fb.indiewire.com – David O. Russell's long delayed "Accidental Love" (which had been known as "Nailed" for most of its troubled life) probably should have stayed shelved. Millennium released the film in 10 theaters this weekend and it took in only $4,500 -- averaging a pretty tragic $450 per theater. Made years before "Silver Linings Playbook" and "American Hustle," the film was written by Al Gore's daughter Kristin and stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Jessica Biel. 1 week 1 day ago via brucelee

Specialty Box Office: 'Wild Tales' Debuts Big; 'Shadows,' 'Still Alice' Strong In Expansion

fb.indiewire.com – Oscar-nominated foreign language film "Wild Tales" made an impressive box office debut, with Sony Pictures Classics timing the release to Oscar weekend itself. The Argentinian film grossed $85,100 from just 4 theaters, averaging $21,275. Exposure from tonight's ceremony should help nicely as "Tales" expands in the coming weeks (especially if it pulls off a win). Though it's one of the few specialty titles out there without Oscar nominations tied to it, Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi's "What We Do In The Shadows" had a very nice weekend anyway. 5 weeks 1 day ago via brucelee
