iW NEWS | Weekend Estimates: "Mister" Box Office

While “Iron Man” kicked off the summer blockbuster season with an astounding $100.7 million opening weekend, Harmony Korine‘s “Mister Lonely” impressively led the specialty-focused iW BOT, according to indieWIRE Box Office Tracking (iW BOT) estimates from Rentrak this afternoon. The IFC release took in $19,133 on its one screen, outpacing two other decent openers, David Mamet‘s “Redbelt” and Garth Jennings‘ “Son of Rambow.” Sony Pictures Classics‘ “Redbelt” managed $68,646 from 6 screens for an average of $11,441, while Paramount Vantage‘s “Rambow” was just behind, averaging $10,600 on 5 screens. A less fortunate opener was Jeremy Podeswa‘s Holocaust drama “Fugitive Pieces,” which averaged $3,600 from 30 screens for IDP and Samuel Goldwyn. Among those holdovers reporting, Claude Lelouch‘s “Roman De Gare,” also distributed by IDP and Samuel Goldwyn, saw its average fall only $700 with $12,022, while the continued expansion of Tom McCarthy‘s “The Visitor” to 130 screens found a decent $663,000, for an average of $5,100 and a cume of almost $1.7 million after 4 weeks. Errol Morris‘s latest doc, “Standard Operating Procedure,” saw its average fall more than 60% in its second weekend, taking in $33,688 from 11 screens. indieWIRE publishes its weekly box office column on Mondays and final weekend numbers for specialty and limited release films on Tuesdays.
