Box-Office failure of ‘Taking Woodstock’ baffles director Ang Lee

Ang Lee said he's baffled by the poor boxoffice results of "Taking Woodstock" -- the Oscar-winning director's worst-performing English-language movie in the U.S. in 10 years.

The Focus Features comedy, which chronicles the buildup to the 1969 rock 'n' roll gathering that drew half a million fans, had earned $7.4 million in the U.S. as of Monday, according to the boxoffice tracking Web site Box Office Mojo. It's Lee's worst outing at the boxoffice for an English film since "Ride with the Devil," which made $635,096. The 1999 western had a limited release of 60 theaters compared to 1,395 for "Taking Woodstock."
