'F9/11' sets new documentary mark, tops $100 million
`Fahrenheit 9/11' sets new documentary mark, topping $100 million

DAVID GERMAIN, AP Movie Writer
Sunday, July 25, 2004

(07-25) 11:29 PDT LOS ANGELES (AP) --

Michael Moore joined the $100 million club as his political assault "Fahrenheit 9/11" became the first documentary ever to top that mark at the domestic box office.

"Fahrenheit 9/11," Moore's condemnation of President Bush's actions regarding the Sept. 11 attacks, had a weekend haul of $5 million to lift its total to $103.35 million since opening in late June.

"The American people have not been given the whole story about these last three years and they don't feel they've been given the truth from the White House," Moore said Sunday. "So they've gone to the movie theaters to look for the truth and to begin the important discussion and debate that needs to take place in this country."
edit ...

Moore said he had hoped to have "Fahrenheit 9/11" out on DVD before the November election, but that the film could continue to play in theaters through year's end and into 2005.

"So I don't know really what that means now in terms of the DVD," Moore said.

2. Good thing he didn't piss off the GOP or the RW media
Or it wouldn't have done nearly so well.

3. So how many moviegoers does that translate into?
Does the industry have some standard rule of thumb that estimates repeat viewers?

6. Why play F 9/11 in theaters after Nov. 2? Get the DVD out!
What's the point of showing this after the election?

I say get the DVD out in September or October.

How about releasing to video (rent/buy) the day * accepts his nomination?
