Per Theater Chart: Nothing is Impossible

It was a busy week on the per theater chart with several films in the $10,000 club. These were led by Mission: Impossible: Ghost Protocol with $30,083, but given its unusual opening, it's hard to judge this start. (More on its IMAX run later today.) Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy expanded from four to sixteen theaters, but remained potent with an average of $28,549. Some measure of mainstream success is guaranteed, even if it is failing to live up to expectations during Awards Season. On the other hand, The Artist is starting to clean up during Awards Season and this is helping its per theater average remain strong at $16,904. It should have no trouble expanding some more, even if the nature of the film will prevent it from becoming a hit in Megaplexes. Carnage debuted with an average of $15,959 in five theaters, which is disappointing given its pedigree. The overall box office leader, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, was the final film in the $10,000 club earning an average of $10,704. More...

Limited Releases: Will Any Film Survive the Carnage?

The list of limited releases this week is much shorter and quite a bit weaker than the last few weeks. Carnage is the only film with a real shot at earning some measure of mainstream success, but its reviews are a little weak for a limited release. There are a couple documentaries that are earning better reviews, Addiction Incorporated and Corman's World: Exploits of a Hollywood Rebel, both of which deserve to find success. However, documentaries rarely manage to hit any major milestones in limited release. More...
