The Hollywood Reporter is calling this weekend’s opening of ‘King Arthur’ a flop of epic proportions.
The film, which cost $175 million to make, is on track to earn just $14 million at the box office this weekend.
Early reviews of the film have ranged from ‘bad to awful.’ The movie is described as boring, poorly written and ill-acted.
Hopes that the foreign box office might save the day have proven false with the film earning less than $2 million in the hot Chinese market.
The films’ released has been delayed several times as producers realized they had a disaster on their hands but no amount of editing was able to correct its faults.
In spite of a massive publicity effort, the movie watching public decided to sit this one out.
