Jennifer Lawrence Just Suffered The Worst Opening Weekend Of Her Film Career With mother!

Not a good weekend at the box office for Jennifer Lawrence! The movie star just suffered through the worst wide opening weekend of her entire career with new film mother!, a complete bust at the box office that took in just $7.5 million from nearly 2,500 theaters all across North America. WTF?! What a bomb!!! Related: J.Law's Complete [...] Not a good weekend at the box office for Jennifer Lawrence! The movie star just suffered through the worst wide opening weekend of her entire career with new film mother!, a complete bust at the box office that took in just $7.5 million from nearly 2,500 theaters all across North America. WTF?! What a bomb!!! Related: J.Law's Complete Style Revolution! It didn't help that the film, directed by Darren Aronofsky, stalled hard because it earned a solid 'F' grade from CinemaScore, but even with it, those box office totals are brutal -- it couldn't even clear eight figures!! Last we'd heard, Kevin Hart's sex tape was being offered up for considerably more in extortion money than the cumulative box office total mother! took in over the weekend... yikes... The film cost only $30 million to produce, and it'll obviously be in theaters for at least few more weeks, so it's not like the flick has completely bombed financially... but let's not kid ourselves. This is bad. And yeah, it officially supplants The House At The End Of The Street as the worst opening on Lawrence's career. (The House had brought in $12.3 million in its opening weekend back when it bombed.) As for big winners, It continues to cruise into the history books in its second weekend: the Stephen King adaptation netted $60 million from 4,103 theaters, making it the biggest second-weekend gross of a horror film EVER!

It Proves To Be A MASSIVE Hit At The Box Office!

There's absolutely no question which flick ruled the box office this weekend: It is the most popular movie in America, with a HUGE opening weekend in theaters over the last few days! In fact, the Stephen King adaptation took in so much money, it became the biggest opener EVER for a movie in the horror genre! [...] There's absolutely no question which flick ruled the box office this weekend: It is the most popular movie in America, with a HUGE opening weekend in theaters over the last few days! In fact, the Stephen King adaptation took in so much money, it became the biggest opener EVER for a movie in the horror genre! Incredible!! Related: Watch The Brand New Fifty Shades Freed Trailer HERE! Over 4,103 theaters across all of North America this weekend, It has taken in a grand total of $117.2 million, setting the horror genre opening weekend record and BLOWING AWAY all of its first-week opener competition!!! This is particularly important for the North American box office considering it's been a few months since a major hit in theaters, and the summer was one of the worst in recent memory for production companies and movie houses. But now, It has redeemed all that -- at least for the time being -- by shattering a ton of records and bringing in a legit nine figure payday along the way! comScore movie analyst Paul Dergarabedian spoke about the clown Pennywise and the It film doing so well at the box office this weekend, per THR (below): "Pennywise has certainly brought big dollars back to the movie theater, and not a moment too soon. Let's face it, people love horror movies, and within the darkened walls of a movie theater, the communal electricity that is created by a bunch of people being scared out of their wits is almost as fun as the movie itself; this is why the film has obliterated expectations and is setting records." That's a hell of a lot better than some of the other new releases that came through this weekend, though. For one, Home Again -- starring Reese Witherspoon -- underwhelmed by drawing just $9 million over 2,940 theaters in a very disappointing second place showing in theaters. Related: Get More Movie Industry News HERE! And at the specialty box office, Charlie Sheen's new drama 9/11 fell REALLY flat, drawing just $162,450 from 400 theaters -- which equates out to a brutal average of $406 per location. Yikes. But at least It saved the day this weekend!! What about you, Perezcious readers?! Did you go see anything in theaters the last few days?? Let us know what you saw in the comments (below)!!!

Rounding out the top five movies of the weekend were Wind River, Leap!, and Logan Lucky, which made $5.8, $4.8, and $4.4 million, respectively. The reason the box office was so low this weekend is no movie had a wide release this past Friday. The total weekend box office is expected to his $90 million-$100 million, THR reports, but that estimate is down approximately 22 percent from 2016. This makes this holiday weekend box office the worst since the late 1990s. find bike trails.....»»

In fact, it was so bad that none of the new offerings in theaters cleared $5 million... WTF!? Related: This Is The Most Adorable Thing EVER! The Hitman's Bodyguard, in its second weekend, did about $10 million to win, but the fact that no new release cleared $5 million made this weekend's box office the lowest, slowest level since the weekend following the September 11th terror attacks. Unbelievable!! Not much to report here, y'all. Leap! did $5 million on the dot. The Birth Of The Dragon did just $2.6 million. And a 4K 3D version of Terminator 2: Judgment Day playing at 563 theaters did just $560,000. Whoops! Obviously, Saturday night's big draw was the Mayweather-McGregor fight, and that likely kept a LOT of people glued to their TV screens, likely preventing a good amount from heading to the box office. Photos: Titanic Came Out 20 Years Ago — And So Did These Other Films! But it's wild to report that across the board this weekend, all films combined did below $65 million TOTAL -- the lowest overall weekend since September 21-23, 2001.
