    Total as of Mar. 14, 2004: $264,041,000 (Estimate)
    + Overseas Gross: $8.2 million / Australia, New Zealand & Greece
    Distributor: Newmarket Release Date: February 25, 2004
    Running Time: 2 hrs. 6 min. Production Budget: $30 million
    MPAA Rating: R Est. Marketing Costs: $15 million

    19 days and at US$272mil for a film that ended up costing US$45mil to make.

    I tried going the day the movie came out, but the theatre was packed. I plan on seeing it in the threatre as soon as I get the spare time. I downloaded and watched the beginning... seems like I will enjoy it.

    That should be adding nicely to Mel's bank account.

    He took a gamble with his own money, $30 million or so, because no one would fund him. He deserves all the success he gets. I hope he makes a billion.

    I wouldn't be surprised that he's getting 50% of the profits.

    I saw the movie over the weekend. Haven't analyzed it much. One problem I had was with the nails throught the hands. It should have been through the wrists. Also, what the heck was that thing Judas saw under the bridge? As for a nordic woman being satan... I thought that was a guy . Oops. What was with the polgeria-baby?

    Has it ever occured to you that we cry more often and over smaller things simply because we are emotional creatures and prone to it, by the hand of nature, biology, & etc. ?
    Yes I do, but the level that many women take it is absolutely ridiculious! To the point it actually loses its charm.

    me and my ex are going to see it. Not for religious reasons, but because it's a really sad story about a guy who suffered a rebel's fate for disagreeing with authority.

    Plus, i wanna see if it's really that bad. I doubt from reviews of it that it is acutally that antisemitic. i've seen films with Jewish bad guys before, it doesn't bother me I bet Mel Gibson loves all this publicity he's getting, it will make more people want to go and see the film...

    I thought he was excellent in braveheart and I can't imagine him being antisemitic, he's such a hero awwwwww......

    Yeah. Others described it that way...ie difficult to tell the sex of the thing. Old Scratch always has had image problems!

    What was with the polgeria-baby?
    Some think that's symbolic of the Anti-Christ. As in while the true Christ is being killed, Satan has his false one at the ready. Watch Rosemary's Baby some time for another view on that.

    Mia in Rosemary's Baby
    Turman found a copy of The Graduate, and thought highly enough of the story that he made a movie he considered to be 90-percent faithful to the book.

    But Turman and director Mike Nichols made one key adaptation, changing the Braddocks from WASP-y blonde characters into a dark-haired, more ethnic-looking family.

    I'm glad someone shares my feelings! That was the scene that got to me most. We all know about Jesus' suffering; but what about his mother's suffering? That parallel editing where we see Mary fuss over her son when Jesus falls while he's playing and how frustrated she is compared to Jesus falling whilst carrying his own cross -and himself- to his death was truly heartbraking. I think that no love can be greater than a mother's love toward her children, and seeing Mary experiencing her son's pain was the saddest part of the movie for me. It was also touching because it showed the humane side of things, instead of "Mary Mother of God", and "Jesus Christ God Almighty"; they were simply mother and son; which was also the theme of the scene with Jesus building a table and his mother asking him to wash his hands before entering the house. Typical.

    It's not anti-semitic. It portrays the Pharisees in a bad light not all Jews, imo.
