April 21st, 2015

Ex Machina remained in first place on the per theater chart with an average of $20,478 in 39 theaters. The only other film in the $10,000 club was Felix et Meira, which earned $15,018 in its lone theater.

Nearly all of the rest of the new limited releases struggled and many of them missed the Mendoza Line. The only exception was Full Moon in Paris, which opened with $5,040 in one theater. 1915 wasn't as strong with an average of $3,806 in eight theaters. Antarctic Edge: 70º South was close behind with $3,131 in its lone theater. True Story opened in more than 800 theaters earning nearly $2 million, but that's only good for an average of $2,347. Child 44 was also playing in too many theaters, 510 to be exact, but it performed even worse with an average of $1,219. Beyond The Reach was next with an average of $1,082 in 28 theaters. Mr. X earned roughly the same amount as Beyond The Reach, but was playing in 52 theaters, giving it an average of $579. Sadly, that wasn't the weakest film for the weekend. The Dead Lands only managed an average of $442 in three theaters.

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

  • Ex Machina surpassed $1 million after just two weeks of release. It will continue to grow.
  • True Story opened with more than $1 million and got to $2 million on Monday. However, its per theater average is low enough that it likely won't have great legs.
  • What We Do in the Shadows just made it to $3 million before the weekend. It won't get to $4 million, but this is still a very impressive run.
  • Danny Collins reached $3 million early in the weekend and it is nearly at $4 million. It likely won't get much further than that.
  • While We're Young got to $3 million and $4 million over the weekend. It should get to $5 million this upcoming weekend, but that's likely as far as it will go.
  • Woman in Gold topped $10 million before the weekend and $15 million over the weekend. It will soon become the biggest limited release hit of 2015.
