Specialty Box Office: Newcomers Drowned Out By 'Gravity' and 'Phillips'; Panetlion's Spanish Language Duo Keep It Coming
fb.indiewire.com As the studio box office continued to soar thanks to intelligent, Oscar-favored fare like "Gravity" (down just 21% in weekend two) and "Captain Phillips" (Tom Hanks' best opening in a half-decade), for once the smart options weren't necessarily at the art house. Which is perhaps felt in the fact that of the 8 new titles opening in limited release, not one scored a per-theater-average of over $8,000 (which both "Gravity" and "Phillips" did on over 3,000 screens). Of the newbies, the best per-theater-average came care of Roger Ross Williams' acclaimed doc "God Loves Uganda," which managed $7,300 from a single theater for distributor Variance Films.

Don't let the lower case letterings in his name fool you. He's quick and deadly with the headlines and he's always on target. His delivery could use more work though.
