The Great Debaters - Opening Day

Professor Tracey, WAOD Contributor

The Great Debaters had an excellent opening day at the box office on Christmas Day. The film earned a one day estimate of 3.6 million dollars in just 1,164 theaters. It finished sixth in the daily box office, holding it's own against movies in nearly double or triple the theaters. If the film averages that kind of money everyday until Monday, it will be a bondafide smash hit.

Shame on black folks that went out to see National Treasure: Book of Secrets or Alien vs. Predator: Requiem instead of The Great Debaters. All black folks with children that had to suffer through Alvin & the Chipmunks or The Waterhorse: Legend of the Deep on Christmas Day get a free pass!

Keep up the excellent support. If you saw the movie, make plans to see it again with someone else. If you have plans to see the film this wekend, recruit more people to go with you. On The Great Debaters website, they are giving away free posters to anyone that mails in 20 ticket stubs!
