Box Office Mojo tracked 107 movies in release this past weekend in the United States. TOKYO GODFATHERS finished #66, earning $18,530 for a per-screen average of $1,853. In other words, if it’s playing in your city, don’t delay in checking it out (advice I do well to take myself). The reviews have been wonderful, and non-critics like it too.
Other releases of note include CRIMSON GOLD, a well-reviewed Iranian drama, and SMALL VOICES, a terrific, family-friendly flick from the Philippines that is playing on two screens somewhere in America.
POSTMEN IN THE MOUNTAINS is playing at one location; is this the Chinese film? I’ll have to do some research.
