And over at Post-Darwinist, Denyse O'Leary has an update on the film's Canadian launch coming up on June 27th.
Considering the problems that dogged the production of Expelled (claims that key Darwinists were tricked into taking part, the ejection of "raving atheist" PZ Myers from a showing, accusations of copyright violation (not really substantiated), release delayed from February to April, (and of course, Ono's lawsuit), it is surprising that the film is even out of the can, let alone that it is #5 in political documentaries.
O'Leary is right, it is amazing that a documentary film has made over $7 million and at the end of May was still showing in almost a hundred theaters. Most documentaries never make it into that many theaters let alone open nationwide on over 1000 screens. As the film goes international, starting in Canada, it will be interesting to see the Darwinists squirm all over again.
