Sandra Bullock Makes Box Office History

Sandra Bullock has a lot to smile about – over the weekend, The Blind Side became the first female-led film to hit $200 million at the U.S. box office, bringing in a total of $208.5 million so far, according to Variety.

“And we’re not even done,” Warner Brothers’ president of domestic distribution Dan Fellman said. “I think Blind Side has another $30 million left.”

In total, Sandra Bullock‘s films have grossed $1.72 billion in the U.S.!

  • nathan

    she totally deserves it, i’m so glad she is back

    The film looks interesting but I had no idea it would or could do this well.

  • anaïs

    It’s quiet stupid to say that she deserve it, the money doesn’t go to her!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • @anais

    no but her pay checks just keep going up and up and up

  • wendy

    Um what you posted IS stupid, she deserves the success, reviews, and possible awards this will get her. The fact the movie did so well proves that SHE sells, and thus gives her more power with those male Hollywood p*gs in the future projects!

    Hurray for Sandra. The real deal. Love that she is not a fame ho, nor does she strip to get attention, no ego, real talent and humility. A true star and she deserves recognition for this feat. A woman over forty in HW carrying a movie of this magnitude..she and Angie are helping change a lot of existing biases against women in the industry. Angie getting ‘lead male’ roles in the action genre and Sandy accomplishing this. Bravo to these two ladies who are ‘leading the way.’ These two are real professionals.

  • Durkin

    She is adorable, and I really enjoy her work.

  • Jenna

    I like Sandra but to be honest I didn’t think the movie was that great! I feel like i’ve watched a thousand movies with a similar story line!

  • pokeman

    i love her. great actress. good for her.

  • Not Impressed by JA

    Congrats to Sandra ! It’s about time, an actress makes that amount of money domestically.
    .
    She deserves any praise.
    .
    Hope it will open more movies with great female roles.

  • Tina

    Sandra is the ONLY romcom actress that I really LIKE as a person!

  • http://www.crookedbrook.com/e.htm Chef Jacke

    You go girl!

  • love it

    I love Sandy, she’s so “with it”. it’s not only romcom she can do. I loved her in Infamous playing the author Harper Lee. Congrats.

  • T pain

    Jennifer Aniston is probably jealous of Sandra’s life.

  • cindy

    The movie was great and everyone did a great job in it. The story is similar to many, but how can you bash it for having been told before. It’s a true story.

  • eliott

    Congratulations, Sandra. You are America’s Sweetheart.

    I love that she has accomplished so much in her professional life, while still having a rich & full personal life. Husband, family, philanthropic interests . . . it’s obviously not all about her.

  • http://lpauldo@yahoo.com me

    Was a good movie saw it to times.

  • Calia

    It’s funny because people, including Julia Roberts, still think Roberts is a big draw, when it’s Sandra.

    Julia Robert’s movies were flops. Sandra’s movies did well. The Blind Side and The Proposal.

  • Go Ask Alice

    Gotta go with everybody else.

    Sandra Bullock is a good actress. Fame does not go to her head.
    She lives in Austin,TX, New Orleans, LA and I am sure has places in NYC and L.A.

    She is never in scandal.

    Good for her.

    Also, if YOU DID NOT SEE THIS MOVIE, go see it.

    True story of Baltimore Ravens #74 Micheal Oher.
    You laugh, cry, cheer, love this family.

    Read his story on line. He is lucky and his family was lucky.

    I just hope Sandy can have children one day

  • maria

    best film ever!!!! lov u sandy!!

  • gamerchick

    Love Sandra! America’s sweetheart and great actress on her own (Jen Garner and Katie holmes are jealous….they are famediggers marrying up to try and boost their careers only to end in fail.)

    @Calia:

    Julia Roberts can be a big draw again. She just needs the right material. Just like it took Sandra a while to have a successful movie again. She just needed to find projects with the right material. And while Sandra may have been the first women to gross $200 million dollars on her name alone, Julia still have the bigger lifetime gross with $2.3 Billion.

  • =Logan=

    GO SANDRA!! ALWAYS LOVED HER

    GIRL POWER

    congrats, sandra!!!
    still havent watched the blind side but i did watch the proposal, was pretty funny
    she’s had a monster year in 2009
    she deserves it

  • I tell the truth

    I love Sandra! Some people say she is a bad actress but I like her she seems like a genuine nice person also! Happy for her success. And I agree Julia Roberts needs to get off her high horse. I didn’t get why she was so hot anyway. No one is checking for you anymore. Sandra had hit after hit this year. Julia? None because she still thinks she is worth $20 million pay days.

    Now maybe she’ll do the right thing and ride into the sunset!

    Just goes to show you the dismal state of western society today. Very depressing news.

  • Not Impressed by JA

    Also this is even more fantastic that ‘A blind side’ is not a rom com per see but a drama movie.

    .
    Again, congrats to Sandra for this amazing accomplishment !

  • LukeOz

    Well Done Sandy Bullock!

    You deserve every sucess!

  • Patsy

    Good for her. I like a lot, she seems so open and honest and not a drama queen. She tries her best a being a good stepmom: not an easy task. So I think it is really great that she has another hit movie, after a few quieter years.

  • Patty

    I love Sandra! She is awesome as well as her films! Congrats to her and the best for her in the years to come ^_^!

  • http://nursedatingsite.com nursedatingsite

    She is such a strong woman

  • Marieme

    I’m so friggin happy for her. I doubt she much cares, but it’s about time she was out of Julia’s shadow. Look forward to many more years of Sandy!

  • Oh….how….lovely…

    WHAT….SANDRA BULLOCK AND NOT ANGIE????? Hahaahahahaha, you loons are losing your azzz over this. Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah. And the one saying Jen was upset hahahahahahah. She’s crying all the way to the BANK!!! Waaaaaahhhhh………..

  • dp

    oh sandra – i LOVE you. she had such a great speech at the People’s choice

  • kaching

    @Oh….how….lovely…:

    hoohhhaaaha. WHAT – not Saint Angie?! the greatest and bestest actress who plays the same character in every action flick in the world???
    hahaha – all that media whring got her nowhere??? and being beat by a 40 something lovable rom-com actress?? where did it ALL go wrong??

    and btw – angie get lead male spy role thus she’s a game changer? please. Terminator 4? Alias? Shooter? . nothing earth shattering about her role – just media SPINNING. besides – blanchett in I’m not there holds the “game changer’ crown.

  • milena

    That’s not correct..Nia Vardalos already did that with My Big Fat Greek Wedding…

  • Angel_Eyes
