Bleecker Street was looking to capture the nonfiction zeitgeist of this spring and summers robust runs of popular documentaries like Wont You Be My Neighbor?, RBG and Three Identical Strangers, and it appears to have dazzled with its Tribeca premiere McQueen. Directed by Ian Bonhôte and Peter Ettedgui, the title about late British fashion sage Alexander McQueen grossed $96,928 in four theaters this weekend in its debut, an average of $24,232 per screen, a number that places it on par with the opening frames of the years other successful docs.
Summit Entertainment/Lionsgate also launched Carlos López Estradas dramedy Blindspotting with Daveed Diggs and Rafael Casal with 14 runs Friday. Over its three days, the Sundance-bowing feature is estimating a $332,500 take for a solid $23,750 per-theater average. Also planting firm roots with an exclusive opening-weekend run was Sundance Selects Far From the Tree, grossing $20,034.
Amazon Studios/Magnolias Generation Wealth played four theaters in its opening frame, grossing $33,602. Blue Fox Entertainment played three locations for Running For Grace, taking in $27,000, while Janus Films relaunched Wanda in a single location, good for $10,230.
A24 added runs for Eighth Grade in its second outing, taking in a robust $794,370 in 33 theaters for a robust $24,000 average. Amazon Studios expanded its Joaquin Phoenix-starrer Dont Worry, He Wont Get Far on Foot also in its second frame for $265,360 in the three-day frame. Annapurnas Sorry To Bother You, meanwhile, crossed eight figures in its third weekend from a weekend gross of $899,000.
