Per Theater Chart: Waning Moon

June 19th, 2012

Moonrise Kingdom has been on the top of the per theater chart for close to a month now. The past weekend it managed an average of $12,571 in nearly 200 theaters. Unfortunately for the box office as a whole, it was the only film to reach the $10,000 market. Your Sister's Sister did come close with an average of $8,402 in thirteen theaters, which is good enough to suggest some potential to expand. More...

Your Limited Limited Releases

June 15th, 2012

Usually the opening week theater counts for limited releases start to trickle in on Wednesday and by Thursday we have quite a few to report. A few more arrive late on Friday, while annoyingly, some are not reported till Monday. This week, we only have one limited release reporting its theater count. That film is Your Sister's Sister, which is earning great reviews and equally good buzz, so there should be at least one hit in limited release this week. The Woman in the Fifth also has a shot at success. Its reviews are not as good, but it has a strong cast and that might make the difference. More...
