'Penguins' film is resonant
There was the post several weeks ago entitled Creating a billion dollar idea. It asked the question, "Is there a new franchise that you could start and publish on the Web?" This article shows that one possible answer to that question is penguins:
'Penguins' film poised to be No. 2 U.S. documentary
From the article: "Warner Independent Pictures on Friday more than doubled the number of theaters playing its nature movie 'March of the Penguins,' boosting the film's chance at becoming the No. 2 documentary of all time at U.S. box offices.
The move puts the Antarctic adventure 'Penguins' in 1,867 theaters in the United States and Canada this weekend, up from 778 one week ago, according to boxofficemojo.com, which monitors box-office earnings.
The film, which follows a pack of Emperor Penguins during an arduous mating season, had grossed $18.4 million through Wednesday and was poised to surpass the $21.6 million for Michael Moore's anti-gun documentary 'Bowling For Columbine.'"
