Brokeback v. Narnia: DVDs Hit Stores Today

As reported to me by Citizenlink.org, two movies that could not be any different hit DVD store shelves today: Brokeback Mountain and The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. The figures clearly demonstrate which of these two movies stands out as the people’s choice for the best use of their entertainment dollars. Brokeback is estimated to have pulled in about $83 million nationwide. On the other hand, Narnia, earned over $290 million, more than three times the amount of the "gay cowboy movie." Worldwide saw an even greater difference: Brokeback made about $165 million whereas Narnia earned roughly four times that much at over $718 million. 83 v. 290; 165 v. 718. I say no contest. But even though people of all different cultures and countries and perspectives have responded more favorably to Narnia than Brokeback, here’s the question for ya: which film will receive more media exposure in the coming weeks? Keep your eyes pealed as you get exposed to the media hype around you and then report back here in the comments what you see.
