Dredd 3D Had a Disastrous Opening Weekend

By

Clint Eastwood's empty chair bit at the Republican convention didn't hurt him at the box office too much. His baseball movie Trouble With the Curve brought in $13.2 million, putting it in a three-way tie with Jennifer Lawrence's horror flick House At the End of the Street and dirty cop drama End of Watch, featuring a beefed-up, buzz cut Jake Gyllenhaal. However, the weekend's other opener —  the Dredd 3D remake — was a bit of a disaster: It earned just $6.3 million, behind even last week's Resident Evil: Retribution.
