Sarah Palin Film to Get Wider Release

The producers of the pro-Sarah Palin documentary “The Undefeated” say they are following up a better-than-expected opening weekend with plans to expand to more cities soon.

Details weren’t yet available Monday, but the movie’s distributor, ARC Entertainment, said the film would be “going to a wider release footprint later this month.”

The film opened in 10 mid-sized cities Friday and grossed about $70,000 for the weekend for a per-screen average of about $5,000, the distributor reported. Based on average U.S. ticket prices, that works out to a very rough estimate of less than 9,000 people paying to see “The Undefeated” in its first weekend.

Though the movie was panned by professional critics, audiences had a more positive reaction. In four markets — Phoenix, Atlanta, Denver and Indianapolis — the film was moved to a bigger room to accommodate crowds, and several showings were sold out, the distributor said.
