BOX OFFICE: AFTER EARTH Grosses $1M In Thursday Night Screenings
M. Night Shaymalan's critically panned sci-fi film After Earth, starring Will and Jaden Smith, has officially made $1 million in Thursday night showings. The movie is now on its way to a $35M opening weekend.
Despite mostly very negative reviews (the film currently has an abysmal 12% rating on Rotten Tomatoes), M. Night Shyamalan's Will and Jaden Smith-starrer After Earth looks to have an average box office opening. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the sci-fi movie grossed a soft $1M in its Thursday night opening, behind the $1.5M debut of Summit's Now You See Me. Despite this, After Earth will open ahead of the Louis Leterrier-directed heist thriller, with a $35M opening weekend being predicted. This is a new low in recent years for Will Smith, who is considered one of Hollywood's biggest A-list actors. Do you plan on seeing After Earth this weekend?
