UPDATE: Box Office Crash for Celine Dion “Love Again” Movie with Less Than $1 Million in 2 Days


Sony’s latest stealth release, “Love Again,” crashed at the box office.

The movie featuring Celine Dion in person, and 11 of her songs, took in just 955,000 in two days. On Thursday night, in previews, the film took in just $240,000. The balance came on Friday night.

That the film is dead on arrival is no shock. It has terrible reviews, and there was little to no press before release. On Rotten Tomatoes, the rating is just 13% now.

Also in the dumper: the soundtrack. It hasn’t appeared yet on any iTunes chart. It’s number 66 on Amazon. There are six new Celine Dion songs and no one cares, which is pretty sad.
