Wounded in the war, Tommy Donahue and DD Davis return home from Iraq to the crime-stricken neighborhood in North Philadelphia they grew up in. Tommy returns to his wife, Faith, whom he abandoned while she was pregnant to escape a life of crime. DD returns to find that his older brother Darnell has risen to become the neighborhood kingpin. Tommy meets his disabled six year-old daughter, Hope, for the first time, and she begins to melt his frozen heart. DD faces the pressure to save his younger brother, James, from following in Darnell's dangerous footsteps. Tommy and DD find themselves trapped in the same ghetto they joined the military to escape. As they struggle for redemption, their own families become entangled in a web of crime, corruption and violence.

Per Theater Chart: Midnight Burns Bright

May 24th, 2011

Midnight in Paris had the best per screen average for the year so far and came within a rounding error of topping $100,000. The film opened with $599,003 in 6 theaters for an average of $99,834, which represents a career best for Woody Allen. Add in its Oscar-worthy reviews, and there's no telling where it could go. The overall number one film, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, was the only other film to crack $10,000 on the per theater chart, as it opened with an average of $21,697. More...

Limited Releases Looking to Make Lots of Noise

May 20th, 2011

This week's list of limited releases is not very strong with only one film with a better than 50% chance of making much noise. That film, Midnight in Paris, is the latest from Woody Allen and is earning the auteur's best reviews in more than a decade and a half. Perhaps it will be able to join Jane Eyre and Win Win at more than $10 million. (The latter hasn't made it there yet, but it should do so relatively soon.) Speaking of movies with $10-million ambitions, The Beaver was supposed to expand wide this weekend, but after struggling in limited release, that's not happening. It will be playing in more than 160 theaters, on the other hand, which is higher than most limited releases ever manage. More...
