There's Brokie anniversary, and then there's BetterMostian anniversary. They're related, but different, and for me are separated by more than three months.




My BetterMost anniversary: March 30, 2006.

Yup!  12/6/2005 was the NYC premier of Brokeback Mountain.

Six years ago today.

And it's still making headlines!


Here's The Top Grossing Venice Golden Lion Winners

by Peter Knegt

indieWIRE has a new weekend feature: A retrospective box office chart, based on a debuting indie release or a current event on the international film scene. Today, iW is taking a look at the track record of Venice Film Festival's Golden Lion winners, in honor of the ongoing edition of the festival.

Listed below are the top 10 grossing winners of the Golden Lion, which is a juried prize handed out to the best feature film at the festival. For those currently in competition at the festival, it suggests winning the top prize doesn't exact translate into cash money: Only two winners have ever grossed over $15 million dollars.

Ang Lee's "Brokeback Mountain" is far and away the top grossing Golden Lion winner, taking in $83 million back in 2005 (or $101.3 million if adjusted for 2011 inflation).

Well, the date is up for debate!

The film was actually first shown in the US at the Telluride film festival, on September 3, right after Venice. 

I'll admit the NYC 'premiere' was 12/6/05, but that was for the stars and the press.  That's where the cast were all photographed.  Probably an invitation-only event. 

The 'opening', however, was on Friday, 12/9/05, when the public was invited, at least in NYC, LA and SF.  To me, that's when 'Brokies' were born!

IMDb considers the 'release' date to be 12/16/05, when it was released wider.  That's when I became a Brokie!
