Wallace and Gromit Still Dominate Theaters

October 13th, 2005

Wallace & Gromit remain the wide release champions this weekend, gaining an extra 11 theaters to play in an impressive 3,656 locations. The Fog is the widest new release, opening in a very respectable 2,972 venues. With the market still crowded, Elizabethtown (2,517 theaters) and, in particular, Domino (2,223) both miss out a little on the widest possible distribution.
