Deadline is reporting that “A Most Wanted Man” opened strong in it’s opening weekend.
Bold debuts from two of the weekend’s openers in a crowded specialty box office included yet another Woody Allen film as well as a last starring turn from the late Philip Seymour Hoffman.
Lionsgate/Roadside Attractions opened Anton Corbijn‘s cerebral thriller A Most Wanted Man over the weekend after a glittering mid-week premiere at the Museum Of Modern Art (MoMA) courtesy of the Cinema Society and its usual well-heeled crowd. The film, based on a John Le Carre‘ post-Cold War espionage thriller, grossed $2,717,425, averaging $7,527 in 361 theaters. The distributors noted it is the second-highest number in its history in absolute terms, following The Conspirator‘s $3.5M launch in 2011. Also notably, Most Wanted peeked into the top 10 this weekend.
“With a 91% ‘fresh rating’ on Rotten Tomatoes, the film had fantastic reviews, and was the story of the weekend at the specialty box office,” Roadside said. ”[The feature] opened 20% higher than the Roadside/Lionsgate 2013 release Mud, which [opened] on the same number of screens ( to $2.2M) and went on to a $21M total North American box office. A Most Wanted Man went up a very strong 59% from Friday to Saturday.”
10). A Most Wanted Man (RSA), 361 theaters / $716K Fri. / $1.1M Sat. (+59%) / $855K Sun. (-25%) / Per screen average: $7,505 / Total cume: $2.7M / Wk 1
The movie had a limited release in the US and Variety is reporting will expand to more theaters after a solid box office debut..
“A Most Wanted Man” marks one of Philip Seymour Hoffman’s final starring roles and fans of the Oscar-winning actor are helping to make the twisty spy thriller an art-house success.
“Philip never really got to star in movies,” said Howard Cohen, president of the film’s distributor, Roadside Attractions. “He was always known as a utility player…There’s no question that part of the appeal is the idea of him giving a final, great performance.”

“A Most Wanted Man” officially got certified fresh on RottenTomatoes.com yesterday and currently holds a 91% rating with 95 reviews. We will round-up the reviews in this post.
“One of the pleasant surprises is the beautiful and talented Rachel McAdams, which immediately makes you think, “where has she been?” While she has been making her rounds in independent films like Passion, About Time, and To the Wonder, her role as “Annabel” shows a deeper talent that is aching to be realized by the right director. Internalizing emotions and releasing only when called upon, McAdams turns in her one of her strongest turns yet. Not your A-typical “damsel in distress” or “unbelievable tough chick,” McAdams reinvents a character that could have just laid on the screen with no emotion. She relaxes herself into the role, working well off some of the screen’s most gifted performers. It’s a magnificent work.”

Rachel is gracing Allure magazine’s August 2014 cover, like we previously reported, to promote “A Most Wanted Man“. Allure released a preview of the photoshoot and interview earlier today. We have added the photoshoot and behind the scenes photo in our gallery. You can find the interview excerpts below as well (Via ET Canada & JustJared). We will add the magazine scans and full interview transcript as soon as possible. The magazine will hit newsstands next week, on Tuesday, July 29.
On working with Philip Seymour Hoffman: “I learned so much from him. He really takes you under— he really took me under his wing. You feel very taken care of, but at the same time there’s an element of danger: There’s a crackle in every scene. He makes sure the stakes are very high, and there’s a safety there, too. He had so much natural, raw talent, but he worked so hard, too. He really worked for it and didn’t let up. I’m sure that wasn’t easy.”
On the legacy she wants to leave behind: “I’m hoping it’s going to be complicated and have lots of dead ends and corners and sharp turns. I hope it can’t be summed up too easily when I’m done.”
On Ryan Gosling’s Hey Girl meme: “I know you’re not going to believe me, but I don’t follow it.”
On working with Lindsay Lohan: “If anything, I was in awe of her talent. I looked at her as this experienced actor, and she had great comedic timing, so natural. It’s just funny to hear that because you never know what people are thinking. We all try to act like we’ve got it together.”
On her big-screen debut role in The Hot Chick: “I remember standing backstage, dressed like a mechanic. I had a pink bikini on underneath, grease on my face, and I just remember breathing deep and thinking, Oh, my God, I have to go out there and do this striptease, as a man…as a woman. How did I get here? It was probably one of the scariest moments I’ve had in my career. It stretched me in ways I could have never imagined. Literally.”
On if she still believes in true love: “Oh yeah, for sure. Absolutely.”
