This will surpass the screen count of "Midnight in Paris" as the widest release of any Allen film.

Starring Cate Blanchett, Sally Hawkins, Alec Baldwin and Louis C.K., "Blue Jasmine" has earned $9.9 million in box-office grosses since its July 26 limited release.

This is the 44th feature film Allen has written and directed and his sixth movie for Sony Pictures Classics.
