Last weekend, New York and Los Angeles audiences received their first look at The Fabelmans, the new drama film from legendary filmmaker Steven Spielberg and studio Universal Pictures. A little money was made at the box office, even though the picture won’t be widely available for several more weeks.

According to the official box office statistics, the Fabelmans made an estimated $160,000 from its four screens of release, for a per-theater average of $40,000. Despite how modest that sounds in comparison to what current theaters pull in, it’s actually on par with the results of other recent platform releases in the same genre. In contrast, The Banshees of Inisherin from Searchlight Pictures grossed $46,113, while Focus Features’ Tár earned $39,655.

 
While The Fabelmans’ $40,000 average may not put it in the running for best picture, it is in line with Universal’s projections for the film given the limited reach of its early limited distribution. There was only a 3% decline from Friday to Saturday, suggesting that Spielberg’s film will continue to do well as it expands in theaters. These box office receipts may appear low, but if past performances are any indication, the picture will likely do well.

It’s tough to say whether or not the film’s box office success will translate to awards season success. The excitement around The Fabelmans, however, cannot be denied. The film is an original drama that follows Sammy Fabelman, a 16-year-old aspiring filmmaker, and is partially based on Spielberg’s own childhood and early career as a director. The movie’s tagline from Universal reads, “an investigation of the power of cinema to help us understand the truth about one other and ourselves.”

Gabriel LaBelle, as Sammy Fabelman, leads a large cast in this picture. In addition to Michelle Williams and Paul Dano, the film also stars Seth Rogen, Judd Hirsch, Robin Bartlett, Keeley Karsten, and Julia Butters. In the early 2000s, Spielberg apparently started thinking about making an autobiographical film, which led to the development of The Fabelmans.

 
In addition to helming the project, Spielberg co-wrote the script with Tony Kushner and served as a producer on it through his company, Amblin Entertainment. Kristie Macosko Krieger, another producer, joined them.
