‘Jackie’ Bows With Year’s 5th Best PTA – Specialty Box Office



Fox Searchlight’s Jackie launched with a solid start over the weekend, claiming the fifth best per theater average of the year. The Oscar-hopeful starring Natalie Portman as the iconic First Lady in the waning days of her reign in the White House grossed $275K in five locations in New York and Los Angeles. Sundance Selects had a decent start with French filmmaker Mia Hansen-Løve’s Things To Come, opening in three cities grossing over $30K.

“We are very happy this morning, I think it’s very encouraging,” said Fox Searchlight’s Frank Rodriguez Sunday. “Pablo Larraín captures [Jacqueline Kennedy] in a way that has never been done. I think our timing was perfect this weekend. There wasn’t a lot opening. We’re grabbing people of all ages and based on the audience during the Q&As, we were attracting a mixed crowd.”
