This makes sense to me. My book Kicking Ass was released on 9/11. It didn’t do very well. People wanted to escape from reality.
I suspect the same thing’s happening again. Some will want to immerse themselves in the tragedy: as many, or more, will want to escape.

Fellowship of the Ring came out not long after 9/11 and benefitted from the same effect I think. People really took to Gandalf’s “we don’t get to choose the times you live in, just what you do with the time you’ve got” speech.
