Motherhood Grosses £88 On Opening Weekend
Uma Thurman’s latest movie Motherhood has closed in the UK after only 11 people turned up to see it on its opening weekend.
The dismal performance sets a new all-time low for a big-budget Hollywood release – it grossed just £88. Only one person went to see it on the Sunday, reports The Times.
The movie, which also stars Minnie Driver, had abysmal earnings in America too, taking little more than £40,000 when it opened there in September.
Metrodome, the firm responsible for marketing the film, hoped the DVD release would be more successful.
Jana Edelbaum, the film’s producer, when told of the British takings told the broadsheet: “You’re kidding? We must have broken a new record for grosses. Motherhood is not bad. It’s a very decent movie.”
It is not Britain’s biggest flop. Independent effort My Nikifor, about the Polish artist Nikifor Krynicki, took just £7 on its opening weekend in 2007.
