‘My Zoe’, ‘Safer At Home’ And ‘The Vigil’ Post To Specialty Box Office; ‘Minari’ Surpasses $250K

·3-min read

Written, directed and starring Julie Delpy, the family drama My Zoe from Blue Fox Entertainment hit theaters this weekend before dropping on VOD on May 25. As the big banner and specialty box office attempt to find its footing as restrictions of the pandemic lift at a cautious glacial pace, the film managed to add some coin to its box office till, earning an estimated $32,506 for its opening weekend in 237 theaters.

Also reporting numbers for their opening weekends in the specialty box office space are a pair of thrillers starting with the pandemic-themed feature Safer At Home from Vertical Entertainment. The thriller hit 79 theaters in its debut and banked an estimated $41K — not too shabby. The Vigil, an IFC Films supernatural horror that is steeped in ancient Jewish lore, opened in 55 theaters and earned $25K. Another healthy number for an opening considering the circumstances.
