The headline might be just a little deceiving… Okay, a lot. Jonathan Levine’s The Wackness was released on just six screens in New York and Los Angeles this past weekend. And while the film’s $145,000 gross might not seem like much, this little indie gem was able to make $24,166 per screen, which is about $8,000 more per screen than the Will Smith superhero film Hancock. Yes, I realize that Hancock was on 3,959 more screens than The Wackness, but that’s also my point.

The Wackness is one of those wonderful little indies that you have to seek out. Sony will be expanding the film’s release though-out the month, and chances are you’ll be able to see it at a theater near you (that is if you live near the top 50 markets).
