Fox Searchlight's big Sundance buy is so far looking like a smart move: "The Way, Way Back" -- which the distributor bought for $10 million at this year's festival - debuted in 19 theaters this weekend to very strong $525,000 gross. That made for a $30,263 average and suggested promising things for the film's future.
