Box office: ‘Bullet Train’ arrives with $30.1 million debut, ‘Easter Sunday’ stumbles
“Bullet Train,” a John Wick-ian movie starring Brad Pitt in the aisle seat, arrived in theaters with an opening weekend of $30.1 million. That’s enough to top the national box office chart, but it’s only a mediocre result considering “Bullet Train’s” $90 million price tag and Pitt’s star power. The Sony Pictures outlet will need to maintain momentum in the coming weeks as it attempts to break even or turn a profit. “Bullet Train” tries to prove that an action movie that isn’t based on a comic book or a toy line can defy the odds and resonate with audiences. But part of the problem for the film is that the critics weren’t on board. “Bullet Train” earned a mediocre 41% approval rating on review aggregation website Rotten Tomatoes, with many critics criticizing the film for being too derivative of the work of Guy Ritchie and Quentin Tarantino. Variety’s chief film critic Peter Debruge was mixed on “Bullet Train”, writing that “neither the characters nor the film they inhabit is particularly deep”.
