Weinstein’s “Amityville: The Awakening” Flops HARD At Box Office
Crime doesn’t pay and we couldn’t be happier.
Perpetual pervert Harvey Weinstein‘s departure from his nominal film production hosue has left a trail of slime behind.
The first film released by The Weinstein Company in the wake of Harvey’s sexual abuse scandal has flopped harder than a fat man leaping from a 20-foot diving board.
According to Variety, Amityville: The Awakening only grossed, wait for it…$742 nationwide this past Saturday.
Seven-hundred forty-two cocaine-dusted American dollars.
The Weinstein Company had planned to release “Amityville: The Awakening” several times since last year before scrubbing the release date. It announced on Sept. 21 — two weeks before the massive Harvey Weinstein scandal broke — that “Amityville: The Awakening” would be available for free exclusively on Google Play from Oct. 12 to Nov. 8 and have a limited one-day theatrical release on Oct. 28.
The flick stars Bella Thorne, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Jennifer Morrison, and Cameron Monaghan. None of which are big enough or popular enough to make this movie flourish.
Sorry, not sorry, Harvey!
