American Gangster is the #1 Movie in the Country!

The fact that I, and probably millions of other folks, got the opportunity to peep American Gangster on a crystal clear bootleg DVD weeks before the official November 2nd release didn’t deter everyone from actually heading out to the movies … because final figures released yesterday showed that the movie netted $43.6 million! This puts it at the 9th biggest opening ever for an R-rated film, and the 11th biggest November release ever. And not only that, but this is Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe’s biggest releases ever! And you KNOW how long those two have been in the game. This just goes to to show you that bootlegs can actually be a good thing, if viewed properly. They’re not meant to substitute the real thing, they’re meant to “hold you over” until the official release, complimenting the real thing. Good work America! Keep it up…
