Low Budget Ethan Hawke Flick SLAYS GOOGLE Mega Movie At BOX OFFICE

June 8, 2013

A low-budget movie in limited release starring Ethan Hawke is shockingly outperforming Google’s new mega-movie starring top notch stars, Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson. Reviewers have universally panned the comedy and it doesn’t really help that Google is intertwined in several controversies at the moment..

HollywoodReporter had this to say about the numbers.

Many reviewers have skewered The Internship — starring Vaughn and Wilson as washed-up salesmen who become interns at Google — for being an advertisement for the giant tech company. Audiences were more generous, giving the comedy a B+ CinemaScore. The Internship is in a close race with Universal’s Fast and Furious 6 — which will jump the $200 million mark over the weekend in North America — and Now You See Me and could come in No. 4 if beat by the two holdovers.

From writer-director James DeMonaco, The Purge — costing a mere $3 million to make and already making its budget back — is set in a future where one night a year all crime is legal. The film received a C CinemaScore, not unusual for the genre.


UPDATED: Box Office Shocker: ‘The Purge’ Tops Friday With $16.7 Mil, Headed for $38 Mil Weekend.. The $3 million pic is vastly overperforming, while Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson comedy struggles as it eyes $19 million weekend; Joss Whedon’s “Much Ado About Nothing” scores at specialty box office.
