Outside of the top 10, ‘Romeo and Juliet (2013)‘ (Rela.) is released into #18, which is slightly disappointing, along with the festival favorite, ‘The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete‘ (LGF) starring Jennifer Hudson at #23. Strangely enough, ‘Escape from Tomorrow‘ (PDA) spun scary tea cups into #34, but I blame poor advertising and story.

This week, ‘Carrie‘ will be released on October 17th, just before limited releases of possible 2014 Oscar favorites, ‘12 Years a Slave‘, ‘All is Lost‘ featuring Robert Redford, and ‘The Fifth Estate‘ in national release on October 18th, along with several more limited releases in New York and Los Angeles.
