Every once in a while a legendary actor has a box office disaster, and Al Pacino and Anthony Hopkins are no exception. The Oscar winners recently starred in the legal thriller “Misconduct,” which had an opening weekend of only $141 at the British box office.
Over three days, the film was screened at five movie theaters belonging to the Reel Cinemas chain, and made a very disappointing $141, according to figures released by Rentrak.
The film, directed by Shintaro Shimosawa, follows an ambitious lawyer (Josh Duhamel) who lands in cold water after he takes on a case against a corrupt executive of a pharmaceutical company (Hopkin) and has to deal with one of his law firm’s partners (Pacino). Julia Stiles, Malin Ackerman and Glen Powell also star in the “worst film Anthony Hopkins and Al Pacino have ever made,” as described by one British critic.
The movie averaged less than $30 at each location, which means about three to four viewers were at each of the five cinemas. Now it seems as if “Misconduct” has now been pulled from the Reel Cinemas’ lineup. The film debuted in US theaters in February and made about $15,000 in its opening weekend. On the opposite side of the spectrum, “Misconduct” made an astonishing $970, 215 in South Korea, according to Box Office Mojo.
The feature is still scheduled to open in Italy, France and Portugal in the upcoming months.
