It's time to look at Ponyo's US box office numbers for Monday and Tuesday. Since we're winding down, I thought it better to take a look every couple of days. I'm sure we've followed along closely enough, so there are no surprises at this point.
Here are Ponyo's numbers for Monday and Tuesday:
Per Screen: $283
Per Screen: $277
I remain hopeful that we can break that $10 million mark. There are still a few people here and there who haven't seen Ponyo yet (including one of my co-workers), so I'm hopeful everyone will go to the theaters. I'm not aware how long the movie will be playing, but I would expect the number of screens to begin rolling back fairly soon. Fortunately, the Lagoon in Minneapolis will hang onto their copy for a while. They're very tenacious about movies like that. If they could move Ponyo to the Uptown Theatre, I'd really be happy.
