Nicolas Cage and the dead hyena laying on his head might not be celebrating today even though they have the #1 movie in the country. “Bangkok Dangerous” did top the box office this weekend, but only with $7.8 million. It’s the lowest grossing #1 movie in the past five years. The last time a #1 movie opened lower was when David Spade’s Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star earned just $6.7 million in 2003. Hah. Almost beat by Dickie Roberts. That has to burn.
“Bangkok Dangerous” cost $45 million to make. The studio probably spent $20 million alone on keeping Nicolas’ wig greased up. I almost considered going to see this shit, but decided I would waste less time by just flushing my $12 down the toilet.
I would have definitely seen it if it was called “Bang COCK Dangerous” and starred a bunch of big-donged nekkid dudes.
Here’s how the rest of the truly shitty weekend box office looked:
1. Bangkok Dangerous – $7.8 million
2. Tropic Thunder – $7.5 million
3. The House Bunny – $5.9 million
4. The Dark Knight – $5.7 million
5. Traitor – $4.7 million
