March Of The Penguins

From Slashdot:
Zinside writes "Yahoo News is running a story stating that March of the Penguins may become the No. 2 documentary of all time at U.S. box offices." From the article: "The film, which follows a pack of Emperor Penguins during an arduous mating season, had grossed $18.4 million by Wednesday and was poised to surpass the $21.6 million for Michael Moore's anti-gun documentary Bowling For Columbine. For 13 months, Jacquet and his crew braved Antarctic temperatures as low as 70 degrees below zero - and winds up to 150 mph - to capture astonishing images of thousands of emperor penguins engaging in a mating and child-rearing ritual that is nothing short of astonishing. The Penguins are a miraculous species, capable of extreme heroism, self-sacrifice, sorrow and unshakable love."
Yeah! I gotta go see that movie.

At first I thought that movie might have something to do with Linux.

Wait—you're saying that it isn't a documentary about a LUG?

The wife and I saw it this past Friday. Wonderful movie. Morgan Freeman's narration can be a little too homey for visions of Antarctica, but overall, pretty darn good movie.

I remember seeing a documentary on emperor penguins on PBS. Fascinating.
Here's a trailer for the movie if you haven't already seen one: http://www.apple.com/trailers/warner_independent_pictures/marchofthepenguins.html

It was pretty cute, but beware of the G-Rating. Joel & I went on a Saturday night and believe it or not, the theater was FILLED with kids. The little boy next to us screamed a lot during the previews because someone thought it was a good idea to show a preview of "Tim Burton's Corpse Bride" to 3-year-olds. Oops. I wish now that I had waited for DVD. My widescreen HDTV would have been fine. And no screaming kids to deal with.
