The long-awaited biopic “Jobs,” – featuring Ashton Kutcher as the late Apple CEO and Chairman, and which became available to watch at 2,381 locations across the U.S, over the weekend, has reportedly disappointed the movie’s distributor Open Road Films with its initial takings of just $6.7 Million.
AppleInsider passes along a report from Box Office Mojo, this afternoon, in which the publication suggests the movie has gained a “fraction of the interest” the 2010 release of “The Social Network” attracted, during its opening weekend.
According to the site:
“Jobs opens at 2,381 locations this weekend. The biopic, which stars Ashton Kutcher as Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, has received a modest marketing push, and critics have given it generally poor reviews (22 percent on Rotten Tomatoes).”
“This is the opposite of 2010‘s The Social Network, which had fantastic reviews and a broad marketing effort. With Jobs generating a fraction of the interest, it’s likely that it opens to less than half of The Social Network’s $22.4 Million; distributor Open Road Films is expecting $8 to $9 Million.”
