The Vow Sets Another Box Office Record
02.15.12 by reelz
With such a successful weekend at the box office, it's no surprise that The Vow broke yet another record. The romantic drama first led the biggest non-holiday February weekend ever, making over $41.7 million, but then went ahead and followed the weekend with earning $11.6 million on Valentine's day. It has now been dubbed the highest earning mid-week Valentine's day box office movie. According to CNN Entertainment, The Vow has also become the best debut ever for producer Screen Gems.
The success of The Vow may be due to casting the king and queen (Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum) of romantic dramas. That pairing seems a sure fire way to tug the heart strings of audience members. The "based on a real life couple's experience with memory loss and love" angle doesn't hurt either.
Reelz had the opportunity to sit down with Krickitt and Kim Carpenter, the couple that inspired this story. Below is part one of the full story and tonight the second part will be aired at 5:30p ET / 2:30p PT on the Hollywood Dailies.
