Sony Pictures Classics has announced that they will expand Woody Allen’s "Blue Jasmine" from 229 to over 1,200 screens nationwide this weekend.  This surpasses the screen count of "Midnight in Paris" (at its widest 1,038), making "Jasmine" the widest release of any Woody Allen film.

 
So far, the film has taken in $9,943,025 at the box office since opening in limited release on July 26th to a staggering $102,011 per-theater-average from 6 theaters, a better average than "Paris" opened with.

"Paris" -- which ends up with $56.8 million to become Allen's highest grossing film ever -- grossed $4.9 million in its widest weekend for a $4,706 average. If "Jasmine" can manage that number, it's sitting pretty.
