After some quiet weeks on the arthouse scene, Jane Eyre and Kill the Irishman did their part to liven things up a bit. Jane Eyre posted the year's top per-theater average for an opening weekend, while Kill the Irishman marked a new high for distributor Anchor Bay Films with the second highest B.O. per screen in 2011.

Vincent D'Onofrio's star rating has risen these past two weeks!
