Impressive, but NOT surprising! This movie looks fantastic!!!
After we saw the trailer for The Descendants last month (above), we were thinking this George Clooney movie had Oscar written all over it!
Now, it looks the movie also has $$$$ written all over it, because Descendants opened in only 29 theaters over the weekend and it grossed $1.2 million! Wowsa!
Here's what Fox Searchlight's executive vice president Sheila DeLoach had to say about it:
"The positive reviews have certainly sparked the interest of the sophisticated adult audience, which is why they came out in droves this weekend. I think their reaction was, 'We’ve finally got a good picture we can go see.' It’s a quality adult film, and there really hasn’t been anything like that in a dismal fall."
Sounds great! And given the fact the movie is going to open in 425 theaters on Wednesday, we have a feeling it's going to make A LOT more money over the long Thanksgiving weekend!!!!
What do U think? Will U be going to see The Descendants???
