Will Smith‘s new heist flick, Focus topped the box office this weekend, but the film only skated off with $19.1 million.
The film was projected to rake in $20 to $23 million but fell short making it Smith’s second lowest box office debut in 10 years behind Seven Pounds, which brought in $14.8 million.
Jeff Goldstein, distribution executive vice president at Warner Bros., blames the inclement weather for the low turnout.
It’s all about the snow and the freezing cold. If we had not been beat up by inclement weather, we would have hit $20 million-plus.
I’m headed out to drop my coin in the Focus bucket.
I’ll let you know what I thought of the movie on my Facebook page!
