I can’t even believe the headline myself. Maybe I took a hammer to the head?
Even with big names like Spike Lee, Josh Brolin, Elizabeth Olsen, Sharlto Copley, and Samuel Jackson, FilmDistrict’s Oldboy scored one of the weakest Thanksgiving openings of all time, estimating a dismal $850,000 in five days, though the film bowed at just 583 locations (not technically a wide release), Variety reports.
This continues the awful weekend for the film shrouded in negative press.
Even with the negative press and weak reviews, it’s a shocker to see the film get such a small release, and even more bizarre to see it not even pull in $1M over the course of a whopping 5 day holiday weekend. This has easily got to be one of the biggest flops in recent memory. Ouch.
