While Disney is ruling the box office with Pixar’s “Inside Out 2,” it is also getting a win in the specialty market thanks to Searchlight Pictures and Yorgos Lanthimos, whose newest film “Kinds of Kindness” has the top theater average of 2024 with $350,000 from five theaters for a $70,000 average.

Filmed during post-production on Lanthimos’ Oscar-winning “Poor Things,” “Kinds of Kindness” sees the director do another round with the stars of that sci-fi film, Oscar winner Emma Stone and Willem Dafoe. But the film also marks a return to the bleaker, more darkly satirical stories that made Lanthimos a big name in world cinema prior to his mainstream success, as he reunites with longtime co-writer Efthimis Filippou.
