Fifty Shades Of Grey Grosses $266M

Fifty Shades Of Grey is proving to be a monster hit, particularly overseas where it grossed $172M in its opening weekend. Conservative sites are closely tracking the film’s performance, both because of its perverted subject matter and because real Americans spent the weekend seeing American Sniper for the third time. Or something. American Sniper, unsurprisingly, is not so popular overseas and in six weeks the film has grossed $393M worldwide, the vast majority of which is domestic admissions.
