Harvey Weinstein helped put the Sundance Film Festival on the map. But organizers say this year’s slate, which puts women front and center, shows the festival has moved on.
The projects include a six-part documentary series and a film, both inspired by elements from two books about the teenager who was killed in 2012.
The creator of “Mad Men” has signed on for an eight-episode series for the streaming service.
Although reviews were mixed, some see an opening for Mr. Weinstein’s company after a screening generated a euphoric buzz at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Disney’s film remained at No. 1, while “The Huntsman” marked another misfire for Chris Hemsworth.
Weinstein said it would cancel plans to film a Lee Daniels movie there after the Assembly passed a bill that some say would lead to discrimination.
The fantasy romantic comedy took in $140 million during its second week in theaters, bringing its total earnings to $418 million. By Wednesday afternoon, that had risen to $441 million since its Feb. 8 release.
The film has now sold $740.3 million in tickets at domestic theaters, according to Rentrak, which compiles box- office data.
