Sony’s Tom Hanks-starrer A Man Called Otto banked $4.2 million in a lively second frame as it moved to 637 locations nationwide from four in NY and LA. Strong word of mouth propelled moviegoers into seats with particular strength in the heartland and momentum looks good as the adult drama/comedy heads into next week’s wide expansion for the holiday weekend. It’s Martin Luther King Jr. Day next Monday.
Otto made $1.5 million Friday, $1.7 million Saturday, and a projected $1 million Sunday with a strong $6.6k per screen average and a cume of $4.28 million. Audience response drove the jump — the film has a 97% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes, versus a 68% from critics. It’s no. 4 at the domestic box office.
