Written, directed and with Julie Delpy, the family drama My Zoe by Blue Fox Entertainment hits theaters this weekend before going on VOD on May 25. As the big banner and specialty box office struggle to find its place as the pandemic restrictions increase at a cautiously frosty pace, the film has managed to add some change to its cash register, earning an estimate. $ 32,506 for its opening weekend in 237 theaters.
A pair of pandemic-themed feature-starting thrillers are also bringing in numbers for their opening weekends in the specialty box office space. Safer at home by Vertical Entertainment. The thriller hit 79 theaters in its debut and racked up a rating $ 41K – not too bad. The vigil, an IFC Films supernatural horror steeped in ancient Jewish traditions, opened in 55 theaters and earned $ 25,000. Another healthy figure for an opening given the circumstances.
