Racism doesn’t drive people to the box office.
Following a week of controversy, the debut of Liam Neeson’s latest film ‘Cold Pursuit’ saw one of the lowest box office openings in Liam’s career.
Arriving in third is Lionsgate’s “Cold Pursuit,” Liam Neeson’s action vigilante thriller that launched with $10.9 million from 2,630 screens. Neeson made headlines this week for making racially charged comments about his friend’s rape.
The studio canceled the premiere’s red carpet in the wake of Neeson’s remarks, but controversy didn’t completely deter moviegoers since the revenge thriller opened on par with expectations. Even so, “Cold Pursuit” marks one of the lowest openings of Neeson’s career.
We don’t feel bad for him.
