Boyhood


In this week's Hit Or Miss column we look at this past weekend at your local art house.  Richard Linklater's "Boyhood" continues to be the Indie "It" film.  The IFC title added 204 theatres this week and finished just outside the overall Top 10, grossing $2.5 million, raising its overall cume to $7.5 million.  The film expands to 500 theatres this weekend.  

Woody Allen's "Magic in the Moonlight" continues its successful limited run, adding 48 screens and upping its weekend take to $770,000, with further expansion to follow in the coming weeks.  It's not certain how wide the film will ultimately go but I have a hard time imaging a release of over 1,000 theatres, as "Blue Jasmine" (1,283 theatres at its widest) and "Midnight in Paris" (1,038 theatres) were.  This should fall in the "To Rome With Love" vein (806 theatres).

Calvary

The main limited opener of the week was Fox Searchlight's Brendan Gleeson starrer "Calvary", which amassed $72,800 in its first 4 theatres.  The plan is to expand to 8 markets and expand in New York and Los Angeles this week.

Chef

Focus' "Wish I Was Here" expanded to 753 theatres and totalled $614,000 this past weekend, bringing its overall cume to a little over $3 million, Dinesh D'Souza's "America" added $375,000 increasing its total to $14.1 million, thereby making it the #6 political documentary film in history (yes, someone is actually keeping track of info like this).  Last but certainly not least, Open Road's "Chef" continues its savory run, adding $680,000, baking its overall take to a tasty $28 million (ok, I'm officially out of cooking metaphors so I'll stop there).
