More than 1,500 New Yorkers gathered today in Manhattan to mourn the death of a 32 year-old gay man, who was shot down on Friday just blocks away from the historic Stonewall Inn in an apparent act of anti-gay bias.
MILK opened in very limited release over the holiday weekend -- only 36 screens -- but the Harvey Milk biopic still managed to make it into the Top 10 highest-grossing films within the five-day Thanksgiving frame.
The holiday romantic comedy Four Christmases brought in $46.7 million over five days, while the Baz Luhrmann epic Australia earned $20 million. Impressive, right? But if you look closer, those numbers only equal out to $3,310 and $2,642 per screen, respectively.
Now do you have perspective?
