Director Andrew Dominik and Brad Pitt's second collaborative effort, Killing Them Softly, had no life to it over its opening weekend in theaters. The thriller made just $7 million and according to The Hollywood Reporter earned a rare 'F' CinemaScore (a sampling of moviegoers). As Killing Them Softly was the only major release to open over the first weekend in December, that meant returning box office powerhouses Breaking Dawn Part 2, Skyfall and Lincoln were able to retain their positions at the top of the box office chart.
Dominik and Pitt's first film was the 2007 drama The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford which made only $3.8 million during its entire domestic theatrical run. And we're thinking it might not be wise to greenlight a third film from the pair...
