Ira Glass Produces Year’s Biggest Opening: Joss Whedon Declares War

sleepwalk_with_meOpening in just one theater in Manhattan last weekend, SLEEPWALK WITH ME proved to be one of the biggest surprises of the year by raking in a breathtaking $68,801, giving it the highest per screen opening average of the year. This is made all the more amazing because, as a joke a few weeks ago, AVENGERS director JOSS WHEDON declared war on SLEEPWALK and called for a boycott. Now, as fate would have it, WHEDON’S fears have been realized and the little indie that could has beaten the big superhero movie at its own box office game (THE AVENGERS per screen average on opening weekend was $47, 698).
We sat down with producer IRA GLASS yesterday to talk about the release of SLEEPWALK WITH ME and he admitted to being thrilled with the New York opening weekend reaction. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)
