"Hyde Park on Hudson"
"Hyde Park on Hudson" (Focus) - Week 6

$705,000 in 246 theaters (+24); PSA: $2,866; Cumulative: $4,289,000

Expanding a bit more, the gross fell 32%, which shows that despite this film's overall disappointing performance compared to original expectations (for its pedigree and festival showcasing) it still has found some real appeal with specialized filmgoers.

What comes next: Its nearly non-existant awards presence ends after the Globes tonight (Bill Murray is a Comedy/Musical actor nominee), but this still has more playoff potential before it finishes its run.

"Rust and Bone" (Sony Pictures Classics) - Week 8

$198,000 in 79 theaters (+39); PSA: $2,506; Cumulative: $1,135,000

Doubling its theater count to benefit from the anticipated but non-existent Best Actress nomination for Marion Cottilard, this still had modest success in its expansion.This is despite not being part of the Oscar race anymore one of the better grossing recent subtitled releases, due in large part to its star's popularity.

What comes next: With the lack of many new major specialized releases and other adult-oriented films having already had heavy viewing, this still could find further interest on its own.

Other films (weekend gross & cumulative)

"Anna Karenina" (week 9) - $221,000/$11,927,000

"Hitchcock" (week 8) - $88,300/$5,643,000

    Thanks for covering this. Is it a regular feature?

    Yes, just hitting the one year anniversary.

    When I walk by the IFC theater it's always advertising 56 UP. It would also make a lot more sense for 56 to come a half century after 7.
