"LA MISMA LUNA" Breaks Box Office Records!

Fox Searchlight and the Weinstein Co. had the most to brag about the box office this past weekend, as their Under the Same Moon broke the record for the biggest opening of a Spanish language film in the U.S., grossing 2.6 million from 266 locations. Studios noted that it did well in heavily Latino markets and at art house theaters. Per play average was $9,774 and the cumulative gross since Wednesday is $3.3 million.

LA MISMA LUNA also opened over the weekend in Mexico, where it had the highest opening of a Mexican film in Mexico for 2007/2008.

A great, news-worthy post. When my wife and I were in line to see "Funny Games" (review and discussion will be posted on Cinema Squared very soon) in San Francisco, I was surprised and delighted to see how many people were going to see "Under the Same Moon." Nearly everyone in the line was going to see the film.

It is wonderful when any of these small, wonderful films finds its audience.
