Synopsis

Taku and his best friend Yutaka are headed back to school for what looks like another uneventful year. But they soon find their friendship tested by the arrival of Rikako, a beautiful new transfer student from Tokyo whose attitude vacillates wildly from flirty and flippant to melancholic. When Taku joins Rikako on a trip to Tokyo, the school erupts with rumors, and the three friends are forced to come to terms with their changing relationships.

Theater Averages: Hidden Stands Out with Average of $34,329

January 4th, 2017

Hidden Figures

Hidden Figures rose to first place during its first full weekend of release with an average of $34,329 in 25 theaters. It already has more than $2 million and it expands wide on Friday. 20th Century Women was next with an average of $27,800 in four theaters. It isn’t a major player during Awards Season, but it is picking up enough nominations to help it stick around in theaters. Patriots Day was down just 8% earning an average of $21,117 in seven theaters. Last week’s winner, Silence, fell to an average of $20,827 in four theaters. If it has a similar drop next week, it will put its wide release in jeopardy. The best limited release of the week was Paterson, which earned an average of $17,334 in four theaters. Toni Erdmann earned an average of $14,000 in three theaters during its first full week of release. La La Land continues to expand, but remained in the $10,000 club with an average of $12,738. The overall number one film, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, was next with an average of $11,934, while the second place film, Sing, was right behind with an average of $10,647. More...

Limited and VOD Releases: Which Releases will Make some Noise?

December 30th, 2016

Paterson

The last weekend of the year is also the last chance for Oscar contenders to qualify for the Oscars. Two of the three films on this week’s list are absolutely Oscar-bait. Paterson has a better shot at Awards Season glory than The Founder does, but The Founder has a wide expansion planned for January, so it will likely do better at the box office. Meanwhile, the third film, Ocean Waves, is earning the best reviews and is a must see for fans of Studio Ghibli. More...
