Dispatches from the Creation Wars

Expelled, Week Two

The receipts for Expelled dropped 54% from week one to week two, bringing in $1.4 million on about the same number of screens. Since most theaters had to show it for two weeks and then could dump it, the number of screens should drop greatly this week. The film has taken in a total of just under $5.3 million, of which about half goes to the producers of the film. That means so far they’ve recouped maybe 25% of their costs and things get a lot slower from here.
