As of yesterday, Juno had made $53,048,310. And yesterday it was also the #1 film with a $1.4 million gross from from just 1,925 theaters, beating the same-day tallies of National Treasure: Book of Secrets ($1.3 mil) and I Am Legend ($1.1 mil), which both played in nearly twice as many houses as Juno. At this rate, it appears almost certain that Juno will crest $100 million.
That’s a mindblower. I never would have called that in a million years. This is just a sweet and sharp little film. I wasn’t levitating after I first saw it in Toronto. I knew that I liked it because it was well-written and well-acted. I still know that. But for me, this makes two head-scratchers in a single night.
