MIley Cyrus’ Movie LOL Bombs at Box Office
It looks like Miley Cyrus had a huge miss at the box office for her new flick LOL.
The film only raked in $46,500 this weekend, which compared to Marvel’s The Avengers which pulled in $200 million in theatres. While the film had a much narrower release appearing in only 105 theatres nationwide. LOL made less per-theater ($440) than any other film in conventional U.S. theaters this weekend, running behind “Wrath of the Titans,” which made $640 per theater (and has been out for more than a month). Cyrus took to Twitter to do a bit of damage control by thanking those fans that went to the theaters and said it wasa film she loved making and was proud of which she said is all that matters to her. LOL really did not have much in any type of any conventional advertising going on and in fact the film did not have a premiere event and Miley did not do any interviews for the film.
Based on a French film, “LOL” was meant to mark Miley Cyrus’ transition into more serious acting. Also starring Demi Moore, “LOL” has been given the silent treatment by Lionsgate. There did seem a last-ditch attempt to get a groundswell of Miley’s fans (she has 5.6 million followers on Twitter) to the theaters where it was opening. But it did not garner the type of hype expected. What do you think of this?
