Che is a hit! Kind of! After grossing nearly $250,000 in three weeks — in only two theaters, screening twice a day — IFC Films is literally, unexpectedly taking its "roadshow" version on the road.
"Unexpectedly" is debatable, we suppose; IFC took a wait-and-see approach after acquiring Steven Soderbergh's 262-minute biopic last fall, dropping it in New York and Los Angeles a month ahead of its Jan.21 roll-out to VOD. Its success means good news to those bros in Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington D.C. hoping to throw Benicio Del Toro's accent back in his face: Che gets at least one week in your towns starting tomorrow. Sorry, Cleveland — we passed along the request, we swear.
