A Pretty Disappointing Weekend at the Box Office

So the three biggest movies that opened this weekend all flopped, basically. Even big names like Sandra Bullock and Bradley Cooper couldn’t help much.

Bradley Cooper’s “Burnt” barely made over $6 Million this weekend, and was rated 29% by critics and 61% by users on Rotten Tomatoes, ouch.

Sandra Bullock’s “Our Brand is Crisis” made a dismal $3 Million and was rated 33% by critics and only 48% by users.

The lesser of the three was “Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse“, and with no big names attached, it didn’t even hit the $2 Million mark. And similar to Our Brand is Crisis, was rated 31% by critics and 58% by users.

We haven’t seen a box office weekend this bad since, well, I don’t know when. Box Office Mojo reported that it’s the slowest weekend of the whole year so far. The Martian, Goosebumps and Bridge of Spies are still in the number 1, 2 and 3 spots, respectively. But there’s been some pretty big movies released this year so far and with next week offering us the latest 007 film, the final Hunger Games film in a few weeks and the 7th Star Wars at the end of the year, it shouldn’t slow down this much again for the rest of 2015.
