Independent Box Office: James Gandolfini's 'Enough Said' Picks Up Steam


By Todd Cunningham

Enough Said, one of the late actor James Gandolfinis final movies, did very well in its second week expansion at the specialty box office this weekend.

The dramatic comedy, written and directed by Nicole Holofcener and co-starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus, brought in $2.1 million after Fox Searchlight expanded it from four theaters to 227 locations. Thats an impressive $9,317 per-screen average the best of any film in release for the second week in a row and ups the films domestic total after 13 days to $2.5 million.

Enough Said has drawn rave reviews from critics, earning a 93 percent on Rotten Tomatoes.

It is a very well written film which appeals primarily to the under-served adult audience, said Fox Searchlights distribution chief Frank Rodriguez Sunday. However we are beginning to see a wider and somewhat younger demo of moviegoers becoming fans of the film. This is evidenced by the strong showing in suburban theatres and upscale multiplexes nationwide.

Enough Said nearly cracked the national top ten, finishing 11th just behind Lee Daniels The Butler. The plan for next weekend is to expand into 400-450 theaters.

Entertainment One opened the horror thriller We Are What We Are in single theaters in New York and Los Angeles and the two locations brought in $15,081, or $7,540 at each.
