Joel & Ethan Coen's "Inside Llewyn Davis" was off to a fantastic start last night, taking in $123,340 from just 4 theaters. That made for a $30,385 daily per-theater-average, and puts the CBS Films-released film -- which got the Coens some of the best reviews of their career -- on track for a $80,000-$90,000 weekend average.

That would make it the third best limited debut of the year after "Blue Jasmine" and "Spring Breakers," and give the Coens their highest per-theater average ever (topping "No Country For Old Men"). It also will more than double the recent opening averages of "Dallas Buyers Club," "Philomena" and "Nebraska."
