While the broader box office is way down year-to-year, three Oscar-nominated specialty titles have now passed the $100M milestone
The Weinstein Company's "King's Speech" and Fox Searchlight's "Black Swan" both passed the $100 million mark domestically this weekend, with the films grossing $103.3 million and $101.8 milllion, according to respective studio estimates through Sunday.
The overall domestic box office remains down well over 20 percent this year, but Oscar-nominated specialty titles have fared well.
Three such films have passed the $100 million benchmark, including Paramount's "True Grit," which has grossed nearly $164 million.
Sony's "The Social Network," meanwhile, remains tantalizingly close, having grossed just over $96 million.
