Per Theater Chart: Breaking the Bank
Spring Breakers dominated the per theater chart earning the best per theater average for any film of 2013. It opened with an average of $87,667 in three theaters. Had it opened with a total of $87,667 in three theaters, it would have been a great start. A fellow A24 release, Ginger & Rosa, was next with an average of $14,279, also in three theaters. Somebody Up There Likes Me fell 64%, but still earned a spot in the $10,000 club with $12,310 in its one theater. Oz the Great and Powerful was the final film to earn more than $10,000 on the per theater chart with an average of $10,545.
There were a lot of other new limited releases, but only one of them did well. Reality earned $7,072 in one theater. M was re-released in one theater earning $6,123. Mindless Behavior: All Around the World opened in more than 100 theaters, which is a lot for a limited release, and it struggled accordingly with an average of just $2,944. Upside Down is performing a whole lot better internationally than it will domestically after opening with an average of just $2,570 in 11 theaters. If I Were You was one of three films that bombed hideously earning an average of just $325 in nine theaters. Leonie and Superstar were right behind with $291 and $189 respectively. Each was only playing in one theater.
Only one film reached a major milestone since this time last week as Emperor got to $2 million during just its second weekend of release. It should reach $3 million before it is done, but I wouldn't bet money on it getting to $4 million, on the other hand.
