Arthouse Audit: 'Superman' Soars Higher...

11 October 2010 3:58 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Documentary Waiting for Superman continued its solid run over the weekend, expanding to 103 locations and easily topping all other limited releases. Never Let Me Go also added a substantial number of theaters and posted gains, while the excitement over Catfish seemed die down. A bevy of movies like Stone, Nowhere Boy, and Inside Job debuted, though they played in too few theaters to have much of an impact. Waiting for Superman earned $630,863 for a respectable per-theater average of $6,125. This was less than half of what An Inconvenient Truth was grossing at the same point in its theatrical run, though it's unreasonable to expect director Davis Guggenheim's latest project to be able to generate the same level of interest as his environmentalist documentary. Through its third weekend, Superman has tallied $1.41 million. Never Let Me Go added 124 theaters to bring its total to 167 and was up 85 percent to $345,741. While this was its best weekend yet, »

2 Clips From “GhettoPhysics: Will the Real Pimps and Hos Please Stand Up?”

10 October 2010 9:48 AM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

A couple of clips sent to us from GhettoPhysics, a docu-drama that reveals the truth about the timeless game of power, which has been written about already on this blog. The film opened in Atlanta, DC, Detroit, Philly, and San Francisco on October 8th, and goes wide on October 22.

Based on E. Raymond Brown’s novel Will the Real Pimps and Hos Please Stand Up: Peeping the Multi-leveled Global Game, the film uses interviews, staged scenes, and satire to shed light on how the interplay between pimps and prostitutes is simply a variation of the power dynamic that exists in broader social, political and corporate relationships we all experience.

As the synopsis reads: “From the street to the boardroom, from the Hood to the Oval Office, its the same. The only difference is that while the street Pimps wear colorful clothes, and the streets Ho’s wear little at all, »
