Per Theater Chart: King Regains Crown

December 21st, 2010

It was a good week for The King's Speech, as it led the way for Golden Globe nominations and SAG nominations, while retaking top spot on the per theater chart. Despite expanding from 19 theaters to 43 theaters, its average fell just 20% to $25,515. This was twice as much as Tron: Legacy, which placed second with $12,758. The only other film to reach the $10,000 mark was Rabbit Hole at $10,756. This is not bad, but given the Awards Season Buzz, I was expecting more.

The only other new limited releases we have numbers for is Casino Jack at $4,933. That's lower than you would like to see from a film like this at this time of year.

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

  • The King's Speech earned more than $1 million over the weekend, which helped it top $2 million in total. (It will likely hit $3 million on Monday.)
  • Black Swan's per theater average might have dropped below $10,000, but it's running tally rose to $15 million over the weekend. This is more than it cost to make, and with plenty of Awards Season buzz, there's no doubt it will earn a lot more before it is done.
