Nicolas Cage's "Drive Angry 3D" is a Disaster at Box Office
From worstpreviews, There were two new wide releases this weekend, the Farrelly brothers' R-rated comedy "Hall Pass" and Nicolas Cage's "Drive Angry 3D." Both underperformed at the box office.
"Hall Pass" landed in second place with $13.4 million, just behind "Gnomeo and Juliet," which landed in first. "Hall Pass" cost $36 million to develop, and Warner Bros was hoping to open at least a few million higher. Either way, the comedy will likely be able to make its budget back.
"Drive Angry 3D," however, has no chance of making anything back. The film cost around $50 million and grossed only $5.1 million, which was only good enough to take ninth place at the box office.
