"Wordplay" brings in the dough

Posted on Sun, Jul 23, 2006 at 11:05 AM

We're told that "Wordplay," the documentary about crossword puzzle competition featuring Arkansas's Vic Fleming and Former President Bill Clinton, has moved up to No. 41 on the all-time revenue producing documentaries.

That woudl rate quite an accomplishment for a low-budget film that some say may earn an Oscar nom. "Wordplay," which is showing locally at Market Street Cinema, has pulled in $2 million in just a few weeks, and it's said the film may work its way into the top 25 before its run end. It's picking up more theaters to screen in weekly.

The No. 1 all-time documentary is "Fahrenheit 9/11" with $119.2 milion; followed by "March of Penguins" with $77.4 million, "Bowling for Columbine" at $21.5 million and "An Inconvenient Truth" at $17.8 million, which is still in wide circulation and also showing at Market Street Cinema.
