part is the comparison of per-theater earnings and the number of theaters for each film. Borat is only in 837 theaters, compared to Santa Clause 3's 3,458. Quite a difference, and yet Borat still took the #1 spot. Borat's earnings were ~$11,000 average per screen, while Santa Clause 3 earned only ~$2,000 average per screen.

Borat is definitely worth seeing and we suggest you catch it as soon as you can!
