Sony Pictures Classics continued to belatedly benefit from its nominations on this slow Oscar weekend, with foreign language film nominee "No" -- directed by Pablo Larraín and starring Gael Garcia Bernal -- expanded from 4 to 6 screens in its second weekend and found the best per-theater-average of any film in release. "No" took in $82,354 for a $13,726 average. Its total now stands at $194,636. Sony Classics will expand "No" in the coming weeks, though it's unlikely to benefit from a win tonight. "No" is likely to lose out to another Sony Classics release, "Amour," which also had a strong weekend. In its 10th frame, the Michael Haneke-directed film went from 306 to 328 screens and jumped 16%, taking in $816,468 (its best weekend yet) to bring its total to $5,247,524. Given its good chance at winning at least one (if not two or three) trophies tonight, "Amour" has an excellent shot at doubling that gross in »
