It was a tough start for ‘The Waitress’, with the star turning in a lackluster performance in ‘The Great Gatsby’, a film that opened to disappointing reviews.
‘The Hunger Games’ director James Gunn was not far behind with a stellar performance in the film, which had a $400 million domestic haul.
But things were looking up when ‘The Hobbit’ and ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ opened to solid debuts last year.
‘Wreck-It Ralph’ is also looking like a hit with critics and has earned rave reviews.
With a slew of major awards including Best Picture and Best Actor, ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’ could be the biggest hit yet.
‘American Beauty’ has a solid $25 million opening in theaters, but it could be a long road to a big payday for ‘Hannibal’.
The best-selling book series has a strong opening weekend.
The film is based on the novels of Neil Gaiman and Neil Burger.
