A few headlines worth noting from this week's indieWIRE box office column:

- Andrew Herwitz of The Film Sales Company calls successfully opening "Live-In Maid" himself, rather than selling it to a buyer, "a very eye-opening experience." He says that if he had to make the decision today, he told indieWIRE writer Steve Ramos that he would have released "My Architect" himself, rather than selling it to New Yorker Films.

- James Lewis from Warner Independent tells Steve Ramos that the company is pulling back on its release of "Introducing the Dwights," which it acquired at Sundance. He said, "When there are only eight people in the auditorium at shows we have to pull out as fast as we can."
