As the John Keats romance Bright Star continues to play in about 80 markets (total gross $4.2 million), Apparition is upbeat over the modest success of its third release (a service deal with Sony Worldwide Acquisitions Group), Troy Duffy's Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day, which continues to expand with 125 more screens this weekend. So far it has grossed $1,247,352 total.
