Box Office: “Bullet Train” Is Slowing Down But Not Picking Up More Passengers


“Bullet Train” is attracting a lot of puns and cliches.

The Brad Pitt studio thriller flick is slowing down day by day and not picking up as many passengers as predicted.

It’s not Brad’s fault. But the movie has low ratings with critics, not much word of mouth, and no pull for the rest of cast. That’s how it’s playing out.

Last night “Bullet Train” made just $3.85 million. Its total since the weekend is an enervating $36.5 million. If the next couple of nights don’t bring more ticket payers, the conductor is going to stop the train.

Maybe they should open the bar car. That might help a lot.
