Death at a Funeral doing well at the box office in limited release

The following was reported by the Hollywood Reporter

Among limited releases, Sidney Kimmel Entertainment's "Death at Funeral," released by MGM, showed promise as it was greeted by $1.3 million in 260 theaters in 60 markets for a per-theater average of just more than $5,000.

Noting that the daily grosses on the British comedy of bad manners, directed by Frank Oz, jumped 57% from Friday to Saturday, Kimmel Distribution president Bingham Ray said: "It harkens back to an old-fashioned, crowd-pleasing, word-of-mouth hit. A British movie with no stars directed by a great American director, it's attracting a mature audience that really enjoys the movie."
