Penguin Bloom came through with $1.51m on its first weekend to take top spot, running on 398 screens in 300 cinemas. The opening day box office was $289k, so the total right now is running $1.70m. The Dry did significantly better with $2.61m on its first weekend so Penguin Bloom may have more trouble reaching $10m as the holidays finish and more films arrive to compete.
But there has been doubt in the exhibition sector about Penguin Bloom because pre-release opinion is a bit divided. We may find the picture doing better in its second weekend, if it gets the right word of mouth.
