Vertical entertainment Four good days won the highest total over Mother’s Day weekend. It was a remarkably slow three-day specialized box office streak with the drama starring Glenn Close and Mila Kunis being the only film to break the $ 200,000 Mark.
But Four good days grossed nearly $ 100,000 less than its opening weekend, the Rodrigo García-directed film has returned $ 618K over the past 2 weeks and expanded to 489 theaters. The average per screen dropped to $ 444 after opening at $ 1,017 per screen last week.
David Oyelowo made his directorial debut this week with Water man, distributed by RLJE Films. The sci-fi adventure tale, which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year, tells the story of a boy who seeks to save his mother’s life by finding a capable mythical creature to cheat death. Oyelowo also stars alongside Rosario Dawson and Lonnie Chavis.
Water man opened to lukewarm reception with an 80% RT score and a 68 on Metacritic. He made soft figures magnifying about $ 183K with an average of $ 588 per screen over 311 passes.
Among Oscar holders, winner for best actor The father notably broke the $ 2 million cume marks this weekend bringing in a few dollars less $ 61K. A24 Minari is in the same boat because he also returned $ 60,000. The six Oscar-nominated films need one more weekend to break the $ 3 million mark.
Best film winner Nomadland broke the $ 3 million cume. Searchlight is still not reporting any estimates, but according to industry estimates, the Chloe Zhao-directed film could soon exceed $ 3.3 million. Nomadland is the Oscar winner for Best Least Profitable Picture at the box office by beating the winner for Best Picture 2009 The Hurt Locker.
