Vince Vaughn’s ‘Unfinished Business’ Gives Him 5 Straight Box-Office Bombs Maybe HBO’s “True Detective” will turn things around for Vince Vaughn. The comedy actor’s new film “Unfinished Business” became his fifth consecutive — and worst — belly flop at the box office, taking in an anemic $4.8 million in its debut this weekend for distributor Twentieth Century Fox. Vaughn’s other recent misfires include “Delivery Man,” “The Internship,” “The Watch” and “The Dilemma.” A stint on the hit cable TV series seemed to work for Matthew McConaughey, whose Emmy for his work on “True Detective” was part of a career rebound that included a Best Actor Oscar for the “Da

However, money earned this year still counts towards their overall haul, and that's why The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 became 2014's #1 movie on January 21st. It's a weird sounding system, but that's just how it works! Regardless, they've both now been overtaken by American Sniper. The Clint Eastwood helmed biopic (which actually stars the voice of Rocket Raccoon, Bradley Cooper) with an estimated $337,209,000.
