Blame it on a liberal/left-wing conspiracy, Obama's repressive policies, or Captain America: The First Avenger, but despite the addition of four theaters – or a 40 percent increase in venues – the Sarah Palin movie The Undefeated plummeted 63 percent on its second weekend out. At 14 locations, The Undefeated collected a dismal $24,000, for a per-theater average of $1,714, according to studio estimates found at Box Office Mojo.

Expect Sarah Palin and The Undefeated to disappear from North American screens very shortly. That is, until both Palin and the Stephen K. Bannon-directed documentary inevitably resurface early next year at the Razzie Awards.

Performing much better in limited release was The Weinstein Company-distributed Sarah's Key, directed by Gilles Paquet-Brenner, and featuring Kristin Scott Thomas and Mélusine Mayance. The Holocaust-related drama collected $117k at five theaters, averaging $23,400 per site. Additionally, Sarah's Key has already taken in $13.42 million overseas, chiefly in France ($6.41m) and The Netherlands ($4.37m).

Also performing well, Mike Cahill's sci-fi drama Another Earth earned an estimated $78,400 at four theaters. Its per-theater average was $19,600. Another Earth features Brit Marling, Matthew-Lee Erlbach, and William Mapother.

Faring more modestly, IFC's The Myth of the American Sleepover opened in one New York City theater, where it grossed $9,100. Directed by David Robert Mitchell, The Myth of the American Sleepover features Claire Sloma, Marlon Morton, and Amanda Bauer.
