Brokeback Mountain outpaces other Best Picture

Brokeback Mountain outpaces other Best Picture

Ang Lee's film has highest domestic gross among five Best Picture nominees.

Expanding to 2,089 theaters over the weekend, Brokeback Mountain has grossed more money than any of the other four Academy Award nominees for Best Picture. As of Sunday, the film's domestic box office take totaled over $60 million, outperforming Capote ($18 million to date), Crash ($54 million final gross), Good Night, and Good Luck ($27 million to date), and Munich ($43 million to date).

Ang Lee's critically acclaimed film (which received eight Oscar nominations, including Best Picture and Best Director) has become Focus's top-grossing release of all time. "It is by popular demand that we have reached this widest point of national release, after opening nine weeks ago in only five theaters," said Jack Foley, president of theatrical distribution at Focus, in a statement. "We expect the film to remain in wide release across the country for weeks, indeed, months to come."

In just three weeks of international release, Brokeback has brought in nearly $40 million overseas, putting its worldwide gross on track to exceed $100 million later this week.
