A chilling nightmare plays out at a Titan II missile complex in Arkansas in September, 1980. A worker accidentally drops a socket, puncturing the fuel tank of an intercontinental ballistic missile carrying the most powerful nuclear warhead in our arsenal, an incident which ignites a series of feverish efforts to avoid a deadly disaster.

Theater Averages: Yerevan Highlight of Dark Weekend with an Average of $9,748

September 21st, 2016

3 Weeks in Yerevan

No films made it into the $10,000 club this past weekend, but 3 Weeks in Yerevan came really close with an average of $9,748 in three theaters. Another film, The Beatles: Eight Days a Week, did well with an average of $7,322 in 85 theaters. Sort of. In addition to playing in 85 theaters, there were another 80 theaters that had one-time showings over the weekend, which is why its total haul for the weekend is $771,153. I really hope having a mixed of regular showings and one-time screenings doesn’t catch on, because it makes our job of tracking box office numbers more confusing. More...

Limited and VOD Releases: Waiting All Week for Limited Releases

September 16th, 2016

The Beatles: Eight Days a Week, The Working Years

There are almost 30 films opening in limited release this week, so obviously I won’t have time talk about all of them. I won’t have time to talk about half of them. The two films that stand out in this crowd are The Beatles: Eight Days a Week, The Working Years and Miss Stevens. Both are earning great reviews, but the former is a documentary and the latter debuts on VOD on Tuesday, so neither has a great shot at box office success. More...
