    Not sure I understand. Are they trying to say the $11.1 million is the best? Because it was not so a little confused. Or are they talking about the per theater amount? If so, that might make sense because the reasoning would be if it opened to more theaters, they would have made a lot more. I do think I remember their per theater being excellent compared to most the others.

    nice write up!

    i thought they were saying the average per theater was the best, which also does not seem right.

    Well, I do remember people posting it and commenting on it a day or so after it started and pointed out how good the per theater amount was but I would have to see that chart again. That may be what they are referring to.
    Every other movie above hers opened in more theaters also.

    I am wondering about that best statement. It must be the average per theater.

    That is what they're talking about, but the numbers they're using are wrong. Hanna actually had the best Per Screen Average of a wide release last weekend.

    Either way, this is a nice little article.

    By $91/theater - pretty close. Although Hop, in it's 2nd week of release, took in $5890/theater. I saw numbers earlier that did have SS with the largest # so maybe they used those?

    Yeah, they were using the estimated numbers, but you're right the actual numbers put Hanna ahead of Soul Surfer by a tiny bit.

    That's what it says. Strange...far lower than all others with stated numbers.

    You know, it's kinda crazy to look at the budgets for some of those films. Gives a truer picture really. Look at Mars Needs Moms - huge budget and didn't bring in nearly enough. Soul Surfer should be able to pull in more than it's budget easily after a few weeks. There may still be some people (like me) that haven't been to see it yet. I had a death in the family this weekend and wasn't able to get out to see it. Seems like Soul Surfer would be a good easter movie - with the religious/inspirational themes.

    We finally had time to go see Soul Surfer - and it was FANTASTIC. We went to a 5pm showing and the theater was about 1/2 full - not bad for a mid-week, early movie. The movie was great and Carrie's part was much larger then I had anticipated. She (along with all the other actors) did a wonderful job. So glad I was able to squeeze it in!
