Spring Breakers TOP Limited Release

breakererr


Via Indiewire: Though not yet showing an impact on a wider scale (an expansion is planned starting next Friday), A24’s SXSW hit ‘Spring Breakers’ from veteran indie Harmony Korine opened in three New York/ Los Angeles theaters to a stunning total of $95,000, by far the biggest limited opening of the year,

And likely to approach a $100,000 per screen average for the weekend. To give some indication of what a shock this gross is, none of Kormine’s previous films have grossed as much in their entire runs as this likely will do for it opening weekend.

Selena: ‘Spring Break is the craziest thing I ever experienced. I know we’ve never been on spring break, so I’ve never actually been to motel parties where you hop to each room. That’s what this was.

We would literally be doing takes, and we were surrounded by real spring breakers. We were kind of thrown into this whole thing and just, I’ve never seen anything like it. Literally, girls would be making out and their clothes would come off, and I was like, ‘Oh God, the bottoms!’ And then they’d come off. [I was thinking], I don’t even know what I’m doing here.

I am getting a little bit older, so I wanted to push myself and kind of get into a little bit more of an indie world. And it was a really great experience for me. And at the same time it has been, of course, a little awkward, but great. Honestly, it’s been a weird transition. You never really know what’s right or wrong and you can only do the best you can.”

    This movie does have really bad reviews on Twitter. They still got the money tho so they probably don’t care.

    Heard it sucks && it’s a waste of my money but I want to go see it because Vanessa && Ashley are hot!

    Most of the bad reviews on Twitter are from either Bieber fans who dislike Selena or people that should not have gone to see the movie in the first place. Everyone from the movie has said it was not for children and that there would be shocking elements. Selena has said many times to her fans it was not for the younger fans. Why would people go see a movie that is against everything they believe in? I saw the movie and I guess I am old enough to understand it and had an open mind with a good understanding of what I was about to see.

    the movie cost like 2 or 3 million. I read somewhere that in Europe did some money.i really don’t care about the reviews on twitter some of those people haven’t seen the movie and they still give it a bad review. I saw it last night in ny it was amazing and crazy. I really hope that Selena,Ashley and Vanessa can work together again. And for the people wondering yes there’s a 3 way and some one dies.

    They definitely tried for a limited release. Didn’t think they’d make half as much.. I guess there’s something to it outside of the girls flaunting their bikini bod.

    Might see it now.

    I thought it was an indie film? Why are they promoting it so much like its a commercial film- doesn’t make sense. If they really didn’t care about their revenue why are they over exposing the film so much that I feel like I’ve already watched it.

    Lol at some of the above comments! those saying it got some many bad reviews are mainly by bieber and lovatic fans. The genera that this film is aiming at have all appreciated & LOVED this film. Many critics claim this to be the best film of 2013 so far. Dnt go with the assumption of what the trailer shows.. the story is much more to that.

    This movie is actually slaying. In France they have extended screening from 200-600 on public demand! Sel is getting so many calls from movie directors! So happy for sel and co. Its a slap on those saying how bad this film was gonna flop..wer r u haters at! Some many stans of other fan-bases r pressed on twitter! HaHa!

    I detect an obvious Miley Cyrus shade in your comment nnn; we all know which movie will remain on top and still will be more likable for the general audience anyway :).
    Good for Vanessa, James, Selena and Ashley, though.

    Indie movies do well across the pond. It will flat line in the US, though.

  • Anonymous

    if they promote this movie so much it’s because they want to make sure that the targeted audience watch the film. Plus they already did a lot of money in France and some parts of Europe. I’m glad that some people like it. This means there’s hope for more indie films to succeed in the future.

  • Anonymous

    To the person who said indie films don’t do well in the us. You are in away right. But there’s some indie films from the past decade that have done good money. I only remember pulp fiction and the Blair witch project. and most of Kevin smith films.

  • Anonymous

    Sorry if I said past decade pulp fiction was like in the 90’s but a few indie films make some good money.or get some film fest awards.

    naturally sb’s release will be popular to start because of the actors and publicity, but the review tells the full story: that it’s actually a really sloppy film

    i doubt as many people will like it as perks, so it’s only downhill from here

  • Anonymous

    Considering it was only released in three theaters in two cities, that is a very high amount over the time span of two days! Maybe, if it makes enough, it can get a more national release. Congrats to all involved :)

    The Rotten Tomatoes’ rating really did surprise me. 0_0 I thought it would get 50%, since Korine work always gets around it

  • Anonymous

    The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a indie. It made around 30M worldwide. I think SB will gross around this too. The maximum it can achieve is 50M ww.

  • Anonymous

    perks will outperform this one by a long way. currently it’s at $2.5m foreign and $300k US…. and this review says it all: http://www.nypost.com/p/entertainment/movies/girls_gone_reviled_lTSxzHlGgsWVHdvdwaPbNI

    the other reviews are just franco or korine lovers

    We have that too:

    http://www.rollingstone.com/movies/reviews/spring-breakers-20130314

    Most part of the reviews are positive.

    And it was released only in France and Italy, and 3 theatres on US. Too early to predictions really

  • Anonymous

    Are you dumb? Why are you comparing Perk’s full run with Spring Breakers a weekend on France/Italy and one day on US?

  • BrokenArrow

    That’s great. They did a lot of promotion for this so that’s not really surprising.Do people really decide to go and watch a movie because of reviews?.

    Perks was an indie film and it was shown here so maybe this one gets played here too, it’s not the type of movie i go to watch in the theater tho.

  • BrokenArrow

    I dont really get why when a movie gets good reviews fans think is all because of actors lol.

  • Anonymous

    Ashley && Vanessa are fucking hot in this movie ummm selena and the other girl can go. But I actually liked the movie , even though everybody on twitter is saying it sucks it didn’t to mean I mean it does really have a plot but i liked it . It was straight I expected to be better but oh we’ll. they should’ve just had three girls though cause selena wasn’t in it long her character was pointless . But don’t listen to the reviews cause y’all might actually like it I did.

  • Anonymous

    Ok, comparing. Number on its firs weekend:
    Perk’s
    Italy 588,165
    France $237,747
    USA 1st friday: 84,916
    SB
    Italy: 683,516
    France: 2,066,518
    USA 1st friday: 95,000
    I think SB will do slightly better cuz it has a wider release outside USA.

    Nobody said this here?? But be on a movie with good reviews can do wonders for actors careers

    Tbh Korine and James Franco are getting all the praise. For the girls they just say they were convincing, that is not bad.

    I got Perks numbers from here

    It deserves more tbh.

    I was reading those type of comment on twitter. And since some people were talking about twitter reviews here it remind me to that.

  • BrokenArrow

    Perks showtimes were so shitty in the theaters near my flat.

    I prefer spring breakers not blow up. I would not enjoy if Selena become known in the film world for this role to be honest.

    when will you get it through your thick skull? this is an INDIE movie, it’s not meant to be a blockbuster.

    That’s why they hired the little Disney stars, not because of actual talent.

    Been reading on twitter that a lot of people saying how horrible this movie is and that they are sorry they wasted their money.

    I fall right into the demographic for this movie, being the same age as the characters. But it’s still the last movie I’d ever want to see. Boobs, threesomes, no plot. It’s a conformist, moral-less disgusting atrocity. This isn’t art – it’s trash.

    I’m glad they’re promoting the movie as much as they are. It’s good to see how proud they are of this movie. Plus when you have three major actresses like Selena, Vanessa, and Ashley of course they will. I’m sure this movie is going to be amazing.
