Weekend #2: 500 Days of Summer at the Box Office
It’s doing well! I can only imagine 500 Days of Summer doing even better at the box office as more and more cities open. A lot of people are dying to have the film open closer to them.
“Summer” – a romantic comedy starring Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt – went from 27 to 85 screens and grossed $1,630,000, a 95% increase from last weekend. Its per-theater-average dropped a mild 33% to a still-fantastic $19,176. That’s the best second weekend of any specialty release this year, and suggests a very bright future as the film expands in the coming weeks. After just ten days in limited release, the Fox Searchlight release’s total stands at $3,004,000. — indieWIRE
