According to Box Office Mojo, Straw Dogs earned a mere $5 million in its opening weekend, and finished fifth after The Lion King, Contagion, Drive, and The Help. That’s right — a re-release fared better than poor old A-Skars, James Marsden and Kate Bosworth.
While $5 million may seem like a lot, consider the fact that The Lion King made over $29 mil.
As Simba would say, "Hakuna Matata."
Alexander need not worry this will hurt his film career, though! He's got the big-budget Battleship coming out next year, and is currently filming What Maisie Knew in New York City!
