Box Office: Bob Marley Movie “One Love” Comes Back to Earth, Drops 73% in Second Day of Release


No box office, no cry.

On its second day of release, the Bob Marley movie “One Love” fell back to Earth.

After making over $14 million on Wednesday, the commotion has calmed down.

Thursday’s take was $3.85 million, bringing the total two days to a still very successful $17.9 million.

Tonight begins the crucial weekend push. Paramount could see a total of more than $30 million by Sunday night.

The movie’s release has been good Marley’s music, anyway. His greatest hits have risen right up the charts. Audience interest on Rotten Tomatoes is still high at 95% even though reviews are less than stellar.

Regardless, I will try and see “One Love” this weekend, just for the music, if nothing else!
