    Yay…I’m gonna see it. Just need to find a babysitter and a way to sneak out of the house for 2 hours. 🙂

    I don’t think I would personally consider less than 1,000 theatres a wide release…especially since I have 4 movie theatres between me and the closest release.

    • sparkvark111 says:

      It opened in 726 theaters in the US today, but I think it will expand to 100-200 more next week, if it performs well. However, I do not think it will get much bigger than that. It should have a long run though, because of word or mouth and repeat views.

      600 screens is considered wide release.

    Ohhhhh my! The kissing scene: yet another reason to daydream of being Emma Watson’s co-star. She’s amazing!

    • KS987 says:

      Indeed. Every time I see Emma in a kissing scene it really makes me wish I was an actor so that I would have been the one kissing her instead. We’ll have to get used to it though, since she’s most likely going to have one in almost every movie she’s in from now on. 😛

  9. tabitoo says:

    I had to travel to the next town to see it a 45 minute drive but it was well worth it. I laughed, I cried, it was the best movie ever. I was not disappointed. Emma was Great, she showed excellent range. Logan was Greathe made me cry. Ezra was Great, he brought it hard. LOVED IT!

  10. Tia says:

    I’ve seen the film twice now. (its perkfection) and the previews STILL make me cry!

  11. Joyce says:

    I too have a theatre five minutes drive away from me, and had to get out of my actual area to see it. But it was well worth it. One of the best movies ever, it totally did the book justice! And Emma was fantastic.

  12. sparkvark111 says:

    It appears that the movie will make it to the #10 spot at the box office. The US weekend estimate for Oct 12-14 is $2,166,000 (726/$2,983) for a total of $6,151,000. The actual totals comes out Monday. 😀

    How Emma could ever convincingly be a “wallflower” escapes me though….

  14. Sparkle says:

    I am so exciting to see this movie!!!
    GO EMMA!

  15. Zoe says:

    It’s coming out on the 29th of November in Australia (just incase anyone was unsure). SO EXCITED AND IMPATIENT ASKDJFA

    • sparkvark111 says:

      Let everyone know to see this movie. It is a very good movie. Do not be misled by the trailer, it is not just for people in their teens or twenties. This is not a happy-go-luck teen movie or chick-flick. There are not only comedic parts, but there is also dramatic parts as well. Everyone that is able should see this movie. 🙂

  16. Celia says:

    Saw it!!!! Loved it!!! Amazing movie!!!!

  17. tabitoo says:

    Saw it Friday night and I hope I’ll get to see it again in the next week or so. I have a feeling that this movie is going to have a long run and it’ll probably be a while before it’s out on DVD. It’s as good if not better than everyone is saying it is. Cult Classic absolutely. 🙂
