Violence. Mayhem. Brad Pitt. You might think this would be a winning combination at the box office, but you’d be wrong.
Killing Them Softly lived up to its name, opening to a very soft $7 million this weekend, way down in seventh place. It also earned an atrocious ‘F’ CinemaScore from audience who were apparently underwhelmed by what they saw. It’s one of Brad’s worst-ever openings for a wide release, bested by Twilight, Skyfall, and Lincoln ― all of which had been out for more than a week (in Skyfall’s case, three).
What gives? Read on after the jump.
