The latest films released by Hollywood A-listers Brad Pitt and Gerard Butler flopped during their opening weekend at the box office.
Last week Pitt’s ‘Killing Them Softly’ earned a dismal $6.8 million while six previously released films scored significantly bigger numbers.
Unfortunately for Butler and his co-star Jessica Biel, ‘Playing for Keeps’ did poorly this week, pulling in $6 million during its opening weekend, also soundly beaten by five previously released films that are still raking in revenue 3-5 weeks after hitting theaters.
The popular James Bond flick ‘Skyfall’ topped the chart again, bringing the total gross to $261,620,000. Other popular flicks this weekend were ‘Rise of the Guardians,’ ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2,’ ‘Lincoln,’ and ‘Life of Pi.’
Things weren’t all bad for Pitt, who earned his third Oscar nomination this year for ‘Moneyball’ and got engaged to Angelina Jolie.
