Woody Allen's 'Blue Jasmine' On Course to Be Year's Top Indie at Box Office

Woody Allen's "Blue Jasmine" is on its way to becoming the highest-grossing independent release of the year after taking in $4.3 million over the weekend.

Sony Pictures Classics aggressively expanded the drama, in which Cate Blanchett plays the wife of a Bernie Madoff-type swindler, into 1,283 theaters in its fifth weekend, up from 229. That's the widest release ever for an Allen film, and it averaged $3,352 per location and raised its domestic total to $14.8 million.
