Theater Averages: The New Year has a Patriotic Start

January 10th, 2017

Patriots Day

The theater average chart was dominated by holdovers, as is the norm this time of year. The top film was Patriots Day with an average of $14,972 in seven theaters. This bodes very well for its wide expansion next weekend. 20th Century Women is becoming a sleeper hit earning an average of $13,047 in ten theaters. This is one of those films that should be earning more Awards Season buzz, but I fear it has slipped between the cracks. Toni Erdmann and Paterson were neck-and-neck with averages of $10,472 and $10,205 respectively. More...

Limited and VOD Releases: Daniel Blake Leads Bleak Week

January 6th, 2017

I, Daniel Blake

It shouldn’t surprise anyone that the first weekend of January is a slow week for limited releases. It’s too late to qualify for this year’s Awards Season and the competition for late entries into the Oscar race is intense. I, Daniel Blake is the best of a limited field and is certainly worth checking out, while Accidental Courtesy: Daryl Davis, Race & America is also worth it, if you like documentaries. More...

International Box Office: Rogue Remains in First with $135.5 million, While International Films Flourish

December 29th, 2016

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story remained in first place with $47.1 million in 54 markets for totals of $237.4 million internationally and $523.4 million worldwide. The film “struggled” over the weekend, but mainly due to the holidays. Christmas Eve is as big of a dead zone in most of Europe as it is here; in fact, a lot of theaters close on Christmas Eve. Likewise, a lot of theaters in the U.K. and Australia are closed on Christmas day. Even so, the film has already cracked $10 million in a number of major markets, starting with the the U.K., where it has $42.1 million. Germany and France are neck-and-neck with $21.8 million and $19.6 million respectively. The film has pulled in $17.84 million in Australia and $16.7 million in Japan. Next week we will have a better picture where the film is heading, as the holidays will be over in most places. I think $1 billion worldwide is a safe bet. More...
