Even with Rihanna and the undeniably seXXy Alexander Skarsgard, Battleship blew… itself to pieces!
With execs hoping for $35-40 million, the action movie only caught $9.1 million Friday… meaning an estimated $25 mil weekend!! That's lower than John Carter… oOouch!!
Now, the international profits do read $220 million but with domestic numbers that bad, it's gonna be REALLY hard to swim their way to profitable shores! We mean, the film cost $209 mil to make and that doesn't even include the extravagant marketing.
Guess board game movies aren't always smart!
