CORRECTED: The news isn't fantastic for anyone hoping to see "Blonde Ambition" take over a weekend box office. For it's first week, it won't get much of chance.
On Dec. 21, it will hit eight theaters in Texas (near Dallas), because that's the home state of its stars, Jessica Simpson and Luke Wilson. Check out this article on People.com for more information. Will it ultimately get a wide release? "Once it opens, we'll assess how well it did," said publicist Elizabeth Wolfe.
Sony will be releasing the flick on DVD on Jan. 22, 2008, according to its website. Click here for more info. (From personal experience, Amazon.com can be a bit sketchy on dates, sometimes.)
All the news isn't so grim for Millennium Films, though, which backed the independent project.
Another of its Shreveport-based flicks, "Mad Money," stands to rake in some weekend coin when it opens nationally in theaters Jan. 18, 2008. The trailer is pretty fun. Stars Diane Keaton, Queen Latifah, Katie Holmes, and Ted Danson.
"Cloverfield" will come out Jan. 18, too, so "Mad Money" will have a tough go of it. But January always delivers box office surprises.
