Synopsis

“Lucha libre” (free fighting) is known to millions around the world as Mexico’s colorfully acrobatic version of professional wrestling. For many, the Luchadores are the Superheroes of Mexican pop culture: El Santo and Blue Demon, the stars who built the business, are the country’s Superman and Batman. These masked warriors filled arenas long before Vince McMahon innovated modern North American wrestling. CMLL, the original wrestling organization, has a consistent viewership of 15-20 million every week in Mexico, and plays even wider to the massive international Spanish-speaking audience. It is a traditional entertainment that has ingrained itself in Mexican culture, but one that continues to grow and revitalize for each new generation.

Theater Averages: Café Tops Yearly Chart with an Average of $71,858

July 19th, 2016

Café Society

Café Society earned first place on the theater average chart with an average of $71,858 in five theaters over the weekend. This is not only the best of the weekend, it is the best of the year so far, topping the previous champ, Captain America: Civil War, which had an average of $42,390 during its opening weekend. Second place went to Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party with an average of $24,938; however, while this is a great result for a documentary, digging just a little into the film’s numbers reveals major weaknesses. The film fell 50% from Friday to Saturday. That’s devastating. We will see if this is an anomaly or a portent when we get this coming weekend’s results. Ghostbusters and The Secret Life of Pets were neck-and-neck with averages of $11,612 and $11,604 respectively. More...

Café Society

It’s not a grand week for limited releases. Café Society is the only big release of the week and while its reviews and its pedigree suggest it should be a hit, it might be the only hit of the week. More...
