Bloggers on United 93

Allah's doing a round-up of reaction to the movie, which performed "solidly" this weekend, placing second at the box office:

The first major motion picture about the Sept. 11, 2001, Islamic terrorist attack on America, Universal Pictures' United 93, opened to a solid estimated $11.6 million at 1,795 sites, comparable to Syriana's first wide weekend. Writer-director Paul Greengrass' $15 million drama was not rejected by moviegoers as had been feared, but its number was low in relation to the raft of press coverage.

"The opening weekend's attendance was excellent," said Nikki Rocco, Universal's head of distribution. "This is an adult crowd and not a Friday night teenage crowd. The American public has responded that it's not 'too soon.' The filmmakers came from a place of humanity and respect and told a story that honors bravery."

According to Universal's exit polling, adults over 30 years old comprised 71 percent of the audience, 52 percent were female and the top two reasons people saw the movie were its story and that it was about Sept. 11—both listed by 63 percent of those polled.
