This weekend the box office provided the lowest numbers recorded in 4 years.
Box Office Mojo reports that the box office hasn’t seen numbers this low since September 2008. This week in the theaters, The Possession, The Words, The Cold Light of Day and Lawless were just some of many options to see in the movie theater, but for each of them, fans seemingly opted not to go which resulted in a decrease in viewership.
The Possession fell 53 percent, according to reports, while Lawless, starring Shia LaBeouf, Tom Hardy and Guy Pearce, retained its second place spot, but did drop 36 percent from last Friday’s debut.
Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Irons and Dennis Quaid star in the romantic-drama, The Words, which hit theaters Friday; unfortunately fans weren’t eager to see the film as it only grossed $5 million. However, E! News notes that the film only cost $6 million to make. The film did take the third place this weekend.
Meanwhile, The Dark Knight Rises reached a milestone, adding $850,000 to its already magnificent run. According to Box Office Mojo, the film has now surpassed E.T.: The Extra Terrestrial and remained in the top 10, claiming the eighth place position.
The Mabrouk El Mechri-directed film The Cold Light of Day, got some bad news, however, which stars Bruce Willis and Henry Cavill. The film flopped, bringing in an estimated $637,000 from 1,511 locations.
