The re-cut's per-screen-average just beat out the opening of Tony Gilroy's George Clooney starrer "Michael Clayton, which drew a potent $704,000 on just 15 screens, averaging $46,933. Other openers included IFC First Take's "Finishing The Game," which managed $13,867 on 1 screen, First Run's "For The Bible Tells Me So," which took in $7,505 on 1 screen, Jake Paltrow's directorial debut, "The Good Night," averaging $6,354 on 2 screens, documentary "Kurt Cobain: About a Son," averaging $5,628 on 2 screens and the much-buzzed "My Kid Could Paint That." which took in a mild $4,041 on each of its 7 screens. Among holdovers, Wes Anderson's "The Darjeeling Limited" expanded very nicely, taking $552,867 from 19 screens for an average of $29,099, Ang Lee's "Lust, Caution" took in $21,696 from each of its 17 screens and Sean Penn's "Into The Wild" averaged a potent $10,333 on 135 screens in its third weekend.
