Sony Pictures Classics’ Capote is moving into 1,500 screens this Friday (2.3) to try and make a little moolah out of those five Oscar nominations, including Best Picture and Best Actor for Philip Seymour Hoffman. Originally released on 9.30.05, the highest number of screens for the upscale biopic was 348 (as of 1.20), resulting in earnings of $15 million so far. “There was a difficulty in getting a people to know who Truman Capote was,” SPC co-honcho Tom Bernard recently told Variety reporter Gabriel Snyder, “but [the Oscar nominations have] put us in the mainstream of American attention.” Did everyone read that? There was a “difficulty” with Average Joe’s not knowing who the most famous literary figure of the ’60s and ’70s was…a guy who was constantly on talk shows and in magazine articles and gossip columns. Here’s to the English teachers in America’s high schools. In Cold what? Good work, guys.
