It’s been savaged by critics and attacked from all sides, but Knowing, the new sci-fi film from genre master Alex Proyas is the number one movie in America. We nerds still have a little mojo.
The movie earned nearly $25 million to capture the number one slot ahead of the hilarious new comedy I Love You, Man and even further ahead of the new Julia Roberts/Clive Owen spy flick Duplicity. Granted $25 million isn’t exactly a world beating box office number, but it’s respectable, in March, for a movie that hasn’t exactly received Watchmen level advertising.
