Home business Box Office: “Green Knight” (G’night), “Stillwater” Tanks, “Jungle Cruise” Sinks, “Old” Gets...

People went to the movies this weekend but not in droves. And in one case just not enough.

That would be Disney’s ‘Jungle Cruise,” which took $34 million at the Box office and maybe $30 mil more on Disney Premiere Access. But it’s not enough! This movie cost $200 million. This is going to be a long slog. They’ve picked up $27 million abroad, but more, more, more! Not a hit by any stretch. Not a disaster, Yet.

“Green Knight” from A24 got a lot of hype but not much love from the audience. Just under $6.8 million weekend. Love Dev Patel but really have no interest in this. Since no one from A24 responded, I will venture into a theater this week for my Rotten Tomatoes review.

M. Night Shyamalan’s “Old” got “old” fast. Total take is now $30 million. Not surprised since this is not a movie anyone would want to see again, let alone the first time.

Really in worse shape is the G.I. Joe movie “Snake Eyes,” basically dead after 2 weeks at $27 million.

Kudos to Focus Features for wrangling $4 million so far from “Roadrunner,” the Anthony Bourdain doc that had some controversy surrounding the director inventing dialogue for the deceased globe trotting gourmand. That’s a much better showing than “Summer of Soul,” and at least this one was original.
