Better Luck Tomorrow is This Weekend’s Best
April 15th, 2003
The independent film about Asian-American students, Better Luck Tomorrow grabbed $360,000 in just 13 theatres to lead the Per Theatre Average with $27,751. With a cost of only $250,000 and a per Theatre Average that suggests at least some main stream success is in order, this could be the year’s independent darling.
The last movie to carry the hopes, Bend it Like Beckham, is still hanging in the top ten on the Per Theatre chart in its 5th week of release. And it is slowly moving up the total box office charts with its expanding release.
This week’s Box Office Champ, Anger Management was the first movie to open wide with more than $10,000 per theatre since Bringing Down the House. And it was the best Per Theatre Average for a wide release since The Two Towers.
