Bulgarian Box Office Smash!
From Ringer Skycycle:
I just want you guys to know that TTT has reigned supreme ever since it was released in Bulgaria on January the 10th. Up to January the 26th (17 days) it has grossed exactly 501,144 Bulgarian Levs, which equals around $280,000, which ranks it the second highest grossing film in its first two weeks, beaten only by Titanic. TTT launched with a pretty good $110,000 in its first three days – just for comparison, FOTR finished with $325,000 in Bulgaria after almost 4 months of screening, Harry Potter and The Sorcerer’s Stone ended up with close to $300,000 and The Chamber of Secrets, which is currently in its 8th week of screening has close to $170,000. All of this adds up for an expectation that TTT will pass the $500,000 in the next 5 or six weeks, as it is yet to be launched in several of the country’s big cities in the middle of February…Posted in Old Special Reports on February 2, 2003 by Tookish
