Julia Roberts And Jennifer Aniston Movie Set for Disastrous Weekend
On Friday, the R-rated feline comedy Keanu opened to $3.5 million from 2,658 theaters at the North American box office, enough to beat Garry Marshall’s star-studded Mother’s Day, which grossed an estimated $2.7 million from 3,035 theaters.
Neither, of course, were able to beat holdover The Jungle Book, which earned another $10.3 million to jump the $600 million mark globally for Disney and director Jon Favreau.
Directed by Marshall, Mother’s Day — starring Jennifer Aniston, Julia Roberts, Jason Sudeikis and Kate Hudson — is struggling badly in its debut. Based on Friday’s numbers, the $25 million film is now expected to gross roughly $7.7 million. That’s well behind the $56.3 million domestic debut of Marshall’s holiday ensemble film, Valentine’s Day, which likewise starred Julia Roberts, but just shy of the $13 million launch of New Year’s Eve.
DOES THIS EVEN COVER JULIA’S ROBERTS HUGE SALARY?
