The Summer Of The Documentary?

While big blockbuster movie fatigue seems to be setting in this summer, a handfull of documentaries are finding traction. A few can even be called big successes – by documentary standards…”Even the most costly docs rarely exceed a $1 million budget. Whereas a blockbuster like ‘Terminator 3’ might play on 3,500 screens, documentaries are lucky to make it onto 100. In the world of blockbusters, the (box office) mark to hit is $100 million, but in the world of documentaries, it’s $1 million.”
