Good morning! Mighty chilly here in central Minnesota today. Currently we sit at 16 below zero. I for one am thrilled that I do not have to go out in the cold today… although I am considering a trip to the library.
In this mornings paper I learned that 50 Shades of Grey busted up box office records for the weekend with a whopping $94.4 million opening weekend. The 4th biggest rated R move opening in history!
I so did not see that coming…
While I have not read the book nor do I plan to, I admit I was curious about how it would do at the box office. From what my friends have told me about the book, they thought (as did I), it would be pretty hard to put that into a theater.
Yet.. they did.
So color that 50 Shades of “cha-ching”.
I am curious now,
Have you read the book, seen the movie, or both?
How did the movie compare to the book?
If you have not seen the movie do you plan to?
Does the huge success of the movie surprise you at all?
Last night I finished an excellent read, An Appetite for Violets, which I can not wait to rave about. Today I think I will be able to finish American Sniper on audio and tonight will be perfect for a blanket, hot tea, and a good read.
