iW NEWS | Weekend Estimates: "Django" Leads Again

By Indiewire | Indiewire September 7, 2008 at 7:07AM

According to indieWIRE Box Office Tracking (iW BOT) estimates from Rentrak this afternoon, First Look's "Sukiyaki Western Django" led the reporting specialty films for the second weekend in a row. Directed by Takashi Miike, the film $5,094 on one screen, for the highest per-theatre average in a very weak weekend on both studio and specialty fronts. Two Sony Pictures Classics titles were next, "I Served The King of England," which grossed $72,109 on 17 screens for a $4,242 average in its second weekend, and Courtney Hunt's "Frozen River," which grossed $314,795 on 91 screens for an impressive sixth weekend average of $3,459. The weekend's sole reporting opener, Roadside Attractions' "Everybody Wants To Be Italian," grossed a weak $217,770 on 98 screens, averaging just $2,222. But that's certainly better than the second wide weekend for Focus Features' "Hamlet 2." It grossed just $819,409 from 1575 screens. Its $520 average was the third lowest of any film reporting, studio or specialty. indieWIRE will publish four-day estimates Monday and its weekly box office column Tuesday night.
