Grand Rapids Filmed ’30 Minutes Or Less’ Has Disappointing Opening Weekend
$13 million is disappointing? Only in Hollywood.
’30 Minutes Or Less’ opened Friday and finished the weekend with $13 million. That’s a lot of pizzas, but short of the $28 million that it cost to make the movie that was filmed in Grand Rapids.
’30 Minutes Or Less’ had a special Grand Rapids premiere a couple of weeks ago. This weekend the rest of the country had its first chance to see the movie. It finished in fifth place overall, while making $13 million.
’30 Minutes Or Less’ wasn’t expected to be a huge blockbuster, still the opening is a bit disappointing. No doubt, part of the reason is an overabundance of R-rated comedies in theaters this summer. ’The Hangover Part II’ and ‘The Change-Up’ come to mind.
I think I’ll wait for the blu-ray on Netflix, assuming I don’t cancel when the rates go up.
