Box Office Poison: Opening of Jennifer Lawrence’s ‘mother!’ Could Hit Career Low

Back in September of 2012, a low-budget horror film calledHouse at the End of the Street was released all across the nation on 3,083 screens. Because Jennifer Lawrence was the film’s star, because she had just broken through in a major way thanks toWinter’s Bone and X-Men: First Class, this low-budget horror film opened just shy of first place with a perfectly respectable $12.3 million.

As of today, that $12.3M is the lowest wide release opening of Lawrence’s career. However, with tomorrow’s wide release of mother!, Lawrence could break that ignoble record.

    Pretty well all of Hollywood’s movies are garbage. I see the big movies the media are excited about at TIFF, are about tennis. And of course movies are increasingly designed for the Chinese market, as the commies continue to gobble up the Hollywood studios.

    In fairness, this month has seen the lowest box office takes worldwide for all major Hollywood releases, not just Jenny.

    She also made some unpleasant political noises. That does not help her box office business.

    All the writing talent seems to have transferred over to TV. There are some terrific TV shows, though many are marred by feminism, which has also made movies even more unwatchable.
