Julianne Moore and ‘Gloria Bell’ Dazzle Indie Box Office

Sebastian Lelio’s follow-up to the Oscar-winning “A Fantastic Woman” arrives on five screens this weekend

While “Captain Marvel” accounted for 75 percent of this weekend’s box office business, another woman was leading the way at the indie box office: Julianne Moore.

This weekend, A24 released Sebastian Lelio’s new romance film “Gloria Bell,” which stars Julianne Moore as a recent divorcee who flings herself into a new romance while enjoying Los Angeles’ nightlife. This is Lelio’s follow-up to his Best Foreign Language Oscar-winning film “A Fantastic Woman” and is a remake of his 2013 film “Gloria.” It has a 98 percent score on Rotten Tomatoes.

Released on five screens this weekend, “Gloria Bell” had a strong launch of $154,775 and a per screen average of $30,955. It’s the highest PSA of the weekend for limited releases, and the second-highest overall behind the $35,499 average for “Captain Marvel.”

Elsewhere, NEON/CNN Films’ “Apollo 11” expanded to 405 screens in its second weekend and grossed $1.3 million, ranking tenth among all films and earning a per screen average of $3,212. The acclaimed documentary now has a total of $3.7 million.

Roadside Attractions’ faith-based film “Run the Race” reached the $5 million mark in its third weekend, adding $607,745 from 753 screens for a total of $5.2 million. A24’s LSD nightmare “Climax” added $110,786 from 28 screens in its second weekend, averaging just under $4,000 and bringing its total to $280,672.

Finally, Best Picture winner “Green Book” added just under $2.5 million in its 17th weekend in theaters, bringing its domestic total to $80 million after passing $200 million worldwide earlier this past week.
