‘The Kids Are All Right’ continues to gather steam

By Greg Hernandez

HollywoodNews.com: Big-time movie stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Angelina Jolie ruled at the box office this weekend with “Inception” and “Salt,” respectively.

But a movie that cost a lot less to make is gathering steam and it’s a drama about a lesbian couple (Annette Bening and Julianne Moore) whose lives are turned upside down when their two kids track down their sperm donor daddy (Mark Ruffalo).

The film expanded from 28 theaters to 201 on Friday and grossed an estimated $2.6 million over the three days. That may sound small compared to the $43.5 million grossed by Salt but the real success is in the per theater total. “Kids” grossed an average of $13,174 on each screen it played which was higher than any other movie.
