“The Beaver” and the Box Office

"The Beaver" and the Box Office

Today is the day that Jodie Foster’s “Beaver” finally exposes itself to North America: In 22 theaters, to be exact. By Sunday we should know just how much effect Mel Gibson’s imploded public image has on whether or not people will pay money to see him on screen…

My prediction? A good-but-not-great $15,000 per-theater-average, but tougher times in expansion. The reviews are mixed-to-good – and curiosity seems decent – but neither seem quite strong enough to allow this “Beaver” to break out. Or maybe we’ll be surprised… Check with indieWIRE.com on Sunday afternoon for a full report.
