"To Rome With Love" (Sony Pictures Classics) - Week 8
$455,000 in 264 theaters (-118); PSA: $1,723; Cumulative: $15,126,000
Holding on in the late stages of its release, this Woody Allen film looks like it will end up with less than a third of the total for "Midnight in Paris."
What it means: It still is one of the top indie films of the year.
"Easy Money" (Weinstein) - Week 5
$17,600 in 7 theaters (+1); PSA: $2,514; Cumulative: $142,800
Still playing on fewer than 10 theaters, this Swedish thriller continues its consistent if mediocre performance.
What it means: Weinstein is not spending much on this, and has the English language remake still to come.
"The Imposter" (Indomina) - Week 5
$44.300 in 13 theaters (+5); PSA: $3,408; Cumulative: $168,300
The Sundance 2012 documentary widens more, still performing at an OK level.
What it means: Expect further expansion over the coming weeks as this continues to attract audiences.
"Intouchables" (Weinstein) - Week 12
$405,000 in 194 theaters (unchanged); PSA: $2,088: Cumulative: $9,348,000
Another week, another steady OK gross to add to the total (which includes $3 million alone from French Canada where the film was a hit on par with the rest of the non-US world).
What it means: This seems to have no end in sight. Whereever the ultimate US gross ends up, this is already a significant subtitled hit - the best since "A Separation" - and likely to top that.
"Moonrise Kingdom" (Focus) - Week 12
$625,000 in 447 theaters (-240); PSA: $1,398; Cumulative: $42,063,000
Not merely hanging around, but still adding solid numbers at the end of three months in release.
What it means: This performed at a level most distributors would have been thrilled with during awards season and the extra bounce that gives acclaimed films.
"The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" (Fox Searchlight) - Week 15
$180,000 in 184 theaters (-46); PSA: $978; Cumulative: $45,388,000
They keep coming back to the "Hotel" yet another week.
What it means: "Moonrise" keeps closing the gap, but it looks like this will end up as the year's top indie release so far by a small margin.
