The Jennifer Lawrence- Bradley Cooper-starring Silver Linings Playbook may already be getting Oscar buzz, and it looks like box office reports from this weekend reflect that. According to Deadline, the film pulled in an impressive $458,430 between 16 theaters, making its per-theater average about $28,652. The film, which stars Lawrence and Cooper as two troubled individuals who develop a sort of friendship, will widen its release to 440 theaters over Thanksgiving, before eventually growing to more than 2000 locations by the end of the year.
Fellow Oscar frontrunner and other new indie release, the Keira Knightley-starring Anna Karenina, also did well on its first weekend out in the US, pulling in much of the, as a Focus Features rep told Deadline, "core art house adult patrons." The film ended the weekend with a total of $315,395 from 16 theaters, which is addition to the $10.6 million it's already earned internationally so far. Like Silver Linings, it will also expand its release to 11 more screens over Thanksgiving.
