Waiting for 'Superman', the documentary directed by Davis Guggenheim about problems in the public school system and how to fix them, had a limited release October 8 and is now rolling out nationally. Last weekend the movie played in 182 theaters, was #18 and had ticket sales of $4,081 per show, which put it behind only the top two films, Jackass 3-D and Red. It's been lauded by many critics. Harvey Weinstein, who has nothing to do with the production, predicted it will win an Oscar.
The tie-in book is doing very nicely, too: this Sunday Waiting for 'Superman': How We Can Save America's Failing Public Schools..., hits #1 on the New York Times bestseller list!
