A quirky internet star, a pair of retired gangsters, and the black sheep of a prolific family of herbalists are a few of the oddball tenants that call the dilapidated apartments of Humble Grove home. Fearful of being locked out by a ruthless property developer with his eye on the building, they’ve stayed inside for years. So, when supernatural incidents befall them all on one night, instead of running, they turn to flamboyant ghost hunter Golden Ling to perform a most unusual exorcism.

Theater Averages: Post Haunts the Theater Average Chart

The Post

None of the new releases reached the $10,000 club, which is not unexpected. The Post remained in first place earning an average of $47,167 in 36 theaters.

There was a large gap to the third place film, Ex Files 3: Return of the Exes, which earned an average of $10,418 in 17 theaters, while I, Tonya was right behind with $10,107 in 242 theaters. The best new release of the week was actually the only wide release of the week, Insidious: The Last Key, with an average of $9,493. More...

January 4th, 2018

In Between

It’s a bad weekend to release a limited release, as the Golden Globes are given out on Sunday. There are still some good films that are trying to find an audience, including Blame, Bob le flambeur, and In Between. I doubt any will have breakout success, but all three deserve to find an audience, either in theaters or on the home market. More...
