The far left politics of George Clooney and Matt Damon could also be having an impact on their backside line. Both that or their newest mission is only a actually terrible film. Presumably, a mixture of each.
Weekend Field Workplace: ‘Suburbicon’ DOA With $2.8M; ‘Jigsaw’ No. 1
‘Suburbicon’ — slapped with a D- CinemaScore — marks the worst opening of George Clooney’s directing profession and one of many worst broad openings in Paramount’s historical past.
Lionsgate’s Jigsaw spooked the competitors on the pre-Halloween field workplace — together with George Clooney’s Suburbicon, a significant bomb — with a $16.three million debut from 2,941 theaters.
Nonetheless, not even Jigsaw might escape the October stoop putting the multiplex, with income for the month down greater than 13 p.c over final yr, based on comScore. Jigsaw, reviving the marquee Noticed horror franchise, was anticipated to open to $20 million or extra. Nevertheless, Halloween preparations, the debut of Stranger Issues 2 on Netflix and the World Sequence had been all main distractions…
Suburbicon, starring Matt Damon and Julianne Moore, opened to a dismal $2.eight million from 2,045 theaters after getting slapped with a D- CinemaScore. That’s the worst nationwide launch of Clooney’s directing profession and the worst displaying of Damon’s profession behind All of the Fairly Horses, which debuted to $1.three million from 1,483 cinemas in 2000. It’s also one of many worst broad opening in Paramount’s historical past.
That’s fairly dismal. Most likely not the opening the 2 leftists had been hoping for.
