iW NEWS | Weekend Estimates: "Man On Wire" Does the Specialty box office High Flying Act

Indiewire By Indiewire | Indiewire July 27, 2008 at 10:28AM

James Marsh's doc "Man on Wire" headed the specialty-focused iW BOT over the weekend, according to indieWIRE Box Office Tracking (iW BOT) estimates from Rentrak this afternoon. The Magnolia release managed an enviable $48,000 on two screens ($24,000 average). Fellow Sundance '08 alum "American Teen" by Nanette Burstein, meanwhile, opened on five screens, averaging $8,600 from an estimated $43,000 gross. Miramax's "Brideshead Revisited" launched at 33 locations, averaging $10,061 from a $332,000 weekend take, while the Weinstein's "Boy A" scraped together $11,405 from two venues ($5,702 average). Last week's specialty topper "Transsiberian" took in $26,508 on two screens, averaging $13,254, an approximately 23 per cent decline from it's opening. And Sony Classics' "Baghead" grossed $17,208 from seven locations, for a $2,458 average, while "Lou Reed's Berlin" crooned to a $4,067 weekend take from two screens for a slow $2,034 average, a decline of about 50 per cent from the previous week. indieWIRE will publish its weekly box office column Monday night and final weekend numbers for specialty and limited release films on Tuesday.
