Although I may not have liked “Inglourious Basterds” much, I was looking forward to it an awful lot. Apparently so were a LOT of other people. According to Variety Magazine, Inglourious Basterds pulled in an opening day of $14.3 million at the box office.
Now you may think that doesn’t sound like a LOT… but it really is.
Basterds just beat out District 9 for the second highest opening day box office results for an “R” rated movie (American Pie 2 still holds the record).
This is also the second highest opening for any Weinstein Co. production… a company that REALLY needed a profitable movie right about now.
