The buzz: Wes Anderson + Bill Murray = Awesome. The duo’s previous collaborations – “Rushmore,” “The Royal Tenenbaums,” “The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou,” “The Darjeeling Limited” and “Fantastic Mr. Fox” – had fans clamoring for “Moonrise Kingdom.” Initially opening in four theaters, it earned a record per-screen average of $130,752. By comparison, “The Avengers” opened to an average $47,698 per screen.
