The Sleeper Hit

File Under: Movie Talk

Have you heard what this year’s My Big Fat Greek Wedding is? A documentary about penguins! It’s called March of the Penguins, and it keeps climbing up the box office chart. Last week, it hit number 10 on the box office chart. With about an extra thousand theaters this weekend, the penguins shuffled their way up to #6. And it’s already pulled in an estimated $26.4 million dollars domestically, and another $15.5 internationally!

And you know what this 80 minute documentary is about? The breeding rituals of the Emperor Penguin.

People won’t see action movies, but they’ll see a documentary about the penguin’s perilous journey to, um, *cough* mate? I guess you can never predict the mind of a movie goer!
