Weekend Box Office: Some Hard Feelings About JLaw Movie Falling Short, “Asteroid City” Cosmic Despite Low Audience Score, “The Flash” Dashed


Weekend box office saw “Spider Man: Across the Spiderverse” back at number 1 because “The Flash” as dashed.

“The Flash” fell 70% from last weekend, and landed at $87.6 million. Go see it anyway.

Cosmic week for Wes Anderson’s “Asteroid City” which made $9 million over the weekend. Total is $10 million now. That’s two thirds of the total amount made by “The French Dispatch.” Will it hold up? Or is that the Anderson clique? We’ll see how if it has “legs.”

FYI: “Asteroid City” has just a 62% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes. Worth remembering. Critics score is a soft 76% for an auteur movie.

Jennifer Lawrence got all nekkid for “No Hard Feelings.” But reviews are soft, and so are the feelings. This is an R rated movie with No Sex! Just a lot of talk, and JLaw unclothed. Total $15 million. So that’s her salary. They’ll need some more to pay everyone else, and the theaters.
