New Releases have Limited Success on the Per Theater Chart

June 5th, 2007

Only three films were able to crack into the $10,000 club on the per theater chart. The only new release to do so was Knocked Up, which was barely able to reach that figure with $10,690. Second place went to The Golden Door with $10,169, while the overall number one film, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, earned third place with $10,134.

No new limited release was able to top $10,000, but at least Day Watch was able to come close with an average of $9,346 in five theaters. This is not nearly as strong an opening as the original managed, but better reviews could help its legs. Moviegoers didn't go crazy for Crazy Love, but its average of $5,984 was still solid. Ten Canoes was next with an mediocre $3,519. I' Reed Fish barely cracked $1,000 with $1,026, while Four Lane Highway and Rise: Blood Hunter failed to even reach that level with $955 and $942 respectively.

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

  • Once reached its first million dollar milestone, but it won't be its last
  • Paris, je t'aime also reached $1 million, but it did it late last week. Again, this film should have no trouble reaching more milestones, but it has also peaked at the box office.
  • Away from Her made it to $3 million over the weekend, but it will start shedding theaters, making $4 million harder to reach.
