Limited Box Office Weekend for USA 1-3 August 2008

British film Brideshead Revisited got a boost on locations last week, it opened on 33 theaters for a very healthy average of more than $ 10,000 per location, past week expanded to 189, what put it on the top of the chart.

From writers Jeremy Brock (The Last King of Scotland) and Andrew Davies (Bridget Jones's Diary), Julian Jerrold's follow up to Becoming Jane it's getting good reviews and good word-of mouth. Look for rising star Matthew Goode to tap into his Match Point experience for this update of Evelyn Waugh's scandalous drama, alongside Goode will be his charming co-stars, Ben Whishaw, who captivated European audiences in Perfume: The Story of a Murderer's lead role, and Hayley Atwell, who will try and out pout Keira Knightley in The Duchess later this year. How odd to realize this picture was almost made with Paul Bettany, Jennifer Connelly and Jude Law in the lead roles ...
