I can’t wait to spend the next days making fun of washed-up Arnold Schwarzenegger flopping in 9th place playing a washed-up lawman in The Last Stand. ”Nobody wants to see Arnold,” one rival studio exec giggled Friday night.
Lionsgate should demand its money back from Arnie who clearly can’t open a movie anymore even with a ‘B’ CinemaScore from audiences. Pic made only a pathetic $1.9M Friday and probably no more than $6.6M for the long holiday. I don’t think that even pays for Schwarzenegger’s cigar bill.
This does not bode well at all for the return of Arnold to the big screen. I hate to say it but I think BULLET TO THE HEAD is heading for a similar box office fate as THE LAST STAND. A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD should get a draw as its a well known franchise but we better hope THE TOMB delivers in September. These guys can't survive on EXPENDABLES films alone.
