When they are evicted from their home, struggling Bronx auto mechanic Jaden Miller will do everything in his power to save he and his mother from living on the streets. With the help of legendary trainer, Duane Taylor, Miller soon finds that boxing is their ticket to a better life. Earning the title 'Bronx Boy,' Miller becomes a local hero. After winning a big fight, a cable network takes notice and decides to give Miller his own TV show, 'The Challenger,' which will follow him all the way to the Light-Heavyweight Title.

Per Theater Chart: Sleeping's Shocking Start

September 16th, 2015

Sleeping with Other People

Sleeping with Other People wasn't expected to do well in theaters, because it only earned mixed reviews, while it was also playing on VOD. Despite this, it led the way on the per theater chart with an average of $17,820 in five theaters. Goodbye Mommy was in second place with an average of $15,063. It could do well in the art house circuit, but expanding wide will be nearly impossible for this German film. Meet the Patels was right behind with an average of $14,436. It too could do well in the art house circuit, but it is a documentary, so expanding wide is likely out of the question. The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution was the only holdover in the $10,000 club with an average of $13,288 in three theaters. The overall number one film, The Perfect Guy, was next with an average of $11,656. The final film in the $10,000 club was A Brilliant Mind with an average of $10,469 in three theaters. More...
