    Beating even An Inconvenient Truth and March of the Penguins?? Now that's saying something.

    Way to go Disney! I hope this means a long-lived series.

    As the article noted, most documentaries debut in limited release. "Earth" premiered nationwide.

    Still, $4 million ain't too shabby for any film on a Wednesday.

    Is it true that "Earth" is just the Discovery channel series "Planet Earth" whittled down and with a new voice over??

    Thanks disneytim! Ralph Garmin on KROQ just stated that it was the Discovery channel series. My question is why would Disney just basically re-hash something most people have seen on TV already???

    The LA Times acknowledged this in their review, but admitted that there is something to be said about seeing this footage on the big screen.

    They did say the voice overs were cheesy at times but I think this it what makes it a good film -- this is almost an homage to the original True Life Adventures.

    I am happy to see these numbers. Hopefully Disneynature won't be reluctant to release their next film, Oceans.

    Re: Disneynature's 'Earth' hits box-office green & a new record

    Well, that's good. I got worried, because one of the local reviewers wrote an angry review saying something along the lines of how Disney got cheap and if you've seen the BBC/Discover Channel special, you shouldn't go. The only way the local guy would take back what he said is if they had an IMAX version.

    And ever since that review got publish in our city, attendence dropped like a rock thrown off of Victoria Falls at my theatre.
