While We're Young has set a new record for 2015 earning the best per theater average for a film that opened in 2015 with an average of $56,922 in four theaters. The most negative thing you can say about this result was that it wasn't that unexpected, as several Noah Baumbach films have earned similar opening weekend per theaters averages. Up next was the first of two wide releases in the $10,000 club, Home, with an average of $14,053. The Salt of the Earth earned an average of $11,234 in four theaters. This is excellent for a documentary. The final film in the $10,000 club was the second wide release on this week's list, Get Hard, which pulled in an average of $10,647.

The rest of the new limited releases earned mixed results. White God earned an average of $8,070 in two theaters. From Mayerling to Sarajevo opened with $5,247 in its lone theater. Man From Reno was weaker with an average of $3,790 in four theaters. Cupcakes and The Riot Club both opened in one theater each earning $2,570 and $2,188 respectively. The biggest limited release of the week, at least in terms of theater count, was Serena, which opened in 59 theaters. On the other hand, it missed the Mendoza Line with an average of just $1,696.

The only milestone this week was reached by What We Do in the Shadows, which topped $2 million over the weekend. This is very good for this type of film and the studio should be quite happy.
