The weekend’s big box office news is of course Lionsgate’s monolithic Hunger Games, but new specialty rollouts managed to have the odds favor them as well, most notably Samuel Goldwyn FilmsOctober Baby and Sony Pictures ClassicsThe Raid: Redemption. Indonesian-language action feature Raid scored a $15,781 average from 14 locations, a solid rollout for the feature that will be re-made in English by Screen Gems, so stay tuned. Samuel Goldwyn delivered October Baby in several hundred theaters, reaping good numbers on its three-day tally, while others including 4:44 Last Day On Earth and Musical Chairs debuted modestly.

Among second weekend specialty holdovers, last weekend’s per screen average winner The Kid With A Bike added 21 locations, taking in more than $100K for a respectable $4,500 average (though in straight percentage terms, it’s a 72% drop) for the French-language Cannes 2011 winner. Paramount Vantage’s Jeff Who Lives At Home stayed put in 254 theaters, grossing $600K, averaging $2,362, a decent 29% drop from its opener last week. CBS Films’ Salmon Fishing In The Yemen maintained momentum in its third weekend, doubling its number of theaters, grossing $680K, averaging $5,484, a 25% decline from its sophomore run last week.
