Brad Pitt's "Fury" and Michael Keaton's "Birdman" Top Box Office

Posted: October 19th, 2014 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Brad PittSubmit Comment
Brad Pitt's "Fury" war movie took first place at the domestic box office this weekend with $24 million, which is one of the best openings of all time for a World War II film behind "Pearl Harbor" ($59 million), "Inglourious Basterds" ($38 million) and "Saving Private Ryan ($31 million). It's also the highest opening of director David Ayer's career.

The new movie, co-starring Shia LaBeouf and Logan Lerman, cost $68 million to make and has an 81% fresh rating on RottenTomatoes. Thanks to positive reviews, it's expected that "Fury" will have a strong showing overseas, where it begins to roll out next weekend.

The animated "Book of Life" movie, voiced by Channing Tatum and Zoe Salanda, ended up in third place with $17 million, which puts it on track to barely earn back its $50 million budget. Internationally, "Book of Life" took another $8.6 million for a worldwide debut of $25.6 million. It has a 79% fresh rating.

The other new wide release was "Best of Me" romantic drama, which landed in fifth place with $10.2 million, the lowest opening for a Nicholas Sparks adaptation. The previous low was the $12.2 million debut of "A Walk to Remember" in 2002.

"Best of Me" has a terrible 8% fresh rating, but cost only $26 million, a small risk for a Sparks movie. It should easily become profitable after international numbers come in.

On the specialty side, Alehandro G. Inarritu's "Birdman," starring Michael Keaton, Edward Norton, Emma Stone and Naomi Watts, earned $415,000 from 4 theaters for a whopping per location average of $103,750, the second best showing in two years after "The Grand Budapest Hotel" ($202,792). "Birdman" has a 92% fresh rating.

Really, is there anything else to watch? You know, like throwing sh*t sandwiches to starving people....they'll find such a meal quite appetizing in lieu of anything else. And Ayers...while competent, isn't exactly an engrossing storyteller. Add an aging Pitt and an insane Shia, and you get a huge "how gives a f*ck?".

Now if this movie had topped the BO against...Avengers, GotG, or some other big hit, then one might think otherwise.

Zzzzzzzz.

Saw Fury earlier today and it was way f*cking better than I expected it to be. A jarringly brutal and deep film about how destructive and damaging war is to everyone involved.

Shia Labeouf was great and he deserves at least a nomination for best supporting actor.

@DeaftOne

Shia really put forth effort ? I'm pretty sure the only reason why is because Brad wouldn't put up with Shia's typical, go-through-the-motions sh*t on set and his drama off set.
