RED Opens Strong
RED seems to have buck the recent trend of comic book movies and opened with a fairly strong $22 million weekend. This is after disappointing performances by other high profile comic book based movies earlier this year.
The movie which stars Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, Morgan Freeman and John Malkovich drew an 53 percent male audience and 58 percent of that was over the age of 34, according to Summit Entertainment.
The movie is based on the comic book series from Warren Ellis and Cully Hamner and published by the DC comics imprint Wildstorm.
We haven’t seen the movie to give our thoughts but it’s received generally positive reviews from critics and audiences.
