Mondo Trivia: Transylmania

*This recent box office bomb from National Lampoon debuted at #21 in its opening week, pulling in a mere $263,000!

Bear in mind that the movie opened in 1,007 theaters. This makes the gross from the film about $263 per theater, with tickets being around $10 each.

At least Zzyx Road pulled in $25,000 dollars from one theater, albeit in the star's hometown. At that rate, the movie would have made $25 million...which is not exactly all that great either.

*Incidentally, the CEO of National Lampoon got in trouble this year for falsely inflating his company's stock prices to buyers. The inflated price: $6 a share! I wonder how it got so low...
