Kevin Smith's latest film, Jay & Silent Bob Reboot, was released back in October and has had a very unique theatrical run. The movie was originally released as a two-night only Fathom Events screening and then Smith and Jason Mewes took the film on tour with the Reboot Roadshow. Smith has been very open about the movie's earnings, and the director just learned today that his movie has actually beaten some impressive box office records. According to Forbes, the movie earned $93,520 from just one theater back in October, which is more than Avengers: Endgame ever earned in one screening.
”That’s right,” Forbes wrote. “That $93,520 all came from one theater. Over the course of three days, Jay & Silent Bob Reboot averaged more from that one theater than any other movie did (up to that point) in 2019. That’s right: more than Avengers: Endgame, than The Lion King, than any of the other Disney juggernauts that dominated theaters last year. In fact, only 42 other movies in the history of cinema had accomplished such a gargantuan per-theater average." They added, "But here’s the crazy part. Kevin Smith’s latest movie hasn’t achieved at least a $60,000 per-theater average just once. And not even just twice. In fact, not even just three times. In total, Jay & Silent Bob Reboot has achieved a $60,000 per-theater average four different times during its domestic run. And no other movie in history has accomplished such a feat."
