Brad Anderson's "Transsiberian" led the specialty-focused iW BOT over the weekend, according to indieWIRE Box Office Tracking (iW BOT) estimates from Rentrak this afternoon. First Look's "Transsiberian" managed to take in $30,174 from 2 screens in its third weekend, averaging $15,087. This is actually a slight increase from last weekend's average. Close behind was the second weekend of James Marsh's "Man on Wire," which grossed $50,000 on 4 screens for Magnolia Pictures. The film averaged $12,500 and now stands at $135,000 going into next weekend's significant expansion. The highest opener that reported was Courtney Hunt's "Frozen River." The Sony Pictures Classics release took in $73,322 from 7 screens for a promising $10,475 average. The other two reporting openers were Alex Holdridge's "In Search of a Midnight Kiss," which averaged a decent $7,298 from 2 screens, and Ryuhei Kitamura's "Midnight Meat Train," which posted the lowest average of any reporting film, wide or limited, averaging just $314 from 102 screens. Among other sophomores, Julian Jarrold's "Brideshead Revisited" averaged $5,284 from 94 locations, while Nanette Burstein's "American Teen" averaged a rather disappointing $4,487 from 39 screens. indieWIRE will publish its weekly box office column Monday night and final weekend numbers for specialty and limited release films on Tuesday.
