'Lone Survivor' causes cancellations of other screenings; Golden Globe winners

See also

"Lone Survivor" received wide release on Friday, Jan. 10 and became the surprise hit within mere hours; it won the box this weekend with a projected take of $38.5 million based upon Friday's ticket sales according to Variety; however, that estimate may be increased by as much as double due to the word of mouth praise the film has received. The demand for viewing has been so large that one theater in Texas cancelled their weekend showings of other films in order to accommodate the crowds according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The general manager of the The Grand Theatre 14 in Conroe, Texas confirmed the authenticity of a photo announcing the cancellations that has gone viral. "Lone Survivor did far more business than we expected it to and we did make room for it," he said.

The cancellation affected the screenings of other hit films including The Wolf of Wall Street, American Hustle, Grudge Match, Paranormal Activity, Anchorman 2 and other titles "due to the hit movie Lone Survivor."

This film is based upon the New York Times bestseller by former Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell who was the sole survivor of a covert mission by Seal Team 10.
