Well, amend this. Either the original reports were erroneous, or the film did a nose-dive yesterday, because the estimate is now $225,000, for a $55,000 rather than $80,000 average. Still quite solid, and well above the disaster the film might have been, given reviews -- but no longer in the realm where the success level by itself could propel the film to awards consideration.
