The overall box office leader, Paranormal Activity 3, was next with $15,829.

Margin Call was a surprise entrant in the $10,000 club, as it was playing in 56 theaters, which is a lot for a limited release. Its opening weekend average of $10,034 and excellent reviews suggests some potential to expand, while reaching $1 million should happen sometime during the upcoming weekend. More...

Hopefully these two, and a few others, will find a receptive audience in limited release. More...
