The overall box office leader, Furious 7, was also the leader on the per theater chart earning an average of $36,763. That's the third best average for a 2015 release, with While We're Young still earning top spot on that chart. Speaking of While We're Young, it was the only other film in the $10,000 club earning an average of $14,226 in 34 theaters. Sometime this weekend, it will have reached its first major milestone.

As for the rest of the new limited releases, they landed in a wide range of averages. The best of the rest was 5 to 7, which earned an average of $9,003 in two theaters, while Woman in Gold was relatively close behind with an average of $8,107 in just over 250 theaters. David and Goliath earned an average of $5,203 in 31 markets. There was a three-way logjam between $4,000 and $5,000. Let's Get Married came out on top with an average of $4,639 in 39 theaters. Lambert and Stamp was only playing in three theaters earning an average of $4,496. Detective Byomkesh Bakshy opened with an average of $4,130 in 83 theaters. Boychoir was not as strong with an average of just $2,291 in 22 theaters. On the very bottom of the list is The Living, which earned just $74 in its lone theater. This is not the worst opening weekend average we've recorded. That would go to The Worst Movie Ever!, which sold one ticket over the weekend earning $11 in total.

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

  • '71 got to $1 million since this time last week. It won't get to $2 million, but this is still good for a limited release.
  • Wild Tales reached $2 million over the weekend. It has a shot at three million, but it has also peaked at the box office, so it might start collapsing costing the film a shot at one more milestone.
