iW NEWS | Weekend Estimates: "The Fall" Leads

While “Speed Racer” became the first major casualty of the summer blockbuster season, new specialty releases also failed to significantly impress this weekend, with Tarsem‘s “The Fall” leading the specialty-focused iW BOT, according to those films that submitted numbers to indieWIRE Box Office Tracking (iW BOT) estimates from Rentrak this afternoon. Roadside Attractions‘ “The Fall” grossed $80,188 from 9 screens for a decent $8,910 average. Other openers included Bruce Burgess‘s doc “Bloodline,” which took in $6,200 from one screen for Cinema Libre. Fairing worse were two ThinkFilm openers, Bruce McDonald‘s Ellen Page starrer, “The Tracey Fragments,” which grossed $3,330 on one screen, and Henry Bean‘s “Noise,” starring Tim Robbins and Bridget Moynahan, which averaged just $2,025 on 2 screens. Among holdovers, Claude Lelouch‘s “Roman De Gare,” distributed by IDP and Samuel Goldwyn, continued to pull good numbers, grossing $64,000 from 15 screens for a $4,267 average and a $333,582 cume. Last week’s top two openers, “Mister Lonely” and “Son of Rambow,” switched places this week, with “Rambow” averaging $3,833 from an expanded 36 screens, and “Lonely” just behind with a $3,600 average, about a fifth of its opening average. Finally, Spring’s specialty breakout, Tom McCarthy‘s “The Visitor,” expanded to 217 screens and maintained a healthy average of $3,521, taking its total to over $2.5 million. indieWIRE publishes its weekly box office column on Mondays and final weekend numbers for specialty and limited release films on Tuesdays.
