International Award winning Death Metal Angola follows a loving Angolan couple, Sonia and Wilker, whose love for death metal music is bringing hope to the town and children of Huambo and Angola as a country. The devastating reality of Angola’s history of wars and civil unrest has left the country’s people torn, broken, and starving for something to give them peace. Sonia and Wilker’s dream to put on the first national rock festival ignites the emotions of the Angolan people, and helps them heal from the war-stricken path Angola has left behind. This engaging reality of Angola touches the heart of the viewer and sheds new light on a music genre that is not well understood.

Per Theater Chart: Everything Above All Others

The Theory of Everything poster

There were four films in the $10,000 club, including The Theory of Everything, which led the way with an average of $41,753 in five theaters. This is high enough to make some measure of mainstream success nearly inevitable. Up next were a pair of wide releases. Big Hero 6 earned an average of $14,947, while Interstellar was right behind with an average of $13,342. The final film in the $10,000 club was National Gallery, which earned $10,049 in one theater over the weekend for a total opening of $13,165.


Everything is a Limited Release

November 7th, 2014

The Theory of Everything poster
There are a ton of limited releases coming out this week, including The Theory of Everything, which many people think will be an Awards Season contender. There are also a couple of foreign-language films worth checking out, Why Don't You Play in Hell and The Way He Looks. And finally, there are a trio of documentaries, Actress, Death Metal Angola, and National Gallery. Unfortunately, there are also a lot of films earning mixed or weaker reviews, so hopefully the good films don't get squeezed out.
