The overall box office leader, Maleficent, also led the way on the per theater chart with an average of $17,586 in nearly 4,000 theaters. Korengal was the best of the limited releases earning $14,630 in one lone theater. Night Moves was close behind with an average of $12,050 in two theaters. The final $10,000 film was Elena with $10,341 in one theater.

None of the rest of the new limited releases were bombs, but none were big hits either. We are the Best earned an average of $5,888 in three theaters, which is good, but not great. Lucky Them was next with $3,728 in one theater, which is a slow start. The Grand Seduction earned an average of $3,444 in 94 screens. Granted, this isn't a great per theater average, but it isn't bad for a film playing in that many theaters. Filth was playing in three theaters in the United States and earned an average of $2,509.

This past week also saw milestones reached for several Per Theater Chart alumni:

  • The Immigrant reached its first major milestone late in the weekend and it will very likely get to $2 million quickly.
  • Fading Gigolo got to $3 million before the weekend and it could be on track for $4 million.
  • The Railway Man got to $4 million over the weekend and while it has a shot at getting to $5 million, but it is not a sure bet.
  • Chef hit $4 million before the weekend and $5 million during the weekend. It will get to $10 million shortly.
  • Belle also got to $4 million before the weekend and $6 million during the weekend. Getting to $10 million is likely.
