Youssef Delara and Michael D. Olmos' "Filly Brown" and David Boyd's "Home Run" each scored this weekend with semi-limited debuts. Both films ended up in the overall top 15 with screen counts under 500, grossing $1.3 million and $1.6 million, respectively."Brown" -- which Indomina bought back at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival before partnering with Pantelion (a division of Lionsgate) for the release -- debuted on 188 screens. Starring Gina Rodriguez and recently deceased Mexican-American singer Jenni Rivera (who died in a plane crash this past December), the film managed an impressive $1,363,000 gross, averaging $7,250. Its the final film released (at least in part) by Indomina, which announced it will cease North American distribution earlier this year.
