Disney and DreamWorks’ WikiLeaks movie “
The Fifth Estate” bombed at the box office this weekend.
The film, which cost an estimated $US28 million to make, barely made the top 10 earning $US1.7 million in ticket sales opening weekend.
Before the film’s release, WikiLeaks leaked a script of the film and a long 4,000-word memo tearing apart the film.
None of this weekend’s newcomers fared impressively. “Escape Plan” with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone brought in $US9.8 million while the new “Carrie” film earned $US17 million.
Of recent box-office bombs, the performance of “The Fifth Estate” was far below others.
