Theater Averages: BvS Breaks Special's Yearly Average Opening at $39,134

March 30th, 2016

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice earned first place on the theater average chart for the weekend and for 2016 with $39,134. The previous record was $38,002 held by Midnight Special and was set last weekend. This week, Midnight Special had to settle for second place on the chart with an average of $20,003. Born to be Blue was the best new limited release earning an average of $15,395 in three theaters. The only other film in the $10,000 club was April and the Extraordinary World, which earned $11,413 in its lone theater.

We only have numbers for two other new limited releases. I Saw the Light did very well with an average of $9,094 in five theaters. Meanwhile, Valley of Love was okay with an average of $4,925 in two.

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

  • Thanks to a significant expansion, Eye in the Sky reached $1 million over the weekend and it still has room to grow.
  • Kapoor and Sons got to $1 million early last week and it is nearly at $2 million.
  • Hello, My Name is Doris expanded further and that helped it get to $2 million and $3 million over the weekend. It likely won't expand significantly beyond where it already is, but $4 million and $5 million are all but assured.
