[via Shadow & Act] It opened on 2 screens, 1 in Los Angeles and the other in New York; so how did the ensemble comedy/drama do over the weekend? The turnout in Los Angeles was much stronger than it was in New York, making over 3 times the box office the New York theater did! So what’s up NYC?
76% of its opening weekend box office came from the Los Angeles theater! That’s the bulk of it; and it’s for that reason (and others I presume) that the film has been extended for another week at the Citywalk Stadium 19 inUniversal City, CA. So you LA folks get another week to see the film (after this first week’s run, so it’ll go into next week).
Those of you in NYC who haven’t seen it will have until the 9th – this Thursday – to see it, and then, poof, it’ll be gone! In total, the film made $7,409. A long way to go… So if you’re even mildly curious about the film, you really should go see it, because you may not get another shot for awhile.
In the film, Hosea Chanchez plays a washed up rapper (think MC Hammer) who blames the fall of his career on his music video director best friend (played by Weaver). Here’s an exchange between Weaver and Chanchez’s character you WON’T see in the film!
