Box Office Update

The Black Swan DVD might be arriving soon, but the film is still hanging in at the box office. Three months (!!!) after release, the film still has the #15 spot on the charts and has just crossed the $105 million mark domestically. Overseas it’s doing even better, and should now have passed a further $150 million.

Last week Black Swan became 20th Century Fox’s highest grossing film of 2010, passing the new Narnia film. What makes this extra special is that it is the first time since Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon in 2000, that a film from a specialty division (in Black Swan’s case, Fox Searchlight) outgrossed everything from the parent studio.

Hopefully this means that we’ll be able to see a Black Swan 2: Electric Tutu before long 😉
