The Big Short

We have a new champion on top of the per theater chart this week, as The Big Short earned one of the best limited release openings of the year.

Yellow Day opened with an average of $13,130 in two theaters. The Danish Girl rounded out the $10,000 club with an average of $10,964 in 24 theaters. By this time next week, it could be over $1 million in total. More...
