Will Smith just suffered the worst debut opening of his moviemaking career
Business Insider – “Collateral Beauty” has already had a bit of a hammering from film critics and fans, and things have just gotten worse.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the film has now given star Will Smith the worst wide debut of his career. Ouch.
Despite featuring Smith and a host of other big names, including Helen Mirren, Keira Knightley, and Kate Winslet, the movie opened to just $7 million in ticket sales this weekend. That puts it at fourth place at the US box office.
The film features Smith playing an advertising man who writes letters to the concepts of Time, Love, and Death to seek solace and guidance after the death of his child.
The underperformance of “Collateral Beauty” is another Christmas disappointment for Smith after “Concussion,” his drama about American football players who suffer brain damage, had a similarly low opening taking of $10.5 million last year.
