Synopsis

A documentary feature confronting an urgent problem facing America—its increasingly destructive trade relationship with a rapidly rising China. Since the United States fully opened its markets to China in 2001, over 50,000 American factories have disappeared, more than 25 million Americans can’t find a decent job, and America now owes over 3 trillion dollars to the world’s largest totalitarian nation. Through interviews with voices across the political spectrum, Death By China exposes just how badly the U.S.-China relationship is broken—and why fixing that destructive relationship is critical both to restoring American prosperity and ensuring a peaceful future.

Per Theater Chart: Cosmopolis is Cosmopolitan

August 22nd, 2012

Cosmopolis led the way on the per theater chart with an excellent opening of $70,000 in three theaters for an average of $23,446. Given its reviews, I'm not sure it will do well as it expands. Robot and Frank was also strong with an average of $17,770 in two theaters, while Compliance was right behind with $16,427 in one theater. Ek Tha Tiger didn't quite reach the $10,000 club over the weekend with an average of $9,655, but it was a Wednesday release, so had it opened on Friday, it likely would have easily made the cut.
