Comedian Kevin Hart's Film Passes $7 Million At Box Office

LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) - 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.
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.
It is, by far, the most successful film this year for any release that never went out wider than 300 theaters.

and people laughed at me when I said ... "our generation can now finally say GranDad had Pryor, Dad had Murphy and we got Kevin Hart" There are hundreds of other great comedians, but there are few comedic Legends and few that have put out stand-up movies. K-Hart will be a legend because his work is legendary
