John Travolta’s “Gotti” movie has all but disappeared from the box office charts. Even though it seems to be playing in some theaters, Vertical Entertainment didn’t report numbers from Friday night.The weekend take was just $305K from 331 locations.
It’s Travolta’s biggest bomb in 20 years. So far there’s no hope of overseas box office, as only Hungary has reported with $57K.
But small films can be hits if they’re well made. The Mister Rogers documentary “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” has made over $7.5 million and is growing. Focus Features tapped into a nostalgia for the late children’s show host and it worked. Personally, I’m ready for the Soupy Sales movie.
Neon’s terrific “Three Identical Strangers” — a must see doc– scored $32K per screen for a limited NY-LA opening total of $163K.
In blockbuster news, “Jurassic World” overcame its meh reviews and made another $60 million this weekend for a total of $264 million. I’m happy for that dinosaur named Blue, I liked him.
“Incredibles 2” is almost at $500 million. Incredible!
