Arthouse Audit: Barely-Limited 'Babies' Burps Loudest

Thanks to a huge Mother's Day bump, documentary Babies opened to $2.16 million, which represented the highest-grossing limited opening in over a year and a half. Holdovers City Island, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and The Secret in Their Eyes continued their decent limited runs, but new release Mother and Child was so-so and Casino Jack and the United States of Money failed to extort much cash from audiences in its debut. Distributor Focus Features' marketing positioned Babies as a Mother's Day event, and the picture did not disappoint on this front: while Babies fell outside of the Top Ten in its first two days, it experienced a 57 percent increase on Sunday to $1.09 million, which pushed it up to eighth place on the weekend chart. While Babies seems relatively high profile, it only opened at 534 locations, putting it just under the 600 theater threshold separating limited and nationwide releases. Babies's

Surprise: 'Babies' has a $1 million Mother's Day
Focus Features' strategy of releasing its adorably precocious documentary "Babies" on Mother's Day weekend has paid off.  Original box office estimates had "Babies" taking in only $1.5 million in 534 theaters.  Certainly a good haul for a documentary these days and against competition such as "Iron Man 2."  However, when the actuals came in this morning, Focus discovered "Babies" had made over $1 million on Sunday alone for a new weekend gross of $2.1 million and a $4,040 per screen average.  Traditionally, Sunday is the slowest day of the moviegoing weekend so this is quite an achievement for the indie release....

Sundance 2010: Buyers Purchase Twelve, Hesher and The Kids Are All Right

With Sundance wrapping up this weekend, buyers are finally picking up some of films that premiered at the Festival. In the last 24 hours, Joel Schumacher’s Twelve, Spencer Susser’s Hesher and Lisa Cholodenko’s The Kids Are All Right have been purchased by Hannover House, Newmarket Films and Focus Features.

I’ve seen two of the three films (Twelve and Hesher) and am not surprised that either sold. While I didn’t care for Twelve, it’s about upper East Side rich kids in New York City and it stars Chace Chawford from Gossip Girl - so it’s an easy sell. Hesher has an awesome performance from Joseph Gordon Levitt who has some great dialogue to work with. And The Kids Are All Right has a great cast featuring Annette Bening, Julianne Moore, Mia Wasikowska, Josh Hutcherson and Mark Ruffalo. The film is about two teenaged children conceived

Focus Features | 2010 Preview - Greenberg, Babies, The American, The Eagle of the Ninth, It's Kind of a Funny Story, Somewhere

Greenberg (March 26) Roger Greenberg (Ben Stiller), single, fortyish and at a crossroads in his life, finds himself in Los Angeles, house-sitting for six weeks for his more successful/married-with-children brother. In search of a place to restart his life, Greenberg tries to reconnect with old friends including his former bandmate Ivan (Rhys Ifans). But oldfriends aren't necessarily still best friends, and Greenberg soon finds himself spending more and more time with his brother's personal assistant Florence (Greta Gerwig), an aspiring singer and also something of a lost soul. Despite his best attempts not to be drawn in, Greenberg and Florence manage to forge a connection, and Greenberg realizes he may at last have found a reason to be happy. Babies (April 16) The adventure of a lifetime begins…Directed by award-winning filmmaker Thomas Balmès, from an original idea by producer Alain Chabat, this film simultaneously follows four babies around the world – from birth to first steps.

Get a Load of These 'Babies' ... Literally

From out of nowhere comes a movie I had not heard of and one that is sure to have at least half (if not more) of the RopeofSilicon audience going, "Awwwwww, how cute..." Yup, it's Babies, a new documentary from Focus Features arriving in 2010 and directed by Thomas Balmes. The film moves the audience from Mongolia to Namibia to San Francisco to Tokyo simultaneously, following four babies around the world - from first breath to first steps.

Today I received the poster and have just posted the trailer, both of which are included below. Like I said, I had not heard of this film, but thought it was a rather interesting concept. Check everything out directly below and get a larger look at the poster right here.

Super cute poster and trailer for @FocusFeatures’ Babies

The caption says “Everybody Loves… Babies.” It’s almost impossible to disagree with that little statement. With adorable smiles, pudgy bodies, and cute laughs – it’s really difficult to hate these tiny little things. If you aren’t into the arts of baby appreciating, check out the poster and trailer for Focus FeaturesBabies, which follows four babies simultaneously around the world (Mongolia to Namibia to San Francisco to Tokyo). Taken from the original idea by producer Alain Chabat, director Thomas Balmès captures the first breath to first steps of Ponijao (Opuwo, Namibia), Mari (Tokyo, Japan), Bayar (Bayanchandmani, Mongolia), and Hattie (San Francisco, California).
