Gotta love seeing that, right? Cosmopolis was the number 1 film per sreen average this past weekend for their US debut. Bringing in impressive figures on just 3 screens, Deadline‘s Specialty Box Office reported the following:
“Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis strong in debut…”
Cosmopolis launched its run in the U.S. and qualified as a master of the specialty universe – at least this weekend. After a blitz of media coverage worthy of a studio blockbuster, the David Cronenberg-directed, Robert Pattinson-starrer averaged a fairly impressive $24K-plus in three locations Stateside. The Cannes opener somehow failed to impress Canadian audiences when it opened in early summer (distributor Entertainment One reported its North American cume at $268,900, which includes Canada). Next week, eOne will add 20 markets in the U.S. followed by more at the end of the month.
