Pierce Brosnan's 'The November Man' and 'As Above/So Below' get off to slow starts at box office

By Daniel S Levine,

Hollywood is looking at another snoozefest at the box office this weekend, since Guardians of the Galaxy now has a chance to score another week at the top, a month after its release. That’s because Pierce Brosnan’s The November Man and the horror micro-budget movie As Above/So Below aren’t doing so well.

The November Man has been in theaters since Wednesday. As we previously reported, the film only made $862,000 that day, failing to beat Guardians. The Marvel movie made $1.5 million on Wednesday.

Relativity released the spy thriller in the middle of the week in hopes to make some extra money ahead of the Labor Day weekend. While it is making some money, it’s not doing huge business. According to TheWrap, the film added $833,000 on Thursday.

The film is directed by Roger Donaldson and Relativity only spent $3 million to acquire U.S. rights.

Meanwhile, As Above/So Below from Legendary and Universal had an unimpressive late Thursday start. The Hollywood Reporter notes that the $5 million film scared up $470,000 last night.

November is expected to make anywhere between $9 million and $13 million over the weekend, while As Above is expected to rake in around $8 million. Either way, Guardians will likely come out on top again. The film only made $17.6 million last weekend, but that was more than enough to beat If I Stay and Sin City: A Dame To Kill For.
