While Americans lend help and support during the hurricanes, anti-Trump actress Jennifer Lawrence appeared to blame the “wrath” of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma on America’s election of President Donald Trump. The actress didn’t seem to care about Trump voters, almost daring them not to watch her next movie. Her new film “Mother!” opened to a devastating $7.5 million.
From Hollywood reporter:
“American Assassin’ also beats ‘mother!,’ an elevated horror film earning an F CinemaScore and marking the worst wide opening of Jennifer Lawrence’s career with $7.5 million.
Darren Aronofsky’s mother! stalled in its domestic box office debut, grossing an estimated $7.5 million from 2,368 theaters after receiving a rare F CinemaScore and facing competition from blockbuster It.
mother!, an elevated psychological horror-thriller, supplants The House at the End of the Street ($12.3 million) to mark the lowest nationwide launch of Jennifer Lawrence’s career. The Paramount title, costing $30 million to produce, came in No. 3 for the weekend behind It and new offering American Assassin. (In a sign that summer is over, all three titles are rated R.)
