Surfer Overshadows Limited Releases on Per Theater Chart

June 19th, 2007

Only one new release topped $10,000 on the per theater chart this week, and only two films in total were able to do that. That new release was the overall box office leader, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, which pulled in an average of $14,663. The only holdover was 12:08 East of Bucharest with $10,108 in its lone theater.

No new limited release was able to come close to the $10,000 per theater average with Eagle vs. Shark coming in at $6,787 and Gypsy Caravan very close behind with $6,739. Jhoom Barabar Jhoom and Fido crossed $5,000 on the per theater charts at $5,485 and $5,102 respectively. Strike came relatively close to that mark with an estimated $4,500, but the rest of the limited releases all flopped. Lights in the Dusk took in $2,757, Blood and Tears earned $2,201, and Unborn in the USA managed just $1,036. The rest of the new releases all failed to reach $1,000 with MacBeth earning $644, Beyond Hatred at $534, and The Trials of Darryl Hunt at a mere $310.

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

  • Avenue Montaigne reached $2 million over the weekend, but that's as far as it will go.
  • The Valet also reached $2 million and will also go no further.
  • Once made it to $2 million very early in the weekend and is already more than half way to $3 million.
  • Black Book topped $4 million, which is strong for a foreign language film, but $5 million is out of reach.
  • On the other hand, Away from Her, which also reached $4 million over the weekend, could top $5 million before its run is over.
