It's Hard Out There for an Expendable Action Star: "Bullet to the Head," "Parker," and "The Last Stand" All Bombed

Within each of the last three weeks, an action movie starring an action star from “The Expendables” opened to weak results. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s comeback film “The Last Stand” opened to a weak $6.3M on the weekend of January 18-20. After three weeks, it grossed just $11.7M, and looks like it’ll end its run at $12M.
"The Last Stand"'s Opening Is Arnold Schwarzenegger's Worst in Nearly Three Decades; Will "The Tomb" Do Better?

I’m not sure if anyone was expecting Arnold Schwarzenegger’s comeback film “The Last Stand” to sell like gangbusters at the box office. If you did, you would be disappointed. After all, it did open in one of the slowest months of the movie-going season. Even Lionsgate, the studio backing it, was hesitant, only willing to part with $30M to make the film.

This weekend proved very lucrative for one of last week’s releases, but a little disappointing for the other two films, sad to say. Mama came out on top this weekend, earning over $28.1 million (a considerable amount greater than its projected range of $18.5-$20 million), spiting many critics that claimed the film was underdeveloped in terms of scripting.

This week’s batch of new releases is looking especially grim, both in terms of subject matter (revenge, violence, horror, and crime are popular themes this week), and ratings, unfortunately. Opening today is another suspense-horror film from the twisted mind of Guillermo del Toro: Mama. The film tells of two little girls recently discovered in the woods who had disappeared after their parents’ deaths years previous, and the dark presence that followed them out of the woods.
