Is The Kids Are All Right On Track to Become the Next Brokeback Sleeper Hit?

By next weekend Focus Features’ The Kids Are All Right will reach 500-600 theaters nationwide, which means its current $4.9 million take (and wholly impressive per screen average) should see a nice burst. Kind of reminds you of the film distributor’s last slowly rolled out blockbuster success: a little film called Brokeback Mountain, “which went on to lasso over $83 million domestically. During the third week of that film’s release, the cowboy romance arrived in 217 theaters with per-screen averages of $8,803 and total sales of $6.8 million.”
