Borat beats Santa Claus

In America Sacha Baron Cohen's latest film (Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakstan) was pulled from a nationwide release to only 837 theatres due to a poor 'tracking survey' and worry that the American public wouldn't get the film.

Meanwhile Disney's The Santa Claus 3 was released on 3, 458 screens across America and was odds on favourites to be this weeks Big Box Office Hit!

Needless to say whilst Santa Clause 3 took $20 million ($5,780 per screen) it still managed to somehow be eclipsed to the number one spot by Borat which took $26.1 million (or an amazing $31,500 per screen)! Borat is now scheduled to enter many more cinemas in the coming week and is expected to hold on to that coveted #1 spot.

In other movie news, IMDB posted my review of the forthcoming Tenacious D movie this afternoon. It was basically a copy of the write-up I did for my LiveJournal but still, it's nice to see it on a serious film site! :)
