Man on Wire topped the per theater chart this week by pulling in an impressive average of $25,696 in two theaters. This was ahead of the overall box office leader, The Dark Knight, which earned an average of $17,216 in more than 4,000 theaters. Transsiberian also repeated in the $10,000 club, down roughly 23% to $13,280. Brideshead Revisited opened in 22 theaters, which is a lot of a limited release, but still managed an average of $10,291 during its opening weekend, which bodes well for its prospects at expansion. The final film to reach $10,000 did so by the narrowest of narrow margins as Step Brothers topped that milestone by less than 24 cents.

Summer is starting to wind down and there's not potential monster hits opening this week, which hurt this week's list at the top. However, while there were no groundbreaking sites this week, Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer's Official Site contained a 14-part behind the scenes video blog that is better than most DVDs have. This was enough to give the film the Weekly Website Award.

Nearly a dozen limited releases this week, although two of those are Canadian, so they don't count. (Joke.) The film with the best shot at mainstream success is Brideshead Revisted, but given this year's track record, I am hesitant to predict what its chances are to buck the trend.
