Miley Cyrus‘ film ‘LOL’ made a total of only $46,500 this weekend, Movie City News estimates. That is just a few hundred dollars more than what ‘Marvel’s The Avengers took in per theater: $46,100, according to MCN. LOL appeared in only 105 theaters nationwide, but ‘LOL’ made less per-theater ($440) than any other film in conventional U.S. theaters this weekend.
Box office analyst: ‘My guess is Lionsgate had test screenings that were catastrophic.’ There was no premiere and Miley did no interviews with major outlets for ‘LOL.’ ‘Miley Cyrus has a real image problem. Basically she’s been undone by ‘Saturday Night Live’..people don’t take her seriously.’
Boxoffice.com editor: ‘It definitely doesn’t bode well for Miley Cyrus’ career. This comes as something of a surprise because ‘ The Last Song’ proved that she could be a draw outside of ‘Hannah Montana.’ After this, she’ll have to ditch the family-friendly stuff and go for something a little more edgy if she wants to stay relevant.’ Did anyone see it? It actually doesn’t look that bad..
