Synopsis

A mysterious samurai arrives at the doorstep of his feudal lord, requesting an honorable death by ritual suicide in his courtyard. The lord threatens him with the brutal tale of Motome, a desperate young ronin who made a similar request with ulterior motives, only to meet a grisly end. Undaunted, the samurai begins to tell a story of his own.

Dark Knight Brightens the Per Theater Chart

July 24th, 2012

The Dark Knight Rises led the way on the per theater chart with an average of $36,532, which is excellent for an ultra-wide release.

Space Station bounced back into the $10,000 club with an average of $11,540 in two theaters with Deep Sea 3-D right behind with $10,590 in one theater. The final film to crack $10,000 was The Imposter with $10,202 in its lone theater. More...

Dark Knight Sinks Limited Releases

July 20th, 2012

Not only has The Dark Knight Rises scared off the competition in terms of wide releases, there are almost no limited releases coming out this week either.

I don't think any of them will earn a real measure of mainstream success, but The Queen of Versailles will likely perform the best this weekend. More...
