As the weeks go by and the pandemic begins to lift at a very, very frigid pace, we hear more coins dropping into the specialized box office bank.
Edward Hall’s adaptation of Noel Coward’s play Blissful spirit is one of the few films that made its way to theaters and digital this weekend. IFC Films’ photo starring Dan Stevens, Isla Fisher, Leslie Mann and Judi Dench had a remarkable opening in 239 theaters across the United States, earning around $ 98,100. The film also managed to reach Apple Movies’ indie charts. He also beat the top five of the top 10 in the comedy section. Not too bad.
“Counter-program comedy Blissful spirit clearly established a connection with audiences on all platforms this weekend, ”said Arianna Bocco, President of IFC Films at the opening of the film. “We are looking forward to an ethereal race.”
