Borat Update...

The 9:20pm showing of Borat at AMC Newport on the Levee was completely sold out. And it's a huge theater. This should bode well for the overall box office tally... It will be interesting to see if Borat's paltry 1000 837 screens can compete with the The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause and Flushed Away opening in a staggering 3,458 and 3,707 theaters, respectively.

Barely got into the sold-out 8:10 showing at the Levee last night. Borat absolutely delivered on the hype...

As far as box office, this link seems to show Borat firmly in the lead (with only 837 screens):

Mr Egg,

Thanks for the link! I thought the movie was very funny as well.

Although, in my opinion, the Borat bits from Ali G were stronger.
