Even George Clooney couldn’t make this movie take off over the weekend.
Disney’s expensive fantasy adventure, Tomorrowland, essentially had Memorial Day weekend to itself, and still only pulled in an underwhelming $41.7 million in its first four days in theaters according to Rentrak estimates on Monday.
It’s a disappointing debut for a film that cost a reported $180 million to produce. Disney put it all on the line for this ambitious George Clooney-led promotional campaign.
“It’s not ever ideal to be below your estimate before the weekend starts, but it feels like it’s too early to judge the run,” said Disney’s Distribution EVP Dave Hollis.
Despite the lack of success at the box office, George Clooney and his wife Amal made a splash at the Tokyo premiere of the film. She turned heads wearing a stunning yellow dress and showing support for her husband as he promoted the new film.
