*Stand-up concert film “Kevin Hart: Laugh at My Pain” continued its extraordinary box-office run this weekend, passing $7 million in revenue since its Sept. 9 release, reports Reuters. It is now, by far, the most successful film this year for any release that never went out wider than 300 theaters.
The R-rated film, from Codeblack, a distributor of content targeting mostly African-American audiences, debuted explosively on Sept. 9, grossing more than $1.9 million for its opening weekend at only 98 locations.
Playing 188 locations this weekend, its sixth in release, “Laugh at My Pain” grossed $276,000, bringing its domestic total to nearly $7.4 million.
Featuring documentary-style footage of comedian Hart on stage, as well as at home in Philadelphia and goofing a bit in a send-up skit of Quentin Tarantino’s “Reservoir Dogs,” “Laugh at My Pain” was produced for only around $750,000.
