Red Returns, But Blank also in the Black

April 12th, 2011

Red State continued its special engagement run earning $82,395 in one theater over the weekend. It has already earned $851,832 and will likely hit a major milestone, or two, before it has its official theatrical release. Blank City opened with $13,989 over the weekend and $21,412 since Wednesday, also in one theater. The Four Times was very, very close behind with $13,678 during its second weekend of release. Independent Spirit Award winner, Meek's Cutoff, was just able to grab a spot in the $10,000 club with an average of $10,021 in two theaters.

The rest of the new limited releases were pretty far back with The Bill Hicks Story earning just $5,872 in its lone theater. Henry's Crime earned an average of $4,363 in two theaters. Born to be Wild 3D opened in more than 200 theaters earning an average of $4,156, which is okay, considering its theater count. Meet Monica Velour earned an average of $3,719 in two theater. Thank You and It's Not You, It's Me were neck-and-neck with averages of $2,693 and $2,606 respectively. Meanwhile, To Die Like a Man and Ceremony were also neck-and-neck with $2,346 and $2,307 respectively.

This past week also saw milestones reached for a couple Per Theater Charts alumni:

  • Win Win had its best individual weekend haul, which helped it surpass $3 million at the box office. And while it likely peaked, it should have no problem getting to $4 million and $5 million relatively soon.
  • Speaking of $5 million, Jane Eyre reached that milestone over the weekend. It has a shot at $10 million, but it might be close.
