The New York Post is reporting (in a story I can't find online) that the Broadway debut of Julia Roberts has already sold $7 million in advance ticket sales. If the production of "Three Days Of Rain" wasn't so short, she'd probably sell $20 mil or so.
And unnoticed at the box office is "Fun With Dick & Jane." A forgettable Jim Carrey vehicle that got almost no attention and even fewer good reviews, it hit $95 million at the box office and will easily hit $120 mil or so. These people get paid huge amounts of money...and they're worth every penny.
