‘Justice’ Far From Out; ‘Thoughts’ Bright In Bow; ‘Turtles’ Slows

“Out For Justice” maintained b.o. leadership its second week out, earning $9 million. Columbia’s thriller “Mortal Thoughts” had a strong opening, hitting $7.8 million while playing at fewer than half as many theaters as “Justice.”

The top 10 films grossed $43,400,186, down from the previous week’s $49,509,825.

New Line’s “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II” continued to fall off rapidly compared with its predecessor. The sequel should break $90 million at the boxoffice but is unlikely to hit the century mark.

Disney’s “The Marrying Man” plummeted 36% in its third clinch while passing the $10 million level in total.

Avenue’s “The Object Of Beauty” averaged a classy $9,139 in its second romp while doubling its theater spread.

Hemdale’s “Impromptu” was steady, off 4% with a $24,539 average in its second week at three sites. Skouras’ “The Comfort Of Strangers” expanded to 12 screens in week six while maintaining a fine $9,617 average.

Still exclusively in Gotham, “Paris Is Burning” jumped 3% to register $37,325 in its sixth week, $248,252 to date in a single booking. Zeitgeist’s “Poison” was not as strong, dipping 19% in its third week to $32,839, for $114,773 in its initial Manhattan run.

Orion Classics’ “Cyrano de Bergerac” passed the $5 million mark in its 23rd week, while fellow Gallic import “La Femme Nikita,” from Samuel Goldwyn Co., hit $1.5 million in only seven weeks of play.

Hemdale’s Austrian feature “Requiem For Dominic” got off to a grim start, registering only $12,280 at two Gotham sites. New Yorker’s “Korczak” dipped 17% to $10,314 in its second exclusive N.Y. berth.
