“Lazer Team” pulls in 11th best per screen average for its opening weeking

03-LAZER-TEAM-Photo-Courtesy-of-Rooster-Teeth“Lazer Team,” the first feature from the Austin-based media juggernaut Rooster Teeth, has grossed $1,123,697 in its opening weekend, coming in 53rd for the weekend.

That number may seem small when compared to, say, “Kung Fu Panda 3,” which won the weekend with $41 million.

But “Lazer Team” pulled in an impressive $3,284 per screen average (it was shown on 35 screens).

This put it ahead of much higher profile films such as “Fifty Shades of Black,” which also opened Jan. 29 and “Dirty Grandpa” and “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi,” both of which have only been out for two and three weeks, respectively. All three are on at least 2,000 screens.

Not too shabby, Team Lazer.
