Game, Set, Match - Updated

January 3rd, 2006

Match Point was the clear winner on this week's per theatre average charts, as it earned nearly $400,000 in just 8 theatres for an average of $49,824. The second placed film, The New World, was well back with an average of $19,383 during its first full weekend of release. The Matador, which was the only other new film of the weekend, earned $69,000 in 4 theatres for a per theatre average of $17,275. Last week's number one film, Cache (Hidden), slipped to fourth place with a still healthy $14,532. Brokeback Mountain climbed back above the $10,000 market with $3.6 million in 269 theatres for an amazing average of $13,455 during its fourth week of release. Lastly, Casanova made $400,000 in 37 theatres during its first full weekend of release for an average of $10,963.

This past week also saw milestones reached for a few Per Theatre Charts alumni:

  • The Squid and the Whale reached $5 million over the weekend, but will need to have a strong showing during the awards season if it is to make it much further.
  • Brokeback Mountain hit $10 million late in the week, and is poised to hit another milestone this weekend.
  • Munich made it to $10 million early in the weekend and reached $15 million by Monday. However, that should be the last milestone it reaches before going wide.
