Box Office: Little Monsters, Ride Like a Girl and Promised

Parasite has sucked the arthouse world dry and hasn't finished. Ride Like a Girl is still out in a mad counter. Little Monsters is being unfairly dismissed.

Six weeks in and Ride Like a Girl is now a true stayer. The film reached a grand box office total of $1.52m last weekend, earning $1686/per off its 270 screens. It made $472,000 this weekend and dropped only 15% and was not pushed out by Halloween movies. Still a long way to true profit but very fine for a domestic feature.

Little Monsters, distributed by screen publication Filmink, has made $11,551 off 19 screens at $608/screen. Little sign of it catching fire which is an unfair result for an amiable, light hearted picture gifted by a wonderful female lead in Lupita Nyong’o.
