Jordan, Miles Teller and Imogen Poots, fared a improved of a two, settling for a third place opening with an estimated $9 million in 2,809 locations or about $3200 average. Not good. As expected, a assembly was mostly womanlike and underneath 25 and even yet that demo substantially would’t have worried reading reviews, they usually weren’t interested.

Clearly someone forsaken a round on this one, from a self-existent awards debate to a recover pattern–it should have been given a singular recover to build word of mouth–to putting it out on Super Bowl with churned messages marketing.
