Sunshine opened stronger than expected at the weekend, earning close to $250,000 in 10 theaters for an average of $24,296.
This is more than enough to justify expanding over the coming weeks, but a wide release is still not guaranteed.
The only other film to top $10,000 on the per theater chart was Partner with $10,073.

It's the busiest week in a long time and not only do we have more than three dozen films on this week's list (and six spotlight reviews), but we have plenty of releases worthy of the DVD Pick of the Week.
Hard Boiled - 2-Disc Collector's Edition, Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law - Volume 3, The Host - 2-Disc Special Edition... and those are just the ones beginning with the letter H. All three of those deserve to be added to your DVD collections, as well as a few others, but I'm trying to limit the DVD Pick of the Week to one selection and that's The Host - 2-Disc Special Edition.

Big list in terms of numbers, not so much in terms of quality. In fact, the best film in terms of updates this week was The Simpsons Movie - Official Site, which has already won the Weekly Website Award. Because of that, there are no new winners this week.

There are a couple of films opening in limited release this weekend that might expand wide, Sunshine and Goya's Ghosts.
If I were to put money on the outcome, I would say Sunshine has the better shot at mainstream success, but both will have a difficult time making it.

The list returns to its normal busy self, in fact, we have several sites making their first appearance this weekend. In addition, there were a couple of older sites that saw massive updates, including this week's winner, Charlie Bartlett - Official Site.
