Specialty Box Office: Wes Anderson's 'Budapest Hotel' Has Grand, Record-Breaking Debut
fb.indiewire.com After a slow start to the 2014 specialty box office, leave it to Wes Anderson to turn things around in a grand fashion. His "Grand Budapest Hotel" opened in 4 theaters yesterday via Fox Searchlight this weekend, breaking the live action average record of another Anderson in the process (Paul Thomas, if you couldn't guess). "Grand Budapest" -- which stars Ralph Fiennes, Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Tilda Swinton, Adrien Brody and Jude Law, among many others -- was estimated to gross a stunning $800,000, which made for a $200,000 per-theater-average.
