Box Office: Sony Should Have Put Spider Man in Jennifer Lawrence Movie, All-Star “Asteroid” Up to $1.2 Million, “The Flash” Crash


Thursday box office:

Sony should just put Spider Man in every movie and be done with it. They’ve got the number 1 film with
“Spider Man: Across the SpiderVerse,” making money like crazy.

But everything else they try is a disappointment. That brings us to Jennifer Lawrence, an Oscar winner, getting naked and running around a beach in “No Hard Feelings.” Apparently there are a lot of soft feelings. The raunchy comedy took in $2.1 million on Thursday night (which includes last week’s sneak peeks). Per theater was just $783.

Wes Anderson’s “Asteroid City” made $60,000 last night. It’s up to $1.2 million. Going wider this weekend.

“The Flash” is fading. It only made $2.8 million last night, not so different than “No Hard Feelings” but in more theaters. If only we could go back in time and fix so many things here.
