‘The Skeleton Twins’ box office update

Posted on September 29, 2014 and filed under The Skeleton Twins

According to Deadline and The Hollywood Reporter, Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader’s dramedy The Skeleton Twins rocketed up the domestic box office chart in its third weekend, even with another flood of specialty film debuts. The movie placed No. 11 as it successfully expanded from 49 to 385 theaters. The critically acclaimed movie, directed by Craig Johnson, took in a strong $1.3 million for a cume of $2.4 million (last weekend, it placed No. 19).

“A big part of the film’s success is due to the fact that Bill and Kristen, as well as Luke and Ty, gave big support on the PR front. They did literally 20 or more talk show appearances between them, in addition to a ton of regional and online press,” said Roadside co-president Howard Cohen, adding that great reviews are likewise motivating people. Roadside said the feature had only a 25-percent drop in same theaters compared to the previous week. The Skeleton Twins, posting a theater average of $3,278, will continue expanding in the coming weeks.

Again, huge congrats to the team behind the film for their well-deserved success!
