‘NO SAFE SPACES’ EXPANSION CONTINUES: FREE SPEECH DOCUDRAMA MOVES INTO FLORIDA AND SOUTH CAROLINA; OUTPACES ZOMBIELAND AND DOWNTON IN PER SCREEN AVERAGE
Adam Carolla/Dennis Prager Docudrama Shows Continued Strength At The Box OfficeNOVEMBER 11, 2019 (Los Angeles, CA) – Building on a stunning debut in Phoenix which made it the second largest opening for a documentary on a single screen in history after Michael Moore’s Sicko, the free-speech docudrama No Safe Spaces continued to surprise box office watchers by posting solid weekend grosses, outpacing competitors like Zombieland and Downton Abbey on a per screen average basis in its third weekend of release as it continues its rollout.
The film, co-starring comedian and podcast king Adam Carolla and radio talk show host Dennis Prager continued its market expansion over the weekend in Florida and South Carolina, taking in an estimated $65k and delivering higher per screen average estimates than Zombieland and Downton Abbey, averaging $1,800 on 37 screens, a 12% increase from the previous week. The film will continue to expand next week into Los Angeles, Sacramento, Fresno, Kansas City, Minneapolis, Salt Lake City, Orlando and San Antonio.
In No Safe Spaces Carolla and Prager travel the country, talking to experts and advocates on the left and right, tour college campuses, and examine their own upbringings to try to understand what is happening in America today and what free speech in this country should look (and sound) like.“We are grateful for everyone giving us so much support as we take this movie into more theaters across America,” said Prager.
