It might have done a little bit better, but not enough.

It would have brought another audience to the movies-the bookworms. So many people I know who love that movie never saw it in the theatre because the wrong people went to see it. Once I introduced them to it, they were obsessed. Many of these people are the friends I made on book fan sites and in my reading club, etc. Lady just needed some good publicity, and the literary world would be better adapted for that kind of story than the average movie watcher.

Then again, Night movies aren't for the average movie watcher so I don't know what to say on that regard. lol But it still stands that people who read books often see the movies they inspire, so that would have added diversity to the audience.

At least the first time I saw it the majority of the theatre applauded at the end...I have hope for the human species in moments like that. :P

That's cool, the first time I saw it, people just filed out.  Nobody said anything.
