‘Dos hermanos’ opens hot in Argentina

Local pic bests 'Alice,' 'Dragon's' per-screen average

Daniel Burman’s “Dos hermanos” came out strong in its world premiere in Argentina, posting the hottest per-screen gross and second in ticket sales in a market dominated by Hollywood.

“Hermanos,” from the director of Berlin-laurelled “Lost Embrace,” is about two ageing, bickering siblings brought together by their mother’s death to share a big house in a small village.

It is based on “Villa Laura,” the debut novel by Argentina’s Sergio Dubcovsky.

The $1.8 million-budget “Hermanos” grossed 1.96 million pesos ($506,000) on 77 screens from Thursday through Sunday, according to local B.O. tracker Ultracine.

It trailed 3D pics “Alice in Wonderland” and “How to Train Your Dragon.” Yet “Hermanos,” distributed by Pascual Condito’s Primer Plano, bested them with a per-screen gross of $6,757 compared with “Alice’s” $4,450 and “Dragon’s” $3,600.
