News From Planet Mars follows the unusual life of Philippe Mars a reasonable man in an unreasonable world. He’s trying to be a good father, a kind ex-husband, a nice colleague, and an understanding sibling. But the planets have not been exactly aligned in his favor lately. With his son turning into a hardcore vegan, his daughter into a pathological overachiever and his sister selling oversized paintings of their naked parents, it seems to our ever-so prudent Philippe that everyone around him is starting to behave more and more erratically…When his more than over the top colleague Jerôme accidentally chops off his ear then moves into Philippe’s apartment, things start to go from bad to insane for our hero.

Theater Averages: Don’t Think Twice hits First Place on Yearly Chart with an Average of $92,835

Don’t Think Twice

Café Society fell to second place with $16,999, but it did expand to 50 theaters, so this is still impressive. The number one film of the weekend, Star Trek Beyond, earned an average of $15,085. The only other film in the $10,000 club was Train to Busan with an average of $10,547 in 28 theaters. However, Kabali came close with $8,380 in 236 over the three-day weekend and $16,539 including Thursday. More...
