So we are in the middle on nowhere in Utah, nursing.
Sundance is near an end and OscarVille sings its siren song.
Box office, from the Blackberry, is neither great not horrible. The Oscar movies are strong, as The King’s Speech goes to the front of the pack this weekend, passing True Grit, though Grit still has a pretty unsurpassable $80m lead. Black Swan will probably pass $90m this weekend, just ahead of The Fighter on the day, but about $10m ahead domestically. By next weekend, Swan will pass The Social Network’s box office, the 4th film in the race to do so. Both The Fighter and The King’s Speech will probably get there by mid-Feb too.
And now, back to the Utah highways…
