Here is a striking example of just how badly a movie can BOMB at the box office. The award of “absolute lowest movie moneymaker of 2012″ goes to, “Playback,” starring Christian Slater with a total of just $264. Two hundred and sixty four dollars…
The horror movie set in a small town earned a total gross of $264.00. It was released in theaters the week of March 16 – 22. Calculations show that only 33 people bought tickets to the movie which was distributed through Magnolia.
The film had an estimated budget of $7.5 million!
Slater plays a crooked cop who is working to expose evil in his small town. Oh, how original.
