My Name is King of the Per Theater Chart

February 17th, 2010

My Name is Khan beat expectations by a large margin with an average of $16,200 in 120 theaters over the three-day weekend and $18,875 million over four. The overall box office champ, Valentine's Day, placed second with an average of $15,351 over the three-day weekend. The Red Riding Trilogy held on strong with averages of $13,374 / $17,056. The re-release of Ran took in $10,128 from Friday to Sunday and $13,470 including Monday in its lone theater.

A number of films missed the $10,000 club over the three-day weekend but reached that milestone once you include Monday. These were led by Ajami with a four-day average of $12,171. Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief was next with $11,520 while The Wolf Man was right next behind with $11,035. Avatar was equally close behind with $10,720 while the final $10,000 film was Videocracy with a four-day box office of $10,491 in one theater.

The only other new limited release that we have numbers for is American Radical, which made $4,122 over three days in one theater, but we don't have numbers for Monday.

This past week also saw milestones reached for a few Per Theater Charts alumni:

  • White Ribbon just reached $1 million over the weekend and it has a shot at $2 million.
  • The Last Station also made it to $1 million. $2 million is practically guaranteed.
  • My Name is Khan opened with $2 million, if you include Monday.
  • As expected, An Education managed to get all the way to $10 million and $15 million isn't out of the question, if it can convert some of its Oscar nominations to wins.
  • Crazy Heart topped $15 million over the weekend, while it should surpass $20 million by this time next week.
