Despite a modest $34.4 million theatrical run, Eternal Sunshine reportedly sold over 600,000 units on Tuesday alone. The Jim Carrey vehicle cost an estimated $20 million to make. The Alamo has a far deeper hole to climb out of. It carried a $100 million plus budget yet grossed just $22.4 million this past spring—making it memorable as one of the biggest bombs of the year.
Walking Tall also hit DVD this week. It's the last of April's vengeance/fighting back-themed movies to reach home video following Kill Bill Vol. 2, The Punisher and Man on Fire. Dwayne Johnson's third outing as leading man racked up $46.3 million in theaters.
