How can it be? Let's hope for future box office results as word of mouth spreads...suppose I should go see it then huh? ;-)
Heading into the weekend, the media focused its attention on Dimension Films' "Grindhouse," in which Rodriguez and Tarantino join forces to replicate a low-rent double-feature from the '70s. But the homage-within-an-homage -- Rodriguez contributed the zombie flick "Planet Terror" while Tarantino whipped up a tale of liberated chicks who cross paths with a murderous stunt driver in "Death Proof" -- failed to deliver on expectations for the Weinstein Co., opening at No. 4.
While its audience, heavily weighted in favor of over-25 males, awarded the exercise a favorable B-plus rating in exit polling, the movie's total box office amounted to a disappointing $11.60 million. - Source
