Miley Cyrus had a movie come out this past weekend. Unfortunately, it had to go up against Marvel’s The Avengers. So how much did it make? Maybe $8 million, like Think Like a Man? Nope. It made $46,500 total, which equals out to $440 per theater.
The Avengers theater average was $47,698. Yeah, let’s just say it’s quite fitting that the film is called LOL. The movie got lost in the shuffle at Lionsgate, getting buried beneath The Hunger Games and What to Expect When You’re Expecting on their priority list. The film was also made back in 2010, so it’s pretty easy to forget about it. And although Lionsgate picked up the 2009-made Cabin in the Woods and released that earlier in the year, LOL didn’t have the word of mouth and critic-love that that film got.
Thank u so much for everyone who went to see LOL. It is a film I loved making and I am proud of…. That’s really all that matters to me. ❤
