I’m sorry, but “Gotti” is not the popular movie everyone was waiting to see.
After making $1.7 million over the weekend, the John Travolta mob flick had a difficult Monday and Tuesday.
In fact, on Monday “Gotti” had the biggest drop from Sunday of any new or current film playing in 500 theaters or more– 64%. On Tuesday, when adults go to the movies, “Gotti” had the smallest increase among the same films– 12%.
On Sunday it seemed like fake reviewers had infiltrated Rotten Tomatoes and posted a bunch of improbably positive reviews in the fan section.
After five days, “Gotti” has made $2.1 million. Yesterday, they took in $218,000, which I think is shocking. Around 2,100 people maybe sat through it.
Maybe things will pick up tonight and tomorrow. Hope floats, just like a dead body in the East River.
