Patricia Rozema's "Kit Kittredge: An American Girl" looks to again lead the specialty-focused iW BOT in its second weekend, according to those films that submitted numbers to indieWIRE Box Office Tracking (iW BOT) estimates from Rentrak this afternoon. The Picturehouse release grossed $106,000 on 5 screens in its second weekend for a $21,200 average. Just behind was the opening weekend of Catherine Breillat's "The Last Mistress," which averaged an impressive $17,596 on 2 screens for IFC Films. The other reporting opener was IDP/Samuel Goldwyn Films' doc "Trumbo," which garnered a decent $28,500 on 3 screens for a $9,500 average. And both Werner Herzog's "Encounters at the End of the World" and Sergei Bodrov's "Mongol" held up well in expansion. "Encounters" averaged $6,011 on 9 screens for ThinkFilm while "Mongol" averaged $4,043 on 209 screens for Picturehouse, taking its total to $2,320,247. indieWIRE will publish its weekly box office column Monday night and final weekend numbers for specialty and limited release films on Tuesday.
