By Indiewire | Indiewire September 9, 2008 at 1:04AM

Claude Miller's "A Secret" led the iWBOT this weekend, which is based on per-theater averages reported by Rentrak Theatrical. Released by Strand Releasing, "Secret" grossed $37,135 on 3 screens for a $12,378 average. A trio of other newcomers followed with Chris Smith's "The Pool" grossing $7,736 on 1 screen for Vitagraph, Robert Cary's "Save Me" grossed $6,992 on 1 screen for First Run, and David Mackenzie's "Mister Foe" grossed $13,490 on 2 screens for a $6,745 average. Among holdovers, First Run's "A Jihad For Love" rounded out the iWBOT top five in its 16th weekend of release. The doc averaged $4,748 on 2 screens and its total now stands $95,700. Another doc, Zeitgeist's "Trouble The Water," also held up well. In its third week, the film grossed $41,900 on 9 screens for a $4,136 average and a $146,384 total. Other reporting openers, Jessica Yu's "Ping Pong Playa" opened mildly for IFC Films. On 9 screens, the film grossed $30,797 for a $3,422 average. The complete indieWIRE BOT will be available Tuesday at indieWIRE.com. Our regular weekly box office column will return next week. [Peter Knegt]
