Box Office: John Travolta’s “Gotti” Loses 37 Theaters But Finds a Few Fans in Hungary


“Gotti” doesn’t need any more mob metaphors about being whacked at the box office. It’s time for the funeral.

The John Travolta disaster lost 40 theaters in release this weekend, its second, and went into sharp  decline.

On Friday night the Zero-rated film scored just $219,000 in 466 theaters. The total through Saturday morning is $2.66 million. On the upside, it will cross the $3 million mark on Sunday, presumably.

“Gotti” does have some foreign fans. According to, Travolta and company have made $57,063 in Hungary since June 14th. There’s no word on whether it’s more popular in Buda or Pest.

There are currently 32 reviews of “Gotti” on Rotten Tomatoes. None are positive.
