Per the NY Times "Arts Beat" column's weekend wrap-up of the national movie box office results:
Walden Media’s “Won’t Back Down,” an education reform drama starring Viola Davis and Maggie Gyllenhaal, bombed, selling about $2.7 million in tickets in wide release.
Sometimes there IS a little justice in the world. Really a shame that two such respectable actresses could fall for such propagandist claptrap, and judging from the critics, incredibly poorly written to boot.
As I wrote on the blog today, the film made an unbelievably low $82 per screening in its opening weekend.
