Grindhouse

Last week Grindhouse failed at the Box Office, this week the movie officially BOMBED. According to the Friday numbers, the Quentin Tarantino/Robert Rodriguez double feature dropped a whopping 74% from last week. The film will probably make $4 million in its second weekend, again less than half of the studio and independent estimates.

To further explain how terrible this is: Grindhouse had a per screen average of $494. That’s about 55 tickets sold per theater on Friday. Considering that the movie screens four times during the day, most theaters probably packed a hefty 14 moviegoers per screening. And I’m sure the theaters in Middle America could have been completely empty.

Update: The full weekend numbers confirm our report. Grindhouse had a per screen average of $1,612. Which is $537 per screen per day, and $67 per screening (estimated). So this means that only 14-18 tickets were bought per screening.
