Per Theater Chart: Bling Ring Steals Top Spot

June 20th, 2013

The Bling Ring's reviews didn't hurt its opening as it scored an average of $42,597 in five theaters. Given this start, reaching at least one major milestone seems likely, even with its reviews. Man of Steel took second place on the per theater chart with an average of $27,720. 20 Feet from Stardom earned an average of $18,199 in three theaters. This is a great start for a documentary.

There were a lot of other new limited releases, but most bombed. More Than Honey earned $5,225 in one theater over the weekend and $7,531 from Wednesday through Sunday. Far Out Isn't Far Enough: The Tomi Ungerer Story opened with $3,700 over the weekend, also in one theater. Call Me Kuchu was right behind with $3,476, again in one theater. The Stroller Strategy missed the Mendoza Line with just $1,799 in its lone theater. Pandora's Promise opened in 16 theaters, which is a lot for a documentary, but it bombed with an average of $1,406. Berberian Sound Studio earned an average of $1,320 in five theaters, while Fukrey was right behind with an average of $1,300 in 57 theaters. Do Not Disturb only managed an average of $855 in two theaters.

This past week also saw milestones reached for a few Per Theater Chart alumni:

  • From Up on Poppy Hill got to $1 million after three months of release. It became the first GKIDS release to reach that milestone.
  • Love is All You Need also got to $1 million, but it has a chance of getting to $2 million, not a good chance, but a chance nonetheless.
  • Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani topped $3 million just before the weekend. It might get to $4 million, but that is far from a sure thing.
  • Before Midnight got to $2 million early in the weekend and $3 million by the end of the weekend. It will get to $4 million shortly, even though its per theater average took a major hit during its semi-wide expansion.
