The Whale Sets New Record for 2022 with Limited Theatrical Release

Fans were ready when The Whale had its release in limited theaters this weekend, a sign that the film will be pulling in high numbers when it starts playing in more locations. Per Variety, the film, which features Brendan Fraser in a role that some are saying will earn him a nomination for Best Actor at the Oscars, grossed $360,000 in just six theaters. That translates to an average of $60,000 per screen, which sets the new record as the highest per-theater average for 2022. This breaks the previous record set by fellow A24 film Everything Everywhere All at Once, which nabbed a $50,000 per-screen average.
