Interestingly, "Jackass Number Two" actually improved in the numbers this week. Sitting at #35, it made $110,000 for the week and went up 75%.
"Bobby" the new film about Bobby Kennedy, came in at #41, made $67,000, playing on only two screens. However, this means that it's per-screen average was a staggering $33,500. As soon as this goes into wide release, we are sure it will jump in the numbers. And with Anthony Hopkins in it, can you smell a little gold dude named Oscar yet?
