No One the Best on Per Theater Chart

July 15th, 2008

Tell No One showed strength during its expansion, which helped it take first place on the per theater chart with an average of $13,088 in 19 theaters. The overall box office leader, Hellboy 2 - The Golden Army, was the only other film to top $10,000 on the per theater chart with an average of $10,780.

The rest of the new releases included a trio of films that finished with nearly identical averages starting with The Exiles and its opening weekend box office of $8,448 in one theater. Meanwhile, Days and Clouds opened in 2 theaters with an average of $8,354 while August opened in just 1 with $8,092. Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired was not as lucky earning just $4,613 in its lone theater. Harold made just over $10,000 in 3 theaters for an average of $3,526, which suggests a short run, but at least is was above the Mendoza Line. Three films were not as lucky. Death Defying Acts earned an average of just $1,781 in 2 theaters, which was just ahead of Garden Party's average of $1,554. Rounding out the list of new releases was with an opening of $1,245 in its single theater.

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

  • The Fall made it to $2 million more than a month after it reached $1 million.
  • Likewise, it has been a while since Priceless reached $1 million, but after more than three months of release, it finally hit $2 million.
  • As expected, Mongol topped $4 million over the weekend, and it has a slim shot at hitting $5 million by this time next week.
  • Finally, Kit Kittredge: An American Girl held up better than expected hitting $10 million over the weekend. Given its struggles during its semi-wide expansion, I had my doubts about its chances of reaching $10 million in total. As it is, it should reach $15 million, but not much further.
