A maverick New York hedge fund trader moves to Hong Kong and orchestrates a mega-deal that swiftly escalates beyond his control.

Per Theater Chart: 2 Days 2 Strong

August 15th, 2012

2 Days in New York led the way on the per theater chart with an average of $11,971 in two theaters. This is well below its predecessor and it likely won't have the same legs either.

Red Hook Summer was right behind with an average of $10,018 in four theaters. More...

Two Days of Limited Releases

August 10th, 2012

It is a pretty busy week for limited releases, but not a good week. There are several films earning good reviews, but only one of them is earning great reviews. That film is The Green Wave, but its box office chances are limited, because political documentaries rarely find large audiences, especially when the subject matter isn't connected to most audiences here.

On the other end of the scale, there are not as many films earning 80% positive films as there are films earning less than 20% positive reviews. On a side note, one of the best-reviewed release this week is Total Recall, which is coming out at the Film Forum tonight. More...
