Millennium Actress Rankings

Millennium Actress brings in in $25 000 in first week, and garners mention in Wall Street Journal.

Friday's Wall Street Journal ran a short blurb about Millennium Actress on page 94. The blurb compares Millennium Actress to Dreamworks' recent box office failure Sinbad : "Millennium Actress " is literally worlds away from the $70 million pirate flick: It was made in Japan, its cost was small, the promotion minimal -- and the reviews generally rosy.

The blurb goes on to mention that the movie was acquired for $1 million, and that it is being presented in theatres subtitled only, as no dub was produced.

Over the weekend Millennium Actress, which is only being shown in 6 theatres, brought in $7000, adding to the roughly $18 000 that it made on its first weekend and the roughly $7 000 it made during the week.

Dreamworks is expecting positive reviews from the limited theatrical release to boost sales of the DVD, due out at the end of October.

Thanks to Rogerhipp for pointing out the WSJ article.
