It appears moviegoers forgot/avoided the weekend’s new releases. With the exception of Disneynature’s latest animal film, Born in China, the new theatrical releases were pretty much ignored, allowing The Fate of the Furious, The Boss Baby, and Beauty and the Beast to retain their hold on first, second, and third places. Warner Bros. Pictures’ new dramatic thriller Unforgettable was actually very forgettable, according to both critics and audiences. Rotten Tomatoes has Unforgettable starring Katherine Heigl and Rosario Dawson sitting at just 25% fresh while those who did purchase a ticket gave it a C.
Despite having Christian Bale and Oscar Isaac in lead roles, the romantic drama The Promise played to a lot of empty seats over its first three days in theaters. Critics liked it slightly better than Unforgettable (its RT score is 45%), yet the $90 million film could only muster $4 million during its opening weekend.
