iW NEWS | Weekend Estimates: "Duchess" Leads, "Lucky" Bombs

According to estimates from Rentrak this afternoon, Saul Dibb‘s “The Duchess” led indieWIRE Box Office Tracking (iW BOT) – which ranks the per theater average of all reporting specialty films. In its second weekend, the Paramount Vantage released grossed $570,000 from 55 screens, averaging a potent $10,364. Just behind was the surprisingly strong performance of IDP/Samuel Goldwyn Films‘s Christian romance, “Fireproof.” The Kirk Cameron headliner grossed $6,513,996 on 839 screens, the second-highest gross for any debut on under 1000 screens this year. Fox Searchlight‘s “Choke” did not do quite as well. Grossing $1,335,000 on 435 screens, the Clark Gregg directed film averaged a relatively mild $3,069. Its relatively astounding, however, in comparison to Lionsgate‘s “The Lucky Ones.” The Rachel McAdamsTim Robbins starrer averaged just $425 from its 489 screens. indieWIRE will publish its weekly box office column Monday night and the full iW BOT Tuesday afternoon.
