Then the show streams for free on the indie video-sharing site Vimeo. Although all the current installments were mostly funded by the shows creators, the actor Ben Sinclair and his wife, the casting director Katja Blichfeld, Vimeo has just announced that the Web site will provide financial backing for upcoming ones, as part of a move into a Netflix-style production model. Yet despite its D.I.Y. origins High Maintenance doesnt feel like a self-indulgent pet projectinstead, its more like a shoebox that opens into Narnia.

Box Office: ‘Lucy’ To Overpower ‘Hercules’ And ‘Apes’

One comp for Lucy is Salt the female actioner starring Angelina Jolie (although Salt was PG-13 and Lucy is R-rated). Salt opened to $36M in 2010. Meanwhile, Hercules is on IMAX screens until they get pushed aside for Guardians of the Galaxy starting next weekend which will have the big screens at least three weekends.

Kansas City-based AMC Theatres (which includes Loews) has 341 locations and 4,945 screens and operates eight of the 10 highest-grossing theaters in the country.
