Al Gore has become a rather prolific statesman since his Vice-Presidency. Between Current.tv and the documentary An Inconvenient Truth, which details the global warming crisis in an informative and entertaining approach, he has become hardly the withering embarrassment you'd expect of most ex-White House '"leaders".
And even more surprisingly, Gore's documentary is actually drawing audiences!
According to Variety it "grossed a fantastic $365,787 at just four theaters in New York and L.A.; its $70,585 per play gross over three days is the highest average take for any pic this year, the highest average for any pic over Memorial Day weekend and the highest-ever average for a documentary."
Cume since its Wednesday opening is $489,336.
Paramount Classics will expand the heavily hyped Al Gore starrer to between 60 and 75 theaters in the top 10 markets next frame and continue to widen it throughout June.
