iW NEWS | Weekend Estimates: "Lucky" Leads, Guy Beats Madonna

By Indiewire | Indiewire October 19, 2008 at 8:21AM

According to estimates from Rentrak this afternoon, Mike Leigh's "Happy-Go-Lucky" led indieWIRE Box Office Tracking (iW BOT) - which ranks the per theater average of all reporting specialty films. The Miramax release averaged $12,222 in its second weekend, grossing $110,000 from 9 locations. The top specialty opener that reported estimates was Caroline Suh's "Frontrunners," which grossed $7,364 on 1 screen for Oscilloscope Pictures. Other openers included Magnolia Pictures' "What Just Happened?," which grossed $216,000 on 36 screens for a decent $6,000 average, and IFC Films' "Filth and Wisdom," which grossed $5,149 from its one run. While certainly not a horrible number, Madonna's "Filth" lost the battle of the dueling soon-to-be-ex-spouses, as Guy Ritchie's "RockNRolla" averaged $5,955 from 22 screens in its second weekend out. indieWIRE will publish its weekly box office column Monday night and the full iW BOT Tuesday afternoon.
