iW NEWS | Weekend Estimates: "Starting," "No Country" Strong; "I'm Not There" Modest

By Indiewire | Indiewire November 25, 2007 at 7:17AM

According to Rentrak, Todd Haynes' "I'm Not There" opened in 130 locations over Thanksgiving, averaging a modest $5,826 for a total $757,385 over the three-day weekend. Though certainly not a horrible outcome considering the film's challenging content and rather wide release, it failed to match the averages of Roadside Attractions' well-reviewed "Starting Out In The Evening," which took in $85,596 on 7 screens for a iW BOT topping $12,228 average per location, or the continued expansion of Joel and Ethan Coen's "No Country For Old Men," which held up very nicely on 860 screens, averaging $9,433 for a weekend total of $8,112,000. Expanding more cautiously, "Margot at the Wedding" also continued to impress, with the Noah Baumbach film averaging $10,914 on 35 screens. [Peter Knegt]
