Even though Uncut Gems had strong competition with Disney’s Rise of Skywalker, the former of the two films managed to maintain the highest screen average for two consecutive weeks. The new thriller by the Safdie brothers has managed to score $ 1 million on only five screens, which gives it an average of $ 46,496 per screen, compared to $ 40,000 for Star Wars.
For the most part, the vast majority of independent movie theaters chose not to go out this weekend due to Disney’s crazy competition, that way, they might have a better chance of scoring solid Christmas ticket sales .
Dabangg 3, a Hindi action comedy, was screened on 294 screens and grossed $ 1.11 million for an average of $ 3,793 per screen. Films like A Hidden Life did not perform as well on its second weekend.
According to some sources, the new Terrence Malick film lasts three hours and deals with difficult content and themes, in other words, it is not as marketable to a large audience. The film only made $ 250,000 on 106 screens and grossed $ 2,350 on average.
As previously reported, Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker performed as planned this year, reaching around $ 190 million during its opening weekend, making it one of the most marketed films this year. .
However, so far the film has received bad reviews from official film critics, although the audience score tends to be better. Uncut Gems, on the other hand, is another critically acclaimed film starring Adam Sandler, who made a startling revelation earlier this year.
During a conversation with Brad Pitt, the actor asked him if it was true or not that Adam Sandler had had a beer with the professor who told him that it would be better to stop playing and let. His acting teacher told Sandler one evening that he “didn’t have it”, and it would be better to drop by instead.
Sandler met him again after catapulting him to stardom, and rather than rubbing him in the face, Sandler allegedly introduced his teacher to his friends saying that he was the only teacher who bought him a beer.
