Brad Pitt’s ‘Bullet Train’ opens to $30 million

Must Read

The film ‘Bullet Train,’ starring Brad Pitt, has a projected opening weekend gross of $30 million.

“Bullet Train” should top charts. Friday’s $12.6 million from 4,357 venues projected $30 million. The film must keep rolling through August to recoup its $90 million budget.

All-star cast will help. The cast features Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Joey King, Brian Tyree Henry, Andrew Koji, Hiroyuki Sanada, Michael Shannon, and Bad Bunny.

“Bullet Train” scored 41% on Rotten Tomatoes. Peter Debruge, Variety’s chief film critic, says the dialogue and mock-British accents don’t compare to Tarantino and Ritchie.

“Bullet Train” has more fans. Cinema Score gave the picture a “B+,” signifying strong audience favor. “Bullet Train” should benefit from August’s lack of high-profile releases.

“The Lost City,” featuring “Bullet Train” bit players Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum, opened to $30 million and topped $100 million domestically.

Pitt’s old stunt double David Leitch directed the film, which features him as a bullet train hitman. He discovers that other killers have conflicting orders.

“Easter Sunday,” Universal’s new wide release, grossed $2 million on Friday. Jo Koy’s comedy is projected to open with $5 million from 3,175 venues, placing it seventh on the charts.

Koy plays a struggling actor and father at his troubled Filipino American family’s Easter celebration.

The comedy costs $17 million before marketing and distribution, so Universal will hope for good word-of-mouth and a month without rival movies.
