Specialty Box Office: 'While We're Young' Expands Strong; 'It Follows' Holds Tight In Wide Release

fb.indiewire.com – Noah Baumbach's "While We're Young" continued to suggest its potential as one of 2015's first specialty breakouts in its second weekend. The A24 release expanded from 4 to 34 theaters and jumped 117%, taking in $493,000 for a very healthy $14,500 per-theater-average. That's the best second weekend average of Baumbach's career, topping "Frances Ha," "Margot at the Wedding" and "The Squid and the Whale" -- all of which averaged around $10,000 in a similar amount of theaters. 3 years 18 weeks ago via brucelee

Specialty Box Office: David O. Russell's Shelved 'Love' Bombs; 'It Follows' Keeps Scaring Up Dollars

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. 3 years 20 weeks ago via brucelee

Specialty Box Office: 'It Follows' Scares Up 2015's Best Indie Debut

fb.indiewire.com – David Robert Mitchell's indie horror flick "It Follows" rode rave reviews to find the best per-theater-average of any 2015 release so far ("American Sniper" and "A Most Violent Year" both topped it, but they are both technically 2014 films). In four theaters, the RADiUS-TWC release -- which premiered back in Cannes last May -- managed a fantastic $163,000 gross, averaging $40,750 per theater. 3 years 21 weeks ago via brucelee

Specialty Box Office: 'Grey Gardens' Re-Release Tops Debuts

fb.indiewire.com – In an eerie coincidence, Janus Films' release of a restored version of Albert and David Masyles' landmark documentary "Grey Gardens" ended up coinciding with the death of Albert Masyles. Which gave New York City audiences a perfect opportunity to pay tribute to the filmmaker forty years after "Gardens" first hit screens. 3 years 22 weeks ago via donnieyen

Specialty Box Office: ''71' and 'Maps' Debut As Oscar Winners Try and Cash In

fb.indiewire.com – Yann Demange's "'71" and David Cronenberg's "Maps To The Stars" -- both fixtures on the festival circuit for some time now (in the case of "'71" it's been over a year) -- were the most high profile debuts in a specialty market still crowded with Oscar-fueled leftovers from 2014. UK imported war drama "'71" -- which stars breakout actor Jack O'Connell ("Unbroken") -- debuted in 4 theaters this weekend care of Roadside Attractions and Black Label Media and took in a solid $60,100, averaging $15,025 per theater. 3 years 23 weeks ago via jetli
