There were four films in the $10,000 club, including The Theory of Everything, which led the way with an average of $41,753 in five theaters. This is high enough to make some measure of mainstream success nearly inevitable. Up next were a pair of wide releases. Big Hero 6 earned an average of $14,947, while Interstellar was right behind with an average of $13,342. The final film in the $10,000 club was National Gallery, which earned $10,049 in one theater over the weekend for a total opening of $13,165.

Only one other new limited releases did well and that was Bhopal: A Prayer for Rain with $5,948 in its lone theater. The Way He Looks only managed an average of $2,926 in nine theaters. Viva La Liberta was right behind with an average of $2,636 in two theaters, while Death Metal Angola was in a virtual tie with $2,500 in one theater. Why Don't You Play In Hell? missed the Mendoza Line with an average of $1,687 in three theaters. On Any Sunday: The Next Chapter opened in over 200 theaters, which turned out to be about 200 too many, as it only managed an average of $1,390. The Tower was weaker still with an opening of $726 in one theater. That still beat out Mr. Pip, which earned an average of just $171 in ten theaters.

As expected, Dear White People reached $3 million before the weekend and it is already more than halfway to $4 million. However, it was the only limited release to earn a major milestone this weekend.
