Black Mass Domestic Total as of Oct. 15, 2015: $58,951,782
Distributor: Warner Bros. Release Date: September 18, 2015
Genre: Crime Drama Runtime: 2 hrs. 2 min.
MPAA Rating: R Production Budget: $53 million

SEP 26, 2015 Johnny Depp’s Black Mass dropped a significant 60% on its second Friday, earning $3.5 million on its second Friday. That’s a much larger drop than the likes of The Departed (-34%), Argo (-14%), The Town (-40%) and Prisoners (-51%). Now this isn’t a surprise considering how frontloaded the movie was last weekend, and the opening is still a feather in Warner Bros./Time Warner TWX +0.00% Inc.’s cap after a summer of iffy results. The film should earn $11m for the weekend (-50%) for a $42m ten-day total. That’s not bad, but it doesn’t scream Oscar frontrunner either although Johnny Depp is still in the running for the moment.

The movie had a fairly light marketing effort: anecdotally, many people seemed surprised to learn that the movie was in theaters . Director Robert Rodriguez’s brand seems to have taken a hit as of late. Since Sin City, none of his movies have earned over $40 million at the domestic box office. His last two movies—both sequels—were off dramatically from their predecessors: Machete Kills was down 70 percent from the first Machete, while Spy Kids: All the Time in the World was off 66 percent from Spy Kids 3D: Game Over.

The graphic novel sequel scored a woeful $6.5 million from 2,894 locations, a fraction of the $29.1 million that the first “Sin City” made in 2005. The retro-noir thriller brought back stars Bruce Willis and Mickey Rourke and co-director Robert Rodriguez, but the follow-up to a film that had proved so influential now may have seemed passé after a decade that saw a succession of similarly themed comicbook adaptations, such as “300” and “The Watchmen,” routinely crop up on screen.

“We weren’t prepared for this level of rejection by the public,” said Erik Lomis, The Weinstein Company’s head of theatrical distribution. “We thought the film would resonate more.

Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s sequel to their superstylized, hardboiled crime drama “Sin City” also required the actors to work under green screen circumstances for demanding 3-D cameras. Temple, who plays Sally, one of the film’s many molls, is confident that the viewing effect will be totally worth it. Temple was cast as Sally, Joey’s mistress and a girl from Old Town, Joey Canelli, a married businessman who is cheating on his wife.

Mr. Weinstein said he was also hoping to quickly follow the August release of the film Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, directed by Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez, with a Sin City television series from Mr. Miller and Mr. Rodriguez.
