Namesake Goes for Hat Trick

March 20th, 2007

Namesake was the top film on the Per Theater Chart for the second weekend in a row with an average of $17,440 in its 41 theaters. Second place went to the only newcomer in the $10,000 club, Hat Trick with $15,500 in its lone theater. The only other film to crack $10,000 was the overall box office leader, 300, which just managed that feat with $10,054.

Of the other new releases, The Wind That Shakes the Barley was the only one to do well, taking in $131,000 in 14 theaters for an average of $9,357. The rest all had terrible starts with Tortilla Heaven making an average of just $810, Nomad just $413, and Behind the Mask a tiny $384.

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

  • Namesake reached $1 million over the weekend and that is far from the last milestone this film will reach.
  • The Lives of Others hit $4 million and will reach $5 million before long.
