On the heels of its strong opening weekend, DreamWorks Pictures announced today that it will expand the release pattern of Dreamer: Inspired by a True Story to an additional 500 screens. "Dreamer" opened this last weekend to $9.2 million on just over 2,000 screens for a solid per screen average of $4,500.
The highest-testing movie in DreamWorks' history, Dreamer also showed a potential for extremely strong word of mouth with an unprecedented 100% "definite recommend" from females in exit polls.
In making the announcement, DreamWorks Head of Distribution Jim Tharp stated, "Dreamer performed extremely well in its opening weekend, especially in America's heartland. The film has struck a chord with women, young girls and families as well as many critics and by adding theaters we can make the film available to a wider audience."
