Namesake proved that Kal Penn could lead a drama better than he does most of his comedies.
Over the weekend, the film pulled in nearly a quarter of a million dollars in just 6 theaters for an average of $41,425.
That was well ahead of the overall box office leader, 300 and its still fantastic $22,844.
The last film in the $10,000 club was a holdover, as Into Great Silence fell just 3.4% to $11,566 despite doubling its theater count to two.

Good selection of limited releases this week with two that jump out as must-sees: Fido and The Host. Both are opening with a bigger push than expected, but that might not be enough to help them succeed. Correction: Fido doesn't come out in Canada until next Friday.
I was confused because I've been seeing ads for it all week.
Usually, when it comes to Canadian movies, you don't see ads this far in advance, if you see them at all.
