Synopsis

In The Dark Truth an ex-CIA op-turned political talk show host is hired by a corporate whistle blower to expose her company's cover-up of a massacre in a South American village. The film draws attention to man's inhumanity and unconscious actions against the environment and questions if there is a moral and ethical obligation when talking about boundaries, borders and human interaction. With the ever-increasing depletion of earth's natural resource of water serving as the backdrop, a multi-national corporation disregards basic human needs that result in widespread illness and a people's uprising. The distress causes unlikely allies to conspire and seek redemption for past deeds and the greater good.

Per Theater Chart: Zero Still Heroic on Per Theater Chart

Zero Dark Thirty remained on the top of the per theater chart with an average of $44,933 in 60 theaters. To emphasize, the film saw its theater count leap from 5 to 60, but its per theater average only dropped 29% from $63,283 to $44,933. That's a lower drop-off than the average film in the top ten. At this point, expanding wide is a given, while the film has a solid shot at $100 million. 56 Up opened very strong with $22,088 in one theater. This should help it expand, but it is a documentary, so it is not going to expand wide. Amour remained in the $10,000 club with an average of $19,944. It is still playing in 3 theaters, but it should have room to expand significantly. More...

Limited Releases: Are Limited Releases Up to the Challenge?

Because you need to release a film before January 1st to quality for Oscars, many studios release their best limited releases right before the year ends. This means January is the worst time of year to release a limited release. Not only is it too late for Oscar glory, but they have to compete with films going for Oscar glory. So it comes as no surprise there are not a lot of films on this week's list, and only one of them, 56 Up, is earning great reviews. More...
