Just wait the after the release in Europe... People there are just starving for BBM.  In France it will be January 18, 2 days after the Golden Globes.  If BBM gets some (I cannot imagine no Golden Globes at all) it will help not only overseas but also here in North America.  GO! GO! GO! BBM GO!

Take it for some payments overdue because, Schwarzenegger, Rocky, Dumb and Dumber.  I'll stop here, the list have no end.  Also, keep in mind:  Director from Taiwan, Composer from Argentine, Cinematographer from Mexico, Heath  is from Australia, the movie was filmed in Alberta, looking at the credits a part of the post production was done in Montreal (I might be wrong, but there were too much French-Canadian names).  Actually the whole film was all done in Canada BUT, the very short story came from Wyoming.  Did I mentioned Annie Proulx's family was originating from Quebec?  They moved to New-England and afterwards to Wyoming.  I'm wondering if Annie speaks French.  She was borned in USA, that's for sure.

If I recall, the ever-so-tiresome commentators on FOX said that BBM would never earn more than 25 M.  Let them be put to shame.

You said it right, tpe. Those in denial always can't face reality. 25M will be easy to grab.

Could we bet at least 50 millions after World release, Golden Globes and Oscar buzz?

Before it opened, $50 million domestic (US/Canada) would have been considered a huge hit. But with all the critical praise, the likelihood that it will dominate the Golden GLobes and Oscars, that would be now be disappointing. $75 million looks more like the goal. And $100 million isn't out of the question.

BBM is still on a roll at the cineplex.

Let it ride
'Brokeback Mountain’ is still on a roll at the cineplex. Can this horse be beat?


January 9, 2006
"Brokeback Mountain" continued its unlikely run at the box office last weekend, widening its presence at theaters and strengthening its position as the picture to catch in the Academy Awards race.

Ang Lee's cowboy love story wrangled $5.7 million from 483 locations, up from 214 theaters last week. The picture averaged $11,856 per site for the weekend, boosting its total gross to $22.4 million after 31 days.

And the $14 million "Brokeback" did all of that without help from the Golden Globes (the show doesn't take place until next Monday) or Oscar nominations (those don't come in until the end of January).

Perhaps most impressive about "Brokeback Mountain" is that the picture has proven it can play away from the coasts.

In the Salt Lake City area, one theater made headlines when it pulled "Brokeback Mountain" from its screens at the last minute. However, Salt Lake City residents still had a chance to see the movie, and many did — in two out of the three local theaters showing the film, "Brokeback" was the No. 1 draw.

Getting labeled as "that gay cowboy movie" seems to be a blessing and a curse for "Brokeback Mountain." It gave the picture distinction in a crowded market and aroused interest from art house crowds, even if it caused discomfort and giggles among mainstream audiences.

Focus Features is also finding ways to transcend "Brokeback's" limitations. Spurred on by rave reviews, early critics awards and plenty of hype from a compliant media, Focus has mounted a sterling platform release. The distributor has convinced many — including a target audience of women — that the movie is a universal tale of love and repression.

Focus plans to hike "Brokeback's" theater count to around 700 on Friday, ahead of Monday night's Golden Globe Awards, where the film is considered a leading contender in the best drama category.

"Brokeback's" would-be Oscar rivals, "Munich" and "Match Point," also opened wider last weekend, but to much less inspiring results.

Universal Pictures expanded "Munich" into wide release, where the picture met with an indifferent box office reception that won't help its Oscar cause.

Director Steven Spielberg's $70 million drama about Israel's retaliation against the Palestinian terrorist attack at the 1972 Munich Olympics logged $7.6 million at 1,485 theaters, raising its total to $22.4 million in 17 days.

By comparison, "A History of Violence" and "The Constant Gardener" — a pair of similarly toned thrillers — each did more than $8 million in their first weekends of wide release last fall. And that was with significantly fewer resources and a lower pedigree.

"Munich" is on track to become Spielberg's least popular picture since 1997's "Amistad." That film, another historical drama released in December, foundered at Oscar time.

Woody Allen, though, could see his best gross in five years with "Match Point," a foray into the thriller genre for the comedic writer-director. Of course, a peak gross for a Woody Allen picture is merely a fraction of one of Spielberg's low points.

DreamWorks lobbed "Match Point" into 304 venues, an increase of 296 theaters over last weekend, and notched $2.7 million, averaging a decent $8,912 per site. The distributor plans to move "Match Point" to more than 700 theaters on Jan. 20.

The last time the total gross for a Woody Allen picture reached eight digits was in 2000, with "Small Time Crooks."

 In fact I was excited to post this and forgotten to search if there is an existing forum  about the box office results.
 Thank you Chameau.

The only numbers available are about Box Office. DVD sales and rentals are not a part of the count, I'll try some Google but I'm not sure we could get some fresh numbers, BBM has been out of theaters for more than two years and is now presented only in art theaters, in this case it doesn't count.  If I ever find something relevant I'll post it here.  Cable TV doesn't count either for sure.

I thought I had seen somewhere (can't remember what site) a figure for a recent date (?) showing a worldwide gross somewhere in the $184Million range.  Does this sound reasonable, logical?  I'm wracking my memory, but sometimes I have an unexpected senior moment.  :s)

OK, from Wikipedia:

Brokeback Mountain's theatrical run lasted for 133 days and grossed $83,043,761 in North America and $95,000,000 abroad, adding up to a worldwide gross of more than $178 million

 &**)  Thanks.  Add in all the peripherals and WOW!  All the more reason to be so proud of Heath and Jake in their roles of Ennis and Jack. Some people have said 'not a blockbuster' but we know so differently.  They are just not able to read our hearts or understand how so many were touched so deeply, and for such a long time to come.  Thanks.    :clap: :clap:
