The Biopic of Harvey Pekar, American Splendor easily took top spot on the Per Theater Average chart this week. The movie, which is named after the comic book he started in the mid 70's, earned an impressive $159,705 in only 6 theatres. With excellent reviews and maybe some more buzz, this movie could see some mainstream success. American Splendor beat out last week's winner, Step into Liquid by a margin of more than 2-1. The surfing documentary lost more than half its per theatre average, but that's to be expected when the theatre count triples.
