Not about box office Xiangqi, Clint Eastwood Cry Macho It opened on Friday for about $ 1.59 million and set the stage for a $ 4.54 million domestic debut. It’s clearly below the criteria for flicks starring Clint Eastwood, but not too far away. Richard Jewel (He directed but didn’t star), opened in December 2019 for $ 4.7 million.Movies starring Clint Eastwood (whether he directed or not) tend to (with the following star-led exceptions): Shree When American Sniper) It performs better than what he simply directs.Robert Lorenz Trouble with the curve Eastwood’s opened in 2012 for $ 12.5 million Mule It opened in 2018 for $ 17.5 million.
Of course, the movie, which debuted at the same time on HBO Max, never broke out because there was little action and no co-stars to watch (problem Amy Adams and Justin Timberlake also starred). It’s still disappointing with or without the Covid curve, but at some point the marketing appeal of “seeing Clint Eastwood on the screen … and finally again” was waning.I’m old enough to remember when Gran Torino It was his swan song in late 2008 / early 2009. That said, in a normal theater year, this pretty terrible drama will be a WB release “for the love of the game” with screen icons that worked with them for most of his career since then. (at least) Dirty Harry 1971.
As always, I’m hoping this movie (obviously played by older viewers) will break the index on HBO Max, but it’s a conversation on Monday afternoon. Open Road has opened Joe Carnahan’s Cup shop Certainly half-hearted results at 3,005 theaters this weekend. Despite the Covid Curve, (surprisingly well-reviewed) Gerard Butler / Frank Grillo / Alexis Louder Action Thriller earned $ 950,000 on Friday and probably spent a $ 2.475,000 debut weekend. That’s obviously not good, and perhaps Grindhouse flicks opened a bit better at normal times (butlers are generally B movie action stars when the movie is cheap enough to succeed in a $ 15 million debut. But the movie is definitely a victim of further division after the pandemic between those who have and those who do not.
Searchlight Pictures unofficially launched the Oscar season yesterday Tammy Faye’s eyes.. Michael Showalter’s biographical drama detailing the rise and fall of the infamous evangelists Jim Bakker (Andrew Garfield) and Tammy Faye (Jessica Chastain) earned only $ 250,000 in 450 theaters. This makes the flick an opening weekend of $ 630,000. This could mean the end of the Oscar’s outlook for the movie (or Chastain). That said, in the midst of Covid, it was destined to have more blogs than you can actually see.Otherwise Dear Evan Hanson (I seem to like it more than most critics) Outperforming performance next weekend, the first potentially commercial “Oscarflick” will be Ridley Scott’s Last duel.. The medieval soap opera of Jodie Comer / Matt Damon / Adam Driver / Ben Affleck begins on October 15th with the favor of 20th Century Studios.
In Holdover News, Free Guy It also earned $ 1,333,000 (-11%), boosting its cumulative total to $ 104.7 million. Ryan Reynolds / Jodie Comer’s comic fantasy earns about $ 5 million (-10%) on the 6th weekend and $ 108.4 million in 38 days.

The Nia Dakosta horror sequel earned $ 1 million (-29%) on Friday, $ 3.47 million (-27%) on the fourth weekend, and a total of $ 53.138 million over 24 days. Is that enough for the popular $ 25 million R-rated horror movie? of course.It’s less than everyone wanted and could be part of the reason Universal gave Halloween kill What is the release date and date of Peacock? Also, yes.
Alas, Warner Bros. and Newline Malignant They earned $ 810,000 (-60%) on Fridays, $ 2.5 million (-54%) on weekends, and a cumulative total of $ 962 million over 10 days. A large gloss can prevent a 54% drop in a split R-rated horror movie.Sure, James Wan’s gem is a cult classic in production, but laments what the next stage of horror would look like if this happened at least to the next level. saw Also Insidious.. concentration’ Card counter Not surprisingly, Friday was down 67% at $ 140,000. A fairly solid Paul Schrader “slow cinema” flick is arguably a “fan-only” service that earns $ 440,000 (-58%) on weekends and $ 1,914,000 in 10 days. Naturally.
