BULLET TRAIN Speeds Past DC LEAGUE OF SUPER-PETS At The Box Office As Its CinemaScore Is Revealed!

Bullet Train didn't exactly blow the competition away at the North American box office this weekend, but it did manage to chug past the competition to take the #1 spot. Find out how much it made here...

Deadline reports that after a $12.6 million Friday, Bullet Train is now on track to earn somewhere around $30 million at the North American box office this weekend. It could come in slightly lower (perhaps between $27 million - $29 million), especially with a B+ CinemaScore that suggests moviegoers are as on the fence about this one as critics. 

On Rotten Tomatoes, the Brad Pitt starrer has a "Rotten" 54% score. The Critics Consensus on the site reads, "Bullet Train's colorful cast and high-speed action are almost enough to keep things going after the story runs out of track."

However, with an all-star cast and well-received trailers, why isn't Bullet Train pulling out of the station with a bigger box office haul? The trade believes it's down to that quirky, over-the-top tone, while it's never easy to convince moviegoers to check out an original action flick like this one. 

On the plus side, the movie has gone straight to #1, dethroning DC League of Super-Pets ($10.9 million) after that animated adventure enjoyed just one week at the top. Nope is in third place with $8.05 million, while Thor: Love and Thunder has slipped to fourth with $7.46 million, taking its domestic haul to an estimated $315.8 million after five weeks of release. 

We're in something of a quiet spell for the box office, so Bullet Train has the next few weeks to tally up a decent enough haul. It needs to as well because while it may not be based on an existing IP (Kōtarō Isaka's novel, Maria Beetle, was used as a basis), the movie cost a reported $90 million to produce!
