A lot of low budget movies have been the surprise of the horror genre, but the main film that always comes to mind is Paranormal Activity. As I am not really a horror fan to begin with, I usually stray away from those type of movies. But today, I was shown that sometimes the biggest horrors in film is the gross made at the box office. Well for producers anyway.
Cue the movie ‘Playback’.
Whenever I think of “tanks” in film, I’d probably mention an action movie such as xXx 2 or White House Down, where explosions literally rained down from the sky. And they had tanks.
But I’m a year ahead of Playback… a movie which cost $7.5 million and only made $252 on it’s opening weekend.
Yes, it only made $252 at box office, if you don’t count the first week, where they earned an extra $12 dollars on that total. So a total of $264 in a week (if you count overtime).
The producers shouldn’t be too upset. It could be a lot worse, they could’ve ran out of tissues for a start.
