Great box office for FINDING NEVERLAND's opening weekend!

Box Office Prophets reports that FINDING NEVERLAND “got off to a fabulous start” on its opening weekend: “FINDING NEVERLAND, starring Johnny Depp, grossed a wonderful $241,000 from only eight venues, earning an average of $30,125.” This is very good news for cash-strapped Miramax and for Depp fans everywhere, since it shows wide audience interest in the film . . . . In related news, Variety reports that Miramax will expand FINDING NEVERLAND,which has been running on only 8 screens in New York and Los Angeles, to “about 20 markets Friday for a total of about 60 to 70 screens, with another push planned for Thanksgiving.” If you live in or near a major North American city, you may be able to see FINDING NEVERLAND this weekend! The film will open “wide” on 2,000+ screens the following week. Thanks to DeepinDepp for the box office updates.

More good news: Sleepy notes that Associated Press is reporting that FINDING NEVERLAND “earned the best exit polls in distributor Miramax Films’ history.” When you consider the great films Miramax has released in the past, that’s very high praise for FINDING NEVERLAND!
