“David Leitch’s late-Summer event pic stars Brad Pitt”–Paul Ebeling
David Leitch’s Bullet Train easily topped the North American box office chart with an estimated weekend take of $30.1-M, including a Friday haul of $12.6-M.
Overseas, the R-rated pic earned an impressive $32.4-M for a global start of $62.4-M.
Brad Pitt leads a star-packed cast in this tale of an assassin roaming a high-speed Japanese bullet train. Other names on the marquee include Joey King, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Brian Tyree Henry, Andrew Koji, Hiroyuki Sanada, Michael Shannon and Sandra Bullock.
Bullet Train is the last major studio offering of the Summer, putting increased pressure on the movie’s performance. Generally, the Summer box office season lasts until Labor Day, but delays due to the VirusCasedemic continue and studios are seeing some of their films delayed in postproduction.
Elsewhere in the Top 10, DC League of Super Pets tumbled 51% to an estimated $11.2-M for a 10-day domestic total of $45.1-M.
Have some fun, see a movie in a theater this week, Keep the Faith!
