Per Theater Chart: Lovely and Strange
September 3rd, 2014
The Last of Robin Hood led the way on the Per Theater Chart with an average of $17,709 in two theaters. Through a Lens Darkly was the only other member of the $10,000 club with $11,764 in its lone theater. This is more impressive, because it opened on Wednesday.
Of the rest of the new limited releases, only two did well. Cantinflas opened in 12th place earning $2.66 million in 382 theaters for an average of $6,967. Starred Up was right behind with an average $6,781 in two theaters. Kundo: Age of the Rampant did okay with an average of $4,316 in 28 theaters. Last Weekend struggled with $3,492 in one theater, Canopy earned $3,042, also in one theater. Life of Crime is playing on Video on Demand, so its theatrical numbers are not as important. That said, an average of $2,819 in 37 theaters is still not a good start. Likewise, The Congress was even weaker with an average of $2,545 in 15 theaters. The Notebook barely avoided Mendoza Line with an average of $2,097 in two theaters. Raja Natwarlal wasn't as lucky with an average of $1,146 in 73.
This past week also saw milestones reached for several Per Theater Chart alumni:
- Cantinflas earned more than $2 million during its opening weekend, so it goes without saying that it got to the $2 million milestone. It will get to $5 million at the very least, while if can expand significantly, $10 million is an easy target.
- Calvary was able to expand this past weekend and that helped it get passed $2 million.
- The Admiral: Roaring Currents surpassed $2 million before the weekend, but it looks like its legs will be shorter from now on.
- A Most Wanted Man hit $15 million early in the weekend, but that's as far as it will go.
- Chef got all the way to $30 million over the weekend. It is now ahead of Get on Up and just behind Deliver Us From Evil on the yearly chart.
