Synopsis

In the days following Stalin’s collapse, his core team of ministers tussle for control; some want positive change in the Soviet Union, others have more sinister motives. Their one common trait? They’re all just desperately trying to remain alive.

Theater Averages: Infinity War Soars with The Seagull

May 15th, 2018

Avengers: Infinity War

Avengers: Infinity War and The Seagull were neck-and-neck on the theater average chart with averages of $13,875 and $13,435, respectively. Boom for Real was next with an average of $11,359 in two theaters. The final film in the $10,000 club was Soller’s Point with $10,618 in one theater. More...

Theater Averages: Box Office is Full of Grace

April 18th, 2018

Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami

Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami had the best opening of the limited releases earning an average of $18,724 in three theaters. The only other film in the $10,000 Club was The Rider, which earned an average of $14,081, also in three theaters. More...

Theater Averages: Never Really Here Arrives on the Top

April 11th, 2018

You Were Never Really Here

You Were Never Really Here was the clear winner on the theater average chart earning over $130,000 in just three theaters for an average of $44,276. This isn’t the best theater average for a film released in 2018, but it is in the top five. The overall number one film, A Quiet Place, was next with an average of $14,311. The final film in the $10,000 club is Lean on Pete, which earned an average of $11,744 in four theaters. More...

Theater Averages: Dog Days Carry it to a Second Win

April 3rd, 2018

Isle of Dogs

For the second weekend in a row, Isle of Dogs led the way on the theater average chart with $17,839 in 165 theaters. The only other film to reach the $10,000 mark was Love After Love, which pulled in $11,290 in its lone theater. More...

Theater Averages: Isle Dogpiles the Competition

March 27th, 2018

Isle of Dogs

Isle of Dogs had the best theater average of the weekend and indeed the year with an average of $59,825 in 27 theaters. Technically Fantastic Mr. Fox had a better average with $66,475, but it was only playing on 4 theaters, so this is much more impressive. More...

Weekend Estimates: Pacific Rim Leads Weak Field of Openers

March 25th, 2018

Pacific Rim: Uprising

Black Panther’s run at the top of the domestic chart will finally come to an end this weekend, with Pacific Rim: Uprising taking over as the most popular film in the US and Canada. The switch over is mostly due to Panther beginning to run out of steam, rather than Uprising showing any particular strength though. Universal’s sci-fi action movie will pick up $28.005 million over its opening weekend in North America, about in line with expectations, but disappointing for a film that cost $150 million to make. Overseas markets, particularly in Asia, are where the box office action is at for this one. More...

Theater Averages: Flower Doesn’t Smell as Sweet as Stalin

March 20th, 2018

Flower

The Death of Stalin remained in first place on the theater average chart with an average of $16,791 in 32 theaters, while Flower was right behind with an average of $16,306 in 3 theaters. Keep the Change did really well for a rom com with $12,445 in its lone theater. I Can Only Imagine opened semi-wide managing an average of $10,507. More...

Theater Averages: Death Has Lively Opening with $46,201 Average

March 14th, 2018

The Death of Stalin

The Death of Stalin earned first place on the theater average chart with an average of $46,201 in four theaters. Claire’s Camera was well back with $11,489 in its lone theater. Black Panther remained in the $10,000 club for the fourth weekend in a row with $10,354. More...

Limited and VOD Releases: Death of Limited Releases

March 9th, 2018

The Death of Stalin

It is one of the worst times of year to release a film in limited release, as the Oscars are still taking up a lot of space and it is too soon for summer to boost the box office numbers. That said, while there are not a lot of limited releases on this week’s list, there are some that might actually have a real shot at box office success. The Death of Stalin has the loudest buzz and the reviews are outstanding. Meanwhile, both Claire’s Camera and Thoroughbreds could be surprise hits. More...

2017 Awards Season: BAFTA Nominations

January 11th, 2018

The Shape of Water

The BAFTA nominations were announced and this time The Shape of Water led the way with 12 nominations. The same films appear on many of the lists of nominees, but so far no one film has come to dominate the list. This makes it interesting, to say the least. There’s a good chance no one film will win the majority of prestige awards and that multiple films will have lots of reason to celebrate on February 18th when the awards are handed out. More...
