On the same weekend “Sausage Party” broke records and “Suicide Squad” made the most money at the domestic box office, a Western heist indie starring Jeff Bridges as a Texas Ranger is the weekend’s top performer.
Averaging an estimated $18,500 per screen, CBS Films and Lionsgate’s “Hell or High Water” came in on top, beating “Sausage Party,” which had the second-highest per-screen average of $10,828.
Centered on a divorced father and his ex-con brother, “Hell or High Water” covers their desperate scheme to save the family farm.
The film grossed an estimated total of $592,000, clearly benefiting from a near-perfect Rotten Tomatoes score of 99 percent.
Thriller “Disorder” from IFC Films made $6,000 per screen from two locations, amounting to a $12,000 box office total. It also debuted this weekend on VOD.
The 26 Aries documentary “The Lost Arcade” made $7,500 from one location.
Meanwhile, the critically acclaimed dramedy from The Film Arcade, “Don’t Think Twice,” made a solid estimated $367,500 in its fourth weekend as it expanded into 70 theaters. Written and directed by Mike Birbiglia, who also stars, the domestic total for the film is now more than $1.2 million.
