Mark Herman‘s “The Boy In The Striped Pajamas” led this past weekend’s iW BOT box office chart, which was published this afternoon. The Miramax release grossed $253,085 from 17 screens for an average of $14,887. Just behind was Zeke Zelker‘s “InSearchOf,” released through Independent Dream Machine, which grossed $12,608 from a sole screen in Allentown. The film overcome a note slapped on their poster, without their promotion that stated the film was for “mature audiences only” and that “no one under 18 permitted.” “This is basically telling people that they are about to see porn, which is furthest from the truth,” Zelker told indieWIRE. Rounding out the iW BOT top five were Anchor Bay‘s “The Alphabet Killer,” Peace Arch Entertainment‘s “JCVD” and Maya Releasing‘s “August Evening,” each finding averages in the $9-11,000 range. indieWIRE‘s regular Monday box office column will return next week.
