Another interesting stat I saw was that a large percentage of ticket buyers were older or over 40. I guess the premise didnt appeal much to younger audiences.
There's no way the movie gets even close to making its money back. If it tops $100M I'd be surprised but not shocked, but I doubt it goes over $120M total. All things considered, though, given how badly the movie was thought of (I get the feeling the studio just finally facepalmed and threw it out there), I think they'd be pleased if it made $70M.
