Spike Lee’s Oldboy Does Not Even Make a Million Dollars

Spike Lee's Oldboy

I honestly cannot believe this news. Even with big names like Spike Lee, Josh Brolin, Elizabeth Olsen, Sharlto Copley and Samuel Jackson, FilmDistrict’s “Oldboy” scored one of the weakest Thanksgiving openings of all time, estimating a dismal $850,000 in five days, though the film showed at just 583 locations (not technically a wide release), Variety reports.

Even with the negative press and weak reviews, it is a shocker to see the film get such a small release, and even more bizarre to see it not even pull in $1M over the course of a whopping 5 day holiday weekend. This has easily got to be one of the biggest flops in recent memory.
