Friends with Limited Releases

March 9th, 2012

There are plenty of limited releases on this week's list, including a couple that earned some strong pre-release buzz. One of these, Friends with Kids is opening in close to 400 theaters, which is a huge amount for a limited release. It will certainly be the biggest limited release at the box office, but I'm not sure how well it will do on the per theater chart.

It was made in 2002 but spent the better part of a decade unreleased. But now that one of its stars, Bradley Cooper, is one of the hottest box office draws, the film is coming out direct-to-DVD. The question is simple, was it worth the wait? More...
