A musical chronicling a love affair and marriage taking place over a five year period. Jordan is a young, talented up and coming novelist who falls in love with Cathy Hiatt, a struggling actress. Their story is told almost entirely through song. All of Cathy’s songs begin at the end of their marriage and move backwards in time to the beginning of their love affair, while Jamie’s songs start at the beginning of their affair and move forward to the end of their marriage. They meet in the center when Jamie proposes.

Per Theater Chart: Shadow Steals Spotlight in Its Debut

February 18th, 2015

What We Do in the Shadows poster

What We Do in the Shadows dominated the per theater chart earning an average of $41,778 in two theaters. This is high enough to suggest the film will be able to expand significantly. Additionally, its reviews are stunning, so its chances at box office success are even better. However, the comedy stylings of Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi are not really mainstream and that might hurt its chances. The second place film on the per theater chart was the overall number one film, Fifty Shades of Grey, which earned an average of $23,360. The Last 5 Years was next with an average of $17,158 in three theaters. Gett: The Trial of Viviane Amsalem opened with an average of $12,105 in two theaters. Meanwhile, the second wide release of the week, Kingsman: The Secret Service, was the final film in the $10,000 club with an average of $11,300. More...

What We Do in the Shadows poster

After two weeks of doing highlights for limited release, I'm thinking of sticking with the format. If the film can't get at least five reviews on Rotten Tomatoes, it likely won't find an audience in theaters. I was thinking of only talking about films with overwhelmingly positive reviews, but some weeks that would be none. This week, there are only two. What We Do in the Shadows (Reviews) and Gett: The Trial of Viviane Amsalem (Reviews). The latter has better reviews, but the former has more popular appeal. More...
