With the reviews in and more importantly, the box office receipts tallied, and the boys from Entourage might want to
walk run crawl back to Queens after all.
“Entourage” — the story of four amigos who moved out to LA to make it big, only brought in a paltry $10.4 million landing it in a disappointing fourth place.
“Entourage” ended up a real-life disaster, akin to “Medellín,” the huge flop movie starring Vinnie Chase on the show.
The NYPost had this explanation for the crash and burn box office:
“Entourage” had a wealth-centric worldview that seemed left over from the early 2000s. The movie begins with Vinnie and the boys partying on a giant yacht, and the wealth porn doesn’t stop until the credits roll.
Everyone drives fancy cars! Turtle lives in a stupid-nice mansion! Ari wears designer suits! Someone rides in a private jet! And a helicopter!
After the market crash of ’08 and the subsequent recession, obsessing over big-ticket items feels a little gross and dated.
Beside all that noise, the Entourage movie has only garnered a 30 percent thumbs up on Rotten Tomatoes.
