Zombieland” top destination at box office

Drew Barrymore’s directing debut, “Whip It,” and documentary filmmaker Michael Moore’s “Capitalism: A Love Story” each reported about $4.9 million in ticket sales.”Capitalism” played in almost twice as many theaters as “Whip It,” which had been expected to open in the high-single-digit millions ahead of the Gervais comedy.The article claims the movie “Whip It” that tied for seventh place with “Capitalism..” played in half as many theaters as the Michael Moore pick though the opposite was true.My questions is if anyone is going to fixed this error and notify the outlets you sent the story to? why does it take so long to correct an obvious error such as this?SeanSeveral readers pointed this out. We corrected: GBU Editor
