We haven’t been reporting much on the box office weekend results because there hasn’t been a lot to report. Some weekends, there is nothing at all to report because no new films were released.
But this past weekend, a bigger movie was released. And when we say “bigger” we just mean it had two recognizable leads.
The thriller ‘Let Him Go‘ starring Kevin Costner and Diane Lane was released this past weekend via Focus Features. It made a little over $4 million during its first three days.
That was obviously good enough for first place in the current market we’re living in. Focus also had the second place film, Come Play, which made $1.6 million, bringing its domestic total to $5.6 million.
The speciality division of Universal Pictures has been active during coronavirus in part because of a deal that its studio parent company inked with AMC Theatres. The pact enables Universal and Focus to release their movies in on-demand platforms within 17 days of their theatrical debuts. In return, AMC receives a cut of digital revenues.
We told you last week that the reviews for ‘Let Him Go’ were somewhat positive. Most critics saying it was just entertaining enough.
