Avatar Still Filling Theaters

Avatar returned to the top of the per theater chart thanks to its record-breaking weekend result. It earned more than $50 million in 3,422 theaters for an average of $14,701. Crazy Heart was very close behind with an average of $14,004 in 33 theaters, which suggests further room to expand. Likewise, The Lovely Bones could do reasonably well this Friday when it expands after pulling in an average of $12,857 this weekend; however, there is a note of caution, as the film is still playing in only three theaters.

Awards Season - Precious and Station Lead Independent Spirit Awards

As always, the Independent Spirit Awards represent the unofficial start of Awards Season with the announcement of their nominations.

There were more than half-a-dozen films to top $10,000 on the per theater chart, including The Princess and the Frog, which earned close to $800,000 in just two theaters for an average of $393,095. Broken Embraces saw its per theater average rise by more than 10% to $58,993, which bodes well for its chances to expand. Next up was Me and Orson Welles with an average of $15,910 in 4 theaters, while The Road opened with $1.5 million in 111 theaters for an average of $13,534. A trio of top ten moves rounded out the $10,000 club with The Blind Side earning an average of $12,774, Precious took in an average of $10,680, and finally The Twilight Saga - New Moon was right behind with $10,606.

The Princess and Orson Welles and other Limited Releases

Buy at AllPosters.com

Only four wide releases this week, and only one of them has a Tomatometer Score above the 80% level usually associated with films that thrive in limited release. That said, the other three all have Tomatometer Scores in the 70s, and all could earn at least a slice of mainstream success. Also coming out this week is a Canadian movie, which doesn't have as rosy a box office future. More...
