It wouldn't be an Apple-related launch if it didn't come with records. The film "Steve Jobs", which began hitting American theaters last Friday (October 9), had a gross revenue of more than $ 130,000 per room over the weekend, the highest average in 2015 and the 15th highest in history.
The number is not only the record of the year so far, but has surpassed the previous one by hand. In its debut, the film "Sicario" exceeded $ 67,000 per room. In whole 2014, according to Vanity Fair, only four films hit $ 100,000: “The Grand Budapest Hotel”, “Birdman”, “The Imitation Game” and “American Sniper”.
The limited debut was a choice of Universal Pictures itself, to generate buzz. Next weekend, the film will reach 60 more cinemas, only being released nationally in the United States (in more than 2,000 cinemas) on October 23. In Brazil, it will debut on January 21, 2016.
According to deadline, this is the best debut of director Danny Boyle's career.
