The complete iW BOT chart has been posted with final numbers for the past weekend in theaters. As reported in yesterday's indieWIRE weekend box office article: "Into the Wild," actor-filmmaker Sean Penn's adaptation of the Jon Krakauer novel, earned $212,000 for Paramount Vantage. Its $53,000 per-screen average was tops on the iWBOT and Paramount Vantage's best debut since its 2006 global warming documentary "An Inconvenient Truth." "Helvetica," a look at global design culture, earned $8,599 from its exclusive, sophomore run at New York's IFC Center. Rounding out the iWBOT Top Five were director John Turturro's musical "Romance & Cigarettes," Sony Picture Classics' female ensemble drama "The Jane Austen Book Club" and IFC First Take's Arctic-set horror "The Last Winter."
