Focus Features' release of Ang Lee's "Brokeback Mountain" was a resounding success with the film earning more than half-a-million dollars in its limited debut this weekend. According to a Focus Features estimate Sunday, the film made $544,275 at five venues split between New York City, Los Angeles and San Francisco, for an incredible estimated per screen average of $108,855. The per screen figure is being touted as the highest ever for an adult drama (topped only by limited release openings of kid-oriented Disney fare). [Eugene Hernandez]
