The Holdovers:

Holdover Winner of the Weekend: All of these films can probably give distributors a reason to celebrate in one way or another, but arguably the biggest winner this time around is "Fading Gigolo," which had a very successful expansion to 100+ theaters, jumping 69% and holding onto an average north of $4,600. The John Turturro-directed film (with a rare acting appearance by Woody Allen in a non-Woody Allen directed film) is already the third highest grossing film in the three year history of Millennium Entertainment.

Holdover Loser of the Weekend:  We'll refrain of officially designating any of these films a "loser," though the second weekend grosses of "Blue Ruin" -- notably a big hit on VOD -- aren't worthy of "winner" status either.

Notable Milestones:

  • "The Grand Budapest Hotel" hit $50 million and is $1 million away from becoming Wes Anderson's highest grossing film ever.
  • "The Lunchbox" became the first foreign language release of 2014 to hit $3 million.
  • "Fading Gigolo" hit $1 million, as noted its one of only 4 Millennium Entertainment films to do so.
  • Outside the top 10, "Le Week-End" crossed the $2 million mark and "Enemy" hit $1 million.
