CNN.com – These holidays have showed to us who is the Boss on movie theater, Twilight and Quantum Solace were on the top this season, other movies were sharing them the top like “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”, “Seven Pounds” and “Revolutionary Road”.
By some measures, the season started November 7 with the release of “Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa,” an animated film that has made more than $118 million in its first 10 days. “Quantum of Solace” reinforced the holiday fever over the weekend, taking in $70.4 million — the biggest opening of a Bond film ever.
“Slum dog,” which opened Friday in limited release and goes wide November 27, may become a sleeper hit. Reviews have been excellent, with the film winning the audience award at the Toronto Film Festival.
The attention has surprised star Dev Patel, “It’s been a roller coaster, to be honest. We’ve done so much press, so we haven’t been able to absorb it all in yet,” he told CNN.
Boyle said he was initially skeptical about making the film, “My agent sent the script and said, ‘It’s a film about “Who wants to be a Millionaire?” ‘And I thought who would want to make a film about ‘Who wants to be a Millionaire?’ “He said.
“[That’s] a fantastic film, and I really thought, ‘Well, I better read some of it at least to pay some respect,’ and I was just 10-15 pages in, I just knew I was going to make the film,” he told CNN.
