We guess all that star wattage did NOT matter!
Although - darn - this movie had a lot of actors who can usually carry a movie all by themselves!
Sin City: A Dame to Kill For stars Jessica Alba, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Josh Brolin, Eva Green, Rosario Dawson, and Bruce Willis to name a few, and was predicted by many box office experts to hit $15M this weekend.
Which, compared to the first Sin City which opened to a $29M weekend, seemed pretty weak.
But the newest flick from director Robert Rodriguez and the creator of the series Frank Miller is opening up FAR below those modest expectations!
Recent reports are speculating that the film will make about $10M this weekend despite opening up at a lot of locations - 2,894 sites to be exact - and that's definitely some stinky numbers if those figures hold.
Especially since its budget is believed to have been around $60M-$70M!
Meanwhile Chloë Grace Moretz's If I Stay is looking like it's going to be the top box office draw this weekend as it's heading towards a $17M opening weekend! Which already beats its estimated $11M budget.
Talk about a tale of two movies!
We guess lots of stars doesn't always matter! The proof is in the sinful pudding!
