I think Fox successfully created a lot more advance buzz for Borat before it opened with various appearances... Universal hasn't really done

So I think it's guaranteed to bring in a good percentage of those who liked Borat... but not necessarily opening week, just because it's in more theaters. Bruno isn't the kind of character who'll play everywhere like Borat did.

holy crap!   MiyazakiFan on Jul 02, 14:25

BRUNO's 2700+ will be higher than what BORAT had at its widest release 2611. {nm}   Antibody on Jul 02, 14:32

Didn't we learn anything from the JOnas Bros. movie? (Not talk about you specifically) {nm}   secretstalker on Jul 02, 15:28

Huh? {nm}   jsnruf on Jul 02, 15:58

Because it opened in twice as many theaters as Miley's movie, a lot of people (including me) assumed it would open bigger. {nm}   secretstalker on Jul 02, 17:35

But Borat and Bruno are the same guy. Miley may have an alternate persona, but it's not the Jonas Brothers. {nm}   warcraft86 on Jul 02, 17:39

I very much agree with this. Bruno seems WAY more polarizing. {nm}   Qale on Jul 02, 19:01

It wasn't an assurance of good performance, but rather a theatre count comparison for like films.   ty97 on Jul 02, 18:04

This schedule might have changed, but it's the only thing I could find. Doesn't look like much.   MoonlightJellyfish on Jul 02, 21:06

I would have guessed 3000+ for BRUNO. I've seen a lot of TV spots for it, and BORAT had many fans. {nm}   BelizeIt on Jul 02, 22:36
