(Newser) – Sandra Bullock has become the first female star to carry a film past $200 million in domestic box office. Her football flick, The Blind Side, has made $208.5 million in seven weeks of release. Earlier star vehicles like Julia Roberts’ Erin Brockovich have fallen short; that movie made just $125.6 million. There is an outlier, the Wrap notes: Nia Vardalos’ My Big Fat Greek Wedding topped $240 million, but she was an unknown at the time.
