Distributor A24 took writer-director David Michod‘s R-rated post-apocalyptic drama from five theaters to 599 in its second weekend, but it brought in just $500,000 for a very soft $835 per-screen average. That’s way down from the $13,860 it averaged in its first weekend.
“Unfortunately we were unable to find a broader audience this weekend, but have no doubt that the film will gain fans as we continue to push it out in the weeks and months ahead.”
The meager second-week numbers are a far cry from the sort Pattinson put up when he was starring as a heart-throb vampire in the $3.3 billion young-adult “Twilight” franchise.
But the numbers are still much better than the ones from his last indie film outing, David Cronenberg‘s “Cosmopolis.” That one flat-lined, topping out with less than $1 million domestically in 2012.
