Box Office Shakedown

The big news in the weekend box office is that Stephen Chow's KUNG FU HUSTLE opened with $293,025. That's on seven screens. Yep, seven. That's a per screen average of $41,861. To put it in perspective, Tartan's OLDBOY opened two weeks ago with a per screen average of around $14,000 and people sat up and took notice. SAHARA, which opened on 3,154 screens and had a per screen average of $5,866. HUSTLE is set to expand to lots more screens on April 22. Sony has done right by KFH and it's nice to see them rewarded for it.

For now, the full box office report will come on Tuesdays, since Monday is a little early to get full numbers.
