Ryan Coogler's "Fruitvale Station" had a huge first weekend of limited release, taking in $377,285 from just 7 theaters for a $53,898 per-theater-average. The winner of both the Grand Jury Prize and the audience award at this year's Sundance Film Festival, the film is based on the true story of a young black man (played by Michael B. Jordan) who was wrongfully killed by a police officer at a transit station in Oakland, California (it in many ways mirrors the case of Trayvon Martin, whose killer was controversially acquitted this weekend).
