‘The Skeleton Twins’ box office report

Posted on September 15, 2014 and filed under The Skeleton Twins

According to The Wrap, Kristen Wiig’s latest film, Sundance Film Festival award-winner The Skeleton Twins, got off to a fast start at the specialty box office this weekend. The drama starring Bill Hader and Wiig as long-estranged and troubled twins reuniting and putting each others’ lives back on track took in almost $411,000 from 15 theaters for a strong $27,383 per-theater average for Roadside Attractions and Lionsgate. That was easily the best of any film released this weekend. The film, directed and co-written by Craig Johnson, played in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco and Washington D.C.

The two stars, along with co-stars Luke Wilson and Ty Burrell, have been energetically promoting the film, which has an impressive 89 percent positive rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The Skeleton Twins won the Waldo Salt Screenwriting award at this past Sundance Film Festival, where Roadside Attractions and Lionsgate acquired the film. A Roadside spokesman said Sunday that The Skeleton Twins will open in the balance of the top ten markets next weekend, in advance of a nationwide release on September 26. Big congrats are in order to the entire cast and crew for the early success!
