A Tale of Two Movies

It was the best of box office receipts, it was the worst of box office receipts.

From the Yahoo! Movies weekend box office rankings:
This Wk Last WkTitleWeekend Gross Cumulative GrossRlseWks# ofTheaters
21-Good Night, And Good Luck.$421,446$421,446111
2218Oliver Twist$411,790$1,715,3983779

Especially striking is the "number of theaters" column.

I suppose what this tells us is that either people really don't like pedophiliac rapists, or that people are not interested in Dickens. Take your pick. Oh, and that George Clooney still has his box office mojo.
