Sunshine Cleaning Cleans Up At Weekend Box Office

Sunshine Cleaning, which was written and directed by women and features Emily Blunt and Amy Adams, did so well in limited release this weekend that it will open in more locations across the country.

The film played in only four theaters in New York and Los Angeles this weekend, but with its $54,000 per screen average it has the highest per screen gross of a limited or wide release film this year. In the coming weeks more theaters will begin showing the movie in New York and Los Angeles and the film will expand to theaters across the nation. [Women & Hollywood]
